    If you do a copy of some text or ctrl-c, it ends up in the clipboard. Go to Start > Run and type in clipbrd and you can view the contents of the clipboard.

    You should 'select' (highlight) what you want to put on the "Clipboard." You do that by putting the curser at the beginning of the text and then hold down the "Shift" key while you use the right arrow key to 'select.' Then go to Edit>Copy and the selected text will be put on your Clipboard. It only stays there until you put a new item there, which erases the first. Also, the Clipboard is erased when you shutdown your C.

    To "paste" what is on the Clipboard to the place where you want it inserted, again put your curser at the spot, then go to Edit>Paste, and the text will be inserted.

    "Copy" can also be accomplished with the simultaneous depression of the keys Ctrl and C. Likewise, Paste is accomplished with Ctrl + V.
