Select Copy PasteI did some research and it looks to me like some of the computer beginners can’t even Copy and Paste or Cut and Paste with their Mouse or their Keyboard. Well, I decided to put this little Article or Tutorial for them. This procedure is very easy so don’t worry, you’ll be able to Copy and Paste, and Cut and Paste as soon as you are done reading this little helpful article. Also, I wanted to warn you that on many internet pages you won’t be able to either copy, cut, or even select anything at all, because some website owners don’t want you to copy their work.

Usually you click the Left Mouse Button with your Pointing Index Finger, and the Right Mouse Button you click with your Middle Finger. So, when people tell you to Click or Double-Click, then they want you to use your Pointing Index Finger to Click or Double-Click the Left Mouse Button. But, when people tell you to Right-Click, then they want you to use your Middle Finger to Click on a right button of the mouse.
