Hour 2. Entering Text and Moving Around > Cutting, Copying, and Pasting Text

Cutting, Copying, and Pasting Text

The capability to move and copy text from one place to another is one of the most appreciated features of word processing programs. The term cutting and pasting actually refers to both moving and copying text. When you move text, you remove (cut) it from one location in your document and paste it in another. When you copy text, you leave the text in its original location and paste a duplicate of it somewhere else.

The location that contains the text you want to move or copy is called the source, and the place you want to paste it is called the destination. The destination can be in the same document, another Word document, another Office document (such as an Excel spreadsheet or a PowerPoint presentation), or a document created in another Windows application.
