What is "copy, cut, and paste?"

Cut, copy and paste are standard Windows and Mac functions that let you transfer nearly anything from one program to another.  For example: Let's say you see a picture on the Internet and think to yourself, "That would be great in my book report about world deserts."  You could transfer that great picture to your book report (maybe you are using Microsoft Word ) within seconds using the "copy, cut and paste" function.

This is what you do:

1.) Use your mouse to highlight the text/words that you want us to correct.  Highlighting makes the black text white and the white background black.  

2.) RIGHT click your mouse (press the right mouse button).  A little menu will come up. Select "copy."  

3.) Now, go to the place where you want that text to go to (i.e.: email program, MyEnglishTeacher.net Web site).  Click anywhere in the area where the text will go.  This should cause a cursor/vertical line to start blinking.  RIGHT click your mouse (press the right mouse button) again.  A menu will come up.  Click "paste."

4.)  That's it.  You're done!

5.)  "Cut" will just delete the highlighted text.
