Let's learn how to Copy and Paste using the mouse!
It's really quite simple and can be done in 4 steps:

  1. Highlight the text you wish to copy: Click down once, with your cursor on one side of the text you want to copy, with your left mouse button. Hold the mouse button down. Then drag your mouse pointer over the text until all of the text you wish to copy is colored differently than the rest of the text on the page. Now let go of the mouse button. If you have highlighted correctly, the text should stay colored differently.

  2. Click on Copy: While your text is highlighted, place you mouse over the highlighted text, use the right click mouse button and choose Copy.

  3. Place your cursor: Decide where you want the new text to go on your document and click once where you want the new text to be inserted. The cursor should flash.

  4. Click on Paste: Once the cursor is flashing, using your right click mouse button, right click on the area where you want to place the text and choose Paste.

Let's give it a try!
