Cutting, Copying, Pasting and Undo 
After text is selected, it can be copied or cut and placed in a new location 
within a document, among documents or even in another application.Text can be 
copied from Word to a form on the Internet, an email, or address book entry.Any 
edit field in Windows will accept copied or cut text. 
When text is cut or copied, it's placed in a special part of your computer's 
memory called the clipboard.The clipboard is in the RAM memory of your 
computer.RAM is Random Access Memory.RAM is the primary memory of your 
computer.When you create a document, cut text, load a web page or take any 
action that isn't saved to your computer's hard drive, it is in the RAM memory 
of your computer.RAM memory is temporary memory.If your computer crashes or 
shuts down unexpectedly, data in the RAM memory will be lost. 
The keyboard commands for cutting, copying and pasting are all located on the 
bottom left of your keyboard. The letters Z, X, C and V are used with CTRL to 
perform these actions. 
Once text is selected, use the following commands to cut, copy or paste: 
Copy CTRL-C 
Paste CTRL-V 
When text is copied, it is left in the document and copied to the Windows 
clipboard.Cutting text removes it from the document and places it in the 
Windows clipboard. 
After cutting or copying the text, you can paste it to another location.To 
paste the text, place the focus of the cursor at the location to which you 
would like to paste the text and press CTRL-V.The text will be inserted at the 
location of the cursor. 
After inserting text, be sure to check the spacing.You don't' want words to run 
together or have several spaces in the middle of a sentence. 
The copied or cut text will remain in the clipboard until it is overwritten 
with new text or until your computer is rebooted.You could continue to work on 
your computer for several hours and, as long as you don't copy or cut new text 
to the clipboard, the text will be waiting in the clipboard to be pasted to a 
new location.
