Cut, Copy, and Paste Data
You can use the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands to move or copy data. For example, you might
cut or copy text or a picture from a Word document and paste it elsewhere in the same Word
document, in another Word document, or in a PowerPoint slide or a Publisher file.
When you cut data, it is removed from its original location; when you copy data, the selected data
is duplicated, leaving it in its original location. You can move or copy data using two methods:
drag-and-drop or buttons on the Ribbon. This section uses Word to drag-and-drop, and Excel to
demonstrate Ribbon buttons.
