For now, let us learn THE most-used shortcuts for windows.
For all three shortcuts please press the CTRL key, I use the one in the lower left end of the keyboard. Go open a writing software you want, for this example we will use the notepad app.
Go ahead write something :D
Now that you typed out a sentence, press on the CTRL key (keep holding) and press the letter A, simultaneously. At this point, you should notice that the words you typed is selected (highlighted). This is the action of Select all, it selects any and all items on the window.
With all the words highlighted, lets try out the CUT command. Again, press-hold on the CTRL key and this time press the letter X together. All the words should disappear. Don't worry we will get it back now!
To get it aback columnist and authority the CTRL key afresh and this time columnist the letter V. The argument will be PASTED aback into the window.
So, in conclusion you have learnt:
The function CTRL + C, my favorite. It works exactly like the CUT function albeit quite differently.
Go ahead, try it yourself to understand it better.
You done? Now nothing seems to happen. But try pressing CTRL + V
Voila! The words/sentences is back, and now there are two of them!
This is basically similar to the CUT function only your original words/sentences are not gone.
These functions are not bound to word editors like Block or WordPad. These commands can be used in various applications in the Windows OS. (or most other OS) But we will return to that later.
A word about applying the Cut command with files, due to the way the Cut command interacts with files (photos, documents) it is advised (safer) to instead use the Copy command. Doing so will ensure that your original file is still there (not deleted) . It is a blemish in the way the Cut command works.
