new location, along with a Paste Options button. Note that Word also included a space
before the word, so that the end of the sentence reads “and water again thoroughly.” The
Paste Options button that appeared in the previous set of steps (when you dragged text to

Peter mentions that he’ll be using the paragraph on mulch and the paragraph on
watering for the FAQ he plans to write on flowering shrubs. He asks you to copy that
information and paste it in a new document that he can use as the basis for the new FAQ.

Clipboard task pane.
To copy and paste text:
1. Click Edit on the menu bar, and then click Office Clipboard . The Clipboard task pane
opens on the right side of the Document window. It contains the word “thoroughly,” which
you copied to the Clipboard in the last set of steps. See Figure 2-13.
