Question How to cut,copy & paste

Help!! I am new to Computing and what I am after doing is:- Put a piece of writing from one site to another site without having to rewrite it al, Its a pretty long peice. I know its called cut,copy & paste but dont have a clue really, I need to go on a basic computer course I suppose but i would like to do this tonight if at all possible, I realise I must sound like a dumbo but I am new to this really, have been going on the net for a while now on my daughters computer, but now I have my own laptop so trying to do a bit more than just surfing the net. So any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. TA!!!!

Hold down your left mouse button and highlight the text to be copied

Right click on the text to be copied

select copy

go to the destination where you wish to paste and left click your cursor where you want the text

Right click and select paste

You could also as a typing shortcut, highlight the text by holding control+shift and move the arrow keys to the amount of text you want to copy, then Hold Control+C to copy, then Control+V to paste.

Then again, that's if your mostly typing etc.
