How to Copy/Cut/Paste on a Mac
I’m not sure how a PC owner does copy and paste on their computer.According to my friend, it is quite different than on a Mac.So you PC owners who stumble across a marvelous Mac here are some simple directions that might help you when you want to copy, cut and paste.
Let’s take a Word document.At the tippety top of the screen…(and my Word speller check says that word “tippety” is not a word, but surely you know what I mean—you know, the very top)…anyway, up there are a row of words that read:Word – File – Edit – View – Insert – Format – Font – Tools – Table – Window – Work – Help
First highlight the text you want to copy.Then click on “Edit”.A menu will drop down.Click on “Copy” and that puts it on your clipboard (which is out of sight).Go to the place you want to put the text and click your cursor to show the blinking line.From there go up to “Edit” and on the menu click on “Paste”.That will put the text you copied in the place you marked for it to go.
Hopefully this will help some PC users when using a Mac computer.
