    Copy/paste


    Hello all I am a new person to windows 8.1 I have been a Mac OS X user that has left Mac for a Windows machine, I have come a cross one minor thing that I would like to ask if there is a solution for.

    I do a LOT of copy/past and on my Mac O X 10.9 Machine when I did a highlight at the end when I would release the button the "popup menu" would come u with my options copy/cut so forth but I see on my windows machine that does not happen is there a am option I can turn on for this or am I SOL for that little feature.


    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks David, I know how to copy/paste it is just that I am used to a "popup" automatically opening when I release the button after a highlight like you did on the video, not having to "right" click to get the "popup". Thanks for the response though.

    Windows is different than a MAC.

    edit--- I really don't think that option is available in Windows.

    There is a lot software, that could help you auto-copy, like: Download Clipboard

    Randomly picked up, this one seems to do, what you might like: AutoClipX
