  7. 7
    Tap the name of the contact or the profile photo.
    Once the profile of the contact has opened up, make sure that the "chat" section is shown. Sometimes, it is required to copy and paste something that a person has said. Perhaps it is something important or work-related; it may have a quotation, news, or just a big message. Whatever it may be, quite often it is needed to copy and paste the information. This information can be pasted into many different applications. It can be pasted into a Microsoft Office document, into an e-mail message. In other words, into a diversity of applications. In this example, there are only short messages in the opened chat, but a clear idea of how copying and pasting text can be done is given.

    Note the universal paste sign on the screen.
    The icon has a black clipboard and a white piece of paper inside of a black circle. Wherever the paste icon can be seen (in an e-mail message, in an application, in a message, or in a Microsoft Office document), it can be used to paste text at the current cursor location. If something is cut or copied, the paste icon will appear that will allow pasting the copied information into a particular section.
