Using the Cut, Copy, and Paste features

Often in word processing, you will need to transfer information from one document to another. Instead of having to retype or replace this information, Word allows you to move a block of text (a word, sentence, paragraph, page, document, or graphic). Cut, Copy, and Paste are helpful time-saving features. The Cut, Copy, and Paste buttons are located on the Standard toolbar.
