Re: Control F /copy-paste/alt-tab/mouse right click

Judy...That ctl F works on any web page too....which when sifting through
things or looking for a name or something is a Godsend.

And while I know it seems obvious when you know it.....copy and pasting
information is a skill I have discovered everyone does not know. I use it
all the time...
I use a clipboard program which saves all your cut paste and copy items
until you delete them... but even when you don't do this...or if I am
collecting a lot of information about say an artist.....I open a word file
for that. Then you highlight the text....Control C ...alt-Tab [which
switches you between screens] Control V at the text doc and alt-Tab back
to where I was. On the Mac.. the keys are in the same (close anyway) place
but I forgot what they are called...

Right clicking on images allows choices and one is to save as. These are
all things I use all the time and sometimes take for granted others know. lia
