Cutting and Copying to Windows Clipboard WINDOWS 8


To help you place a copy or to move a piece of text or an

object such as a picture to another location, Windows provides

a feature called the Clipboard. This is a holding area for text

and objects that you cut (remove) or copy from a document.

An item stays on the Clipboard for a time until you find a new

location in the document or in another document where you

want to paste it. If you cut or copy several items, the oldest

item will eventually be permanently deleted.
