  1. I am just beginning with a computer. Where is the best place to start learning how to do things? Copy and Paste is one thing I need to learn to do.

  2. John,

    Perhaps you can look in your area to see if there are classes offered at one of the local schools in the evening.

    To copy and paste, simply highlight what you would like to copy by dragging your cursor over it or triple clicking on it and typing CTRL + C. To paste, simply click in your document where you would like the copied text to appear and type CTRL + V.

    I hope this has been helpful to you. Good luck with your learning and please feel free to ask questions!
