First, decide which portion
of the text on a particular web page you WANT to copy.
Then, position your MOUSE
(cursor) on the upper left corner of the desired text.
CLICK and HOLD DOWN the
LEFT side of your mouse button... as you DRAG over, across,
and down the page...covering all the text, which you've decided
to copy. (KEEPING the left button depressed the entire time!)
This will result in that
portion of text becoming HIGHLIGHTED. Continue dragging (while
holding down the left side of your mouse button) until ALL
OF THE DESIRED TEXT has become HIGHLIGHTED. Now you can RELEASE
the mouse button. The text will remain highlighted.
Ready to copy:
WITHOUT YET CLICKING YOUR
MOUSE...place the cursor ANYWHERE on TOP of the highlighted
text...and then RIGHT CLICK the mouse. A drop-down menu will
then be displayed. Glide your cursor down the list, and LEFT-CLICK
on the word "COPY."
Your text has now been copied,
and will be stored by your computer's memory UNTIL you choose
to copy something else...or close that program...or turn off
your computer! :-)
Another way to copy:
Once the text is highlighted...go
up to the toolbar at the top of the page and click on the
word: EDIT. A menu will drop down. From that menu, you can
choose COPY...(CLICK on the word COPY)
Ready to paste:
NEXT...you need to create
a BRAND NEW word document in whatever word processing program
Click on the new document
at the location where you want the copied text to appear.
RIGHT-CLICK your mouse
at that location, and choose PASTE from the drop-down menu...
Another way to paste:
Go to the top of the page
and click on EDIT...and choose PASTE from that drop-down menu...(CLICK
on the word PASTE)
PRESTO! Your selected
and copied text will now MAGICALLY appear in a BRAND NEW WORD
DOCUMENT...MINUS the background colors, images, ads, etc.!
ONLY the parts that YOU SELECT will be copied into the new
