Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, I am going to show you how to copy and move text and graphics in Microsoft Word 2010, using the clipboard. The first thing we need to do is open the Office clipboard. To do that, we are going to press Alt H, together, and then f, and o.

    This is very usual because it shows you what you've copied and pasted in the past.
    So perhaps you copied something several moments ago, or several steps ago. Maybe you know if you simply paste, you open only paste. If you clip the paste option, you can only paste what you last pasted. What was last copied or cut. This helps you to see what you cut or copied 4-5 steps before. So, if we select, this lovely spatula, for example, we want to cut it, cut out the picture. You can use control and X, the hot key commands, control X.

    So it hasn't just been cut forever, and if you are not using the clipboard, you will not be able to select that spatula because when I select this spatula, and I'm going to copy this spatula using control C.

    Without the clipboard, I would not be able to select that spatula to paste it again.
    So if you have the clipboard, this is a way of seeing what you've cut, and reclaiming and reusing what you have done previously throughout your period of work. So now, for example, if I want to paste this spatula back into the picture, I click on it.

    So, using the clipboard is very useful because it allows you to keep track of what you've cut and pasted, and cut and copied.
    It allows you to go back and reuse things that you would not be able to do if you weren't using the clipboard. OK? And here we have options, this shows you some other options.

    So, you can show Office clipboard automatically so it is with you if you are copying and pasting a lot.
    It's useful to have it with you all of the time. You could also activate it easier and in a more simple way than the actual original command which is Alt H. And then pressing f and o. You can do that if you choose. And there are some other options to keep the Office clipboard icon on your taskbar.
