Left click your mouse. Hold the left click button down and drag your cursor across the text you want to copy. It will highlight blue. With the text highlighted, RIGHT click, choose copy.
Next place your cursor where you want the text to be placed. RIGHT click, choose paste.

Cut will be grayed out if you are copying from something that won't allow you to cut, like a webpage.
If you are cutting something from a document or an email that you are composing, you will be able to cut. Cut will remove the text, but it can be pasted somewhere else.

An alternative method, once you have the desired text highlighted (or selected), is to use the Edit menu near the top of your browser or office program.

Edit ==> Copy (If you want to only copy the text to another location and still keep the text where it is)

Edit ==> Cut (If you want to remove the text in question).

Move the cursor to where you want to put the text, then Edit ==> Paste

If you are pasting the text into a different document, use the Edit menu of the document you are moving the text from to use the Cut or Copy command, and use the Edit menu on the document you are pasting to to use the Paste command.

Another alternative method is to use key strokes. Sometimes this is necessary.

Ctrl + c is the copy command (That means to press down the Ctrl key and while it is down press the letter c. Same for the following substituting the alternate letters for c.)

Ctrl + x is the cut command

Ctrl + v is the paste command
