You should try > copy < if you chose cut it will, like the term implies > cut the item.. it will be gone so there's nothing to copy .
Simple way to do it : right click on picture , from drop down list choose > copy < open doc/page whatever , if you use wordpad, there's a " paste " option in the top left corner .. click on Paste and it's done & remember to save the document .
Another way to copy & paste is, click on copy and @ destination press < ctrl & v > at the same time , same result as above .
Sometimes for quick reference it's easier to take a screenshot , press the Windows ( between ctrl & Alt) and PrtSc keys at the same time.. and you will have an image of the whole screen , ready to edit ,cut etc. located in your Pictures folder .
Some photos/images you can save direct from the webpage , no need to copy & paste , just right click on item and "save image as" and you will find it in your downloads folder
Hope this helps..
