The simplest way to edit a file is to delete your existing data. If you just need
to delete a single character, you can use one of two keys:
Backspace: Deletes the character immediately to the left of the cursor
✓ Delete: Deletes the character immediately to the right of the cursor
If you need to delete large chunks of text, follow these steps:
1. Select the data you want to delete, using either the keyboard or the
mouse. (See the earlier section, “Selecting Data.”)
2. Press the Delete (or Backspace) key.
Office 2010 wipes away your data.
Cutting and Pasting (Moving) Data
Moving data in Office 2010 requires a two-step process: cut and paste. When
you cut data, you delete it but save a copy in a special area of the computer’s
memory known as the Clipboard. When you paste data to a new location, you
copy the data off the Clipboard and paste it in your file, as shown in Figure 2-4.
