How to copy and paste on Mac?

Here’s how to copy and paste on your Mac:

To copy:

  1. Select the content: Use your mouse or trackpad to highlight the text, image, or file you want to copy.
  2. Use the keyboard shortcut: Press Command (⌘) + C. Alternatively, you can click on Edit in the menu bar and then choose Copy.

To paste:

  1. Click the location: Navigate to where you want to paste the copied content.
  2. Use the keyboard shortcut: Press Command (⌘) + V. Alternatively, you can click on Edit in the menu bar and then choose Paste.

Additional options:

  • Cut: If you want to remove the content from its original location while copying it, use Command (⌘) + X instead of Command (⌘) + C.
  • Paste and Match Style: If you want to paste the content while adopting the formatting of the destination (e.g., font style, size), use Option + Shift + Command (⌘) + V or choose Edit > Paste and Match Style.

Remember, these are just the basic methods. You can also use right-click menus and trackpad gestures for additional options depending on the application you’re using.
