How to Copy and Paste in Windows 10
You can copy and paste text, files, and folders in Windows 10 using keyboard shortcuts, right-clicking with your mouse, or using the Windows Clipboard. Here are three ways to copy and paste on a Windows 10 PC:
How to Copy and Paste in Windows 10 Using Keyboard Shortcuts
To copy and paste in Windows 10 using keyboard shortcuts, first select the item you want to copy. Then press Ctrl + C on your keyboard to copy. Next, open the destination program or file path and press Ctrl + V on your keyboard to paste.
- Select the item you want to copy. You can press the Shift key while using the arrow keys to select multiple files or chunks of text.
- Press Ctrl + C on your keyboard. You have to press these keys at the same time. You won’t see any kind of notification that your text or files have been copied to the Clipboard.
- Go to the destination where you want to paste the item. This could be another program, where you can paste text or image (like Microsoft Word). For files and folders, use File Explorer to navigate to your destination path.
- Press Ctrl + V on your keyboard. This will paste the copied image or text. For text, it will include the original formatting from the source.
Note: If you don’t want to keep the formatting of your text when you paste it, you can press the Ctrl + Shift + V keys. This will cause your pasted text to take on the formatting of the text around it, or the standard formatting of the document.
For files or folders, Windows will instantly paste small files. For large file sizes, you will see a progress bar. It will disappear once Windows is done copying the folder. If you are copying files in the same file destination, Windows will append the file name with “ – Copy.”

How to Copy and Paste in Windows 10 Using a Mouse
To copy and paste in Windows 10 using your mouse, select an item and right-click on it. Next, select Copy from the pop-up menu, then go to your destination file or folder path. Right-click again and choose Paste for files or folders or any of the three paste formatting options for text or images.
- Select the item(s) you want to copy.
- Right-click with your mouse.
- Choose Copy from the menu.
- Go to the destination where you would like to paste the item. This could be another program where you can paste text or images, like Microsoft Word. For files and folders, use File Explorer to navigate to your destination path.
- Position your cursor to where you would like to paste the item. If you are pasting files and folders, you can right-click anywhere in the main box of the File Explorer.
- Right-click with your mouse.
- Choose Paste or your preferred Paste option. For text, you can keep the source formatting, merge the formatting, or keep it in plain text only. For images, you can keep the source formatting or simply paste the picture.
If you want to copy and paste files or folders, Windows will instantly paste items with small file sizes. For folders with big file sizes, you will see a progress bar at the top. It will disappear once Windows is done pasting the contents of the folder. If you are pasting files with the same name, Windows will add “ – Copy” to the end of the new file name.
How to Copy and Paste in Windows 10 Using the Clipboard
To copy and paste in Windows 10 using the Clipboard, turn on Clipboard history first. Press the Windows key + V and click Turn on. Select the text or image you want to copy, then bring up the Clipboard using the shortcut. Click on the text you want to copy from the Clipboard, then paste it to your destination file or program.
- Select what you want to copy and press Ctrl + C on your keyboard. You can also use your mouse to copy with the previous method.
- Press the Windows key + V on your keyboard.
- Click on the Turn on button. This will enable Clipboard history, letting you see the last 24 items you copied on the Clipboard.
- Select the text or image you want to copy. Double-click to select a word, triple-click to select a whole paragraph, or use Ctrl + Shift with the arrow keys to make a selection. For images on Office programs, click on the image until you see the white picture-formatting buttons.
- Press the Windows key + V on your keyboard.
- Choose what you would like to copy. Windows 10 arranges several of your recently copied items in blocks, with the most recent items at the top and older ones at the bottom. You can also choose to pin an item to the Clipboard, so you can paste it later.
- Go to your destination folder or program.
- Position your cursor to where you would like to paste the item.
- Finally, press Ctrl + V shortcut or right-click with your mouse then choose your preferred paste formatting option.
