Often, when you copy and paste text from one program to another, the formatting (fonts, styles, sizes, etc) is transferred as well. This is not always what you want, especially if the place you are copying to uses different fonts or text sizes than the place you are copying from. The solution is the "Paste Special" command, which is under the "Edit" menu of most programs. After cutting or copying some text, go to the program you want to paste into and choose this command. You will be presented with a list of possible formats to use when pasting the text. Choose the "Unformatted Text" option. When you do this, the text is pasted into the document using the document's formatting, and not the formatting of the copied text.

Here are some samples. You need to open word pad or the program you use to type your documents
