How to copy-paste text
using your mouse.
(keyboard instructions below)

 Use your mouse to put the cursor at the left of the very first letter or picture you want to copy.

Hold down the LEFT mouse button while you drag the mouse to the right. If the text you want covers more than one line, then also drag the mouse down to highlight all the lines of text you want.

Keep the LEFT mouse button held down while you carefully line up the cursor to the right of the last letter or punctuation mark you want to copy, then let up on the button.

You should now have a block of text highlighted.

Now move the mouse so the cursor is anywhere in the highlighted area and RIGHT-click ONCE to open the menu box.LEFT-click on the menu option "Copy".

You now have your text copied to the "clipboard" of windows and can paste it into any word processor document or email over and over, as many times as you want, until you "copy" something else.

To paste the text, just set the mouse cursor where you want the text to start by LEFT-clicking once, and then RIGHT-click ONCE to open the menu box again.

This time, LEFT-click on the option "Paste", and like magic, your text or graphic fills the area after the cursor.
