The “Paste” Short Cut


Freshly returned from the vicious wilderness of Wisconsin, I have found amongst the ferocious beasts a new Keyboard short cut to make your life a little easier.  There is no place we will not go, no rock left unsettled, no height we will not scale to bring you the best productivity tips. Well…that may be a bit of a stretch, but, we really do wish to brighten your days and improve you computing experience.
On to today’s short cut.

Last week we demonstrated how you can copy content with the “Copy” Short Cut. This week let’s go the next step and discover how to paste what you have copied. Guess what we at CSI Onsite call this short cut…you guessed it is the “Paste” Short Cut.

If you are in a situation where you have content that you want to transfer from one file to another or perhaps move said content to a different location within the same document, this short cut is the way to go. Once you have copied the content you wish to paste you can now use the short cut.

How to use the Short Cut

First make sure you have placed the cursor where you wish the content to be pasted. Once this is done then you will need to push and hold down the “Ctrl” key, then push down, once, the “V” key.  This will paste your copied information. Now you may wish to paste it more than one time, no problem. Each time you press the “V” key(while holding down the “Ctrl” key)  what you have copied will be pasted.

There you go, an easy way to paste text, photos, even certain types of files to a selected location.  If you have a moment give this a shot and let us know how it worked out for you.

Tune in next week for another simple, easy to use productivity tip from CSI Onsite.
