5.5.4: Cut/ Copy/ Paste

  • Page ID


    One of the most common operations for users is cut, copy, or pasting files & folders. Pasting a file inserts the new file into the new location. Selecting “Cut” to a file will remove it from its current location and paste the file to its new location. The “Copy” command creates a replica of an original file and pastes the file in the selected location. To copy a file, select the file you want to copy and click Copy under the Home tab. In addition, you can copy or move a file without leaving your current location. Under the Home tab within the Organize group, click ‘Copy to’ or ‘Move to’ button, and choose the location if it’s listed, or click the Choose Location button and select the location.
