Sometimes you need to copy something in a window to save it in a file, such as something you might want to quote. If you're new to Macs, you may not know how easy it is to copy and paste text from one window to another, or from one file to another. There are two ways you can copy and paste; both are perfectly acceptable. The first way is with using the keyboard and the second is using the mouse pointer.

1. Copying and Pasting with the Mouse Method

Using this method, you'll be able to copy text that you highlight with your mouse and use what is called the "right-clicking" with the mouse. The mouse usually has only one button, but to "right click" you press the command key and the mouse simultaneously to create a right click, similar to the right click on a Windows computer.
