It's often useful to save text using the copy paste command in Windows. The example below shows highlighted text. When you click + drag your mouse across text it changes appearance. While text is still highlighted press the the keyboard keys Ctrl + C to copy.
By pressing the Ctrl + C keys over highlighted text as explained above, the text is then saved to memory on your computer. You will then need to find a word processing program or text file .txt to paste the text by using the Ctrl + V keys.
Generally you don't need to worry about finding the copied text since it's stored in your computer's memory and when you paste it Ctrl + V into something like MS Word or a text file, it will then instantly appear. This is a leap of faith for many users including myself that would rather see the copied text appear in some way even before using the paste command. There is a way to find the text you copied by locating the Windows clipbook clipbrd viewer. Finding The Windows Clipbook clipbrd is explained here.
Here's steps for copying text from a web page and pasting to a standard Windows text document:
1. Open Web page with text you want to highlight.
2. Highlight text and while still highlighted press Ctrl + C to copy
3. Right-click on any open area of your desktop and from the dialogue that appears choose "New" >> "Text Document".
4. Open the new text document you created and click inside the open document as if you were going to type something and press Ctrl + V to paste the text you copied.
