“What? Did I read that right?”
Yes, you did read it correctly and yes, we can copy text without actually completing a copy / paste.
I’m quite positive that you’re eager to know how, so I’m going to get right to the business end of this tip.
- You start by selecting the text to be copied.
- Hold down the Ctrl key.
- Drag the selected text to another location and release the mouse button.
A duplicate of the selected text in the location you chose without a single Ctrl + C, right-click or “Copy” button anywhere to be seen!
