google "copy and paste" for hundreds more links.

remember cut removes the file or selected text while copy duplicates it.

And if you are wanting to paste text from a webpage into a document or email, it won't work.
Cut removes the text. With a webpage, you can't remove it.
You have to use copy instead.

To add a tiny bit of confusion but worth remembering! Every once in awhile/rarely you will copy something from the net that will not paste well IE: it has extra junk/marks, when that happens paste it into word pad. Not sure why word pad cleans these odd balls up but it does, after that it can be moved to most any place you want.
