There are some simple keyboard short cuts
that have been around for a while and work.

You may already know them some of us might
not. They were originally used in the Apple
Computer interface and have been held over
on the windows computer too.

After you select an item by clicking it
or clicking and dragging, then do
one of the following: Undo, Cut, Copy, Paste.

The actions are performed with the keyboard keys,
the lower left side and above the space bar.

The keys are Z X C V .

Use one of these keys with the Ctrl key.

Ctrl + C Copy
Ctrl + V Paste
Ctrl + X Delete
Ctrl + Z Undo

The Ctrl key is located in the lower left corner
of the keyboard.

Use the rolling press to make this work.

First press Ctrl with the little finger, left hand,
hold it down,
then press C key with middle finger, left hand.
Lift them. That's the Ctrl + C

You have copied what ever you had selected.

Next place your cursor somewhere where
you want to plaste or put what you just copied.

First press Ctrl with the little finger, left hand,
hold it down,
then press V key with index finger, left hand.
Lift them. That's the Ctrl + V

You have just pasted your selection.

If you don't want to keep it there,
before you type anything just UNDO it
by pressing Ctrl + Z.

Say you typed a sentence in error and just
want to get rid of it. Delete it by pressing
Ctrl + X.

Oops, you deleted the wrong one.
That's okay, press Ctrl + Z to UNDO.
