How do I copy and paste a file on Windows?

To copy and paste a file on Windows, follow the steps outlined below:

1. Open the destination folder for the file you wish to paste. This is where you want to relocate the file or folder. You can use the File Explorer icon on your desktop, or press the Windows Key + E shortcut to open it.

2. Go to the folder that contains the file you wish to copy. You can find this in your File Explorer.

3. Right-click on the file you wish to copy and select “Copy” from the menu that pops up.

4. Now navigate to the destination folder where you wish to paste the file.

5. Right-click in an empty area of the folder and select “Paste” from the menu that pops up.

6. The file will now appear in the destination folder.

You can also copy and paste multiple files simultaneously by following the same steps above but including shift-clicking or control-clicking when selecting the files to copy.

If you are running Windows 7 or newer, you can also use the new drag-and-drop feature. To do this, simply click and hold on the file or folder you wish to copy and drag it to the desired location. Once you’ve reached the correct folder, release your mouse button to copy the file.

Alternatively, if you are familiar with command prompts, you can use the command line to move or copy files. To do this, open a command prompt by going to the Start menu, typing ‘cmd’ into the search box and then pressing Enter.

Once you are in the command prompt, you can type the command “copy” followed by the file name and its path to copy the file. For example, if you wanted to copy the file “example.txt” from the folder “C:\My Documents”, you would type “copy C:\My Documents\example.txt” and then press Enter.

Similarly, you can use the “move” command to move files instead of copying them.

Using the above methods, you should be able to easily and quickly copy and paste files on Windows.
