Keyboard shortcuts to Copy, Cut and Paste in Word

Instead of using the mouse to point and click at the edit menu and choose “copy”, “cut”, or “paste” you can use the keyboard for swift editing.

While holing down the Ctrl key press:

“C” to Copy

“X” to Cut

“V” to Paste

For Example:

To move a word select the word then press Ctrl and X to cut the word out.

Using the mouse click on the new position and press Ctrl and V to paste the word.

These keyboard shortcuts should work in ANY windows application not just Word.
