Let's talk about copying and pasting. So what I can do is I can take any file, any folder, any picture, any anything, and I can copy it. There's a couple of ways to do that. The first is I can right click on it and I can go copy. That copies it. The other option is my keyboard shortcuts, control C on your keyboard. Hold down the control key and C at the same time and that's also copy. Now I go to wherever I wanna put that file and now I wanna paste it.
So I wanna stick it there. So, couple of options for that too. First one is to right click on the white space and click paste. You can also right click on a folder and paste and it'll paste right into that folder for me. So there's two options there. Right click, paste. The other option is control V on your keyboard. Hold down the control key and V and it will paste. When you're moving files around you can paste them multiple times once you've copied it.
You can select more than one thing at a time. What I want you to be careful of here is that you don't select too much at the same time. Selecting your whole documents folder is probably not a good idea. If it runs into trouble, you can lose information. Be careful of what you do. Do a few at a time. Control C and then paste them a few at a time, control V. Remember to go back and delete the original too because copy leaves the original intact.
I've got merge labels here and merge labels here so I'm gonna delete that one. Hit delete on my keyboard and it's gone. That's copy and paste.
