Using Cut, Copy and Paste

Cut, copy and paste can be used in Windows and almost any program you have installed. You can copy or cut text, graphics and other information from one location or program and paste the information somewhere else. When you copy or cut a selection it is placed on the “Windows Clipboard”

The Windows clipboard is a temporary location that holds the information that you copy or cut. This can be text, images, folders, files etc. The information saved on the clipboard will remain there until you paste it somewhere else, copy or cut something else and replaced what is currently held on the clipboard or until you shut down or restart your computer.

In Windows XP you can view the contents of the Windows clipboard by opening the clipboard viewer. Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 do not come with the clipboard viewer. You must use a third party utility to view the contents of the clipboard in Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.

1) Click start > my computer.
2) Browse to C:\Windows\System32.
3) In the System32 folder find “clipbrd or clipbrd.exe”.
