Copy & Paste Advice

This tip I came up with because I'd get myself in a small jam. I'd copy something to paste. Then I'd find out something else copied instead of what I thought. Or I realized I'd already placed it where I wanted it, etc. In other words, I didn't need it anymore.

What I'm trying to say is, occasionally (for me a lot) I copy something and then find I don't need to paste it after all. 

So what do you do with what you've copied? Because if you don't do anything, then the next time you go to copy and paste, that is what will come up. And you'll think: Oh, I forgot I'd copied that! Now what do I do?

Go down to you Start button in the far left hand bottom of your screen. Click on it. This is where your Programs and Files are. Notepad is there. I don't know about your computer, but you should have Notepad where it is accessible. 

So here's what you do. You open Notepad, and just paste what you have copied anywhere on there. Then when you go to leave Notepad, it will ask if you want to save it. No, you don't.

Now you've gotten rid of what you no longer wanted to paste. So the next time you copy something, that is what will paste instead of what you just dumped off on Notepad. Hope all this made sense. If it did not, email me. 

That's it!

  1. If I copy something I don't want I just delete it.
