I will use a poem by Edgar Allan Poe to

demonstrate how to copy and paste!

Let's Begin.......

This is the poem below that I want to take a portion of to copy and paste......


To The River

by Edgar Allan Poe
(published 1829)

Fair river! in thy bright, clear flow
Of crystal, wandering water,
Thou art an emblem of the glow
Of beauty -- the unhidden heart --
The playful maziness of art
In old Alberto's daughter;

But when within thy wave she looks --
Which glistens then, and trembles --
Why, then, the prettiest of brooks
Her worshipper resembles;
For in my heart, as in thy stream,
Her image deeply lies --
The heart which trembles at the beam
Of her soul-searching eyes.


I want to copy the first 2 lines of

the poem shown above so what I will do is this:


Point your cursor and place it in front

of the first word you want to start copying....Hold

the left click *index finger* down without letting it up...

and drag it forward and you will see the text highlight...


Highlighted area shown below:

When you have highlighted your text, you just

release the left click....Then you can point the cursor over the

highlighted area and right click *middle finger*

and from the drop down options, choose copy...

Ahhhhh, we are almost done....

Now you have copied the selected text and need to paste it..

Place your cursor again on a clean area of email or

where you would like to paste your text, and right click *middle

finger* and choose PASTE from the drop down options...

That''s it....You have copied and pasted!

This takes all of seconds once you learn this!


Happy Copying & Pasting!
