I am new to computers and find some of it ,is over my head,is there an easy way to cut and paste,and then transfer text from my computer to another web-site.
Another way is to select the text (highlight it), press the right mouse button, and a menu will pop up. Select 'copy' with the normal left button. Move to the other application and right click and select 'paste'.
Note that you can only copy text onto a webpage if there is an input window on the page, such as the message windows here.
