How to Cut, Copy, and Paste on Your Android Tablet

Although it may take some getting used to, you can do all the word processing on an Android tablet as you can on a regular computer. Selected text is primed for cutting or copying. After you select the text, choose the proper command from the Contextual action bar. To copy the text, choose the Copy command. To cut the text, choose Cut.

Just like on a computer, cut or copied text on an Android tablet is stored on a clipboard. To paste any previously cut or copied text, move the cursor to the spot where you want the text pasted.

  • A quick way to paste text is to look for the Paste command button above the cursor tab. To see that button, touch anywhere in the text. Touch the Paste command button to paste in the text.

  • Some tablets feature a Clipboard app, which lets you peruse, review, and select previously cut or copied text or images. You might even find the Clipboard button on the action bar or onscreen keyboard.

  • You can paste text only into locations where text is allowed. Odds are good that if you see the onscreen keyboard, you can paste text.
