Right-Click to Copy and Move Documents

A file icon's right-click menu offers advanced copying and moving of files. You'll use the Windows Clipboard as the go-between for all Windows copy, cut, paste, and move operations. When you want to copy a file from one place to another, you can place a copy of the file on the Windows Clipboard. When you do, the file is on the Clipboard and out of your way, until you go to where you want the file copied. You'll then paste the file to the new location, in effect copying from the Clipboard to the new location. When you copy a file to another location, the file remains in its original location and a copy is made elsewhere.

Note

The Clipboard holds one item at a time. If you copy a document to the Clipboard, a subsequent copy overwrites the first copy.
