Copy/Paste Shortcuts in Google Docs

Trying to copy and paste text to or from a Google application is not difficult at all.  It is very much like copying and pasting in an Office document.  You may find, however, that you run into a bit of a snag in one situation.  If you are trying to copy and paste using the mouse and right click –> Copy or right click –> Paste, you may see this screen pop-up:

You can correct this by installing the Google Drive app.  An easier option is to use the keyboard shortcuts for copying and pasting.

On a Windows PC, use CTRL + X to cut, CTRL + C to copy, and CTRL + V to paste

If you are a Mac user, use Command + X to cut, Command + C to copy, and Command + V to paste.
