How to copy and paste on a Chromebook

One of the simplest ways to copy and paste on a Chromebook  especially if you're coming from a Mac background  is to use keyboard shortcuts. But there are other methods as well, in case you need them. Here are a few keyboard shortcuts you'll find useful:

  • Press and hold the control button (which is generally located in the left corner of your keyboard) and press "C" to copy or "V" to paste.
  • Press and hold "CTRL," as well as the shift key (typically located just above the control key) and press "V" to paste  this will paste text without any formatting.
  • You can also press control and the "A" key to highlight all of the text on a page, then use the first command listed here to copy all that text.

If you prefer, you can also use the right-click feature to copy and paste on a Chromebook. Here's how:

1. Highlight the text you want to copy or paste over.
