You can use the Cut, Copy and Paste commands to move or copy data. For example, you might cut or copy a picture from a Word document and paste it elsewhere in the same Word document, in another Word document or in a PowerPoint slide or a Publisher file.

When you cut data, it is removed from its original location; when you copy data, Office makes a duplicate of the selected data, leaving it in its original location. In addition to using the Cut, Copy and Paste commands to move and copy data, you can also use drag and drop.
