Not every computer uses the same operating system and it’s a bit difficult to do things on a different machine that you’ve been using before. Since Windows is the most popular operating system among users and that is why many people don’t know how to do things with other new operating systems. In this article, we will deal with a problem with Chromebook And let users know how to make a specific copy-and-paste task on their new Chromebook.
Copying and pasting is one of the most demanding work that everyone does whether for work or while exploring the Internet. If you are new to Chromebook OS, here is a guide on how to copy and paste on Chromebook.
How to copy and paste on a Chromebook?
To perform the copy and paste task on Chromebook, there are two simple ways to use them.
One of the simplest ways is to use keyboard shortcuts. To do this through the keyboard, it is very simple, as in the Windows operating system. You just need to select a specific text or URL and it can be copied by pressing CTRL + C on your keyboard and it can be pasted using the CTRL + V command.
In some versions of Chromebook, this may not work, and in order to copy and paste in such versions you need to press CTRL + Shift + C to copy and CTRL + Shift + V to paste. Note: This will paste the copied content in a normal format without copying the old format.
The second method is to do it with the right-click button. Here are the instructions on how to copy and paste on a Chromebook with a mouse.
Select the selected text by pressing the left key of the mouse and dragging it to the desired text. Once you have dragged all the content to copy, release the mouse key and right-click on the selected content. Instead of using right-clicking, you can also double-click on your laptop’s trackpad and select Copy and paste into the selected workbook.
If you want to copy or paste an image or video from one web page to another on the Internet, you can right-click on the image, select Copy image title and paste it wherever you want. Also, you can select the Save image as an option to store the image on local storage.
