WORD PROVIDES A NUMBER of different methods with which you can copy and move text. Moving or copying text usually involves the Windows Clipboard, which temporarily holds text you place on it. You use the Clipboard feature to move or copy text from one place to another, thereby avoiding the need to retype it.
When you want to remove text from one place and put it into another location, you cut and paste the text. With Cut and Paste, Word deletes the selected text, holds it, and then places it into a new location. Just follow these steps:
Select to highlight the text you want to move.
Choose Home > Clipboard > Cut. The text disappears from the document, but Word stores it on the Windows Clipboard.
