With people using Chromebooks, sometimes it can be a little difficult when trying to comprehend how the system works. This is because it does not work the same as other devices do at all. It is also something which comes equipped with its own nuances. This article will highlight how one can copy paste on the Chromebook. This is one of the most common actions done in any device, and it is also able to be replicated in a simple manner. Which is why it needs to be highlighted in simple terms here in this article. Make sure you follow the steps given below.
· One of the simplest methods which is followed even for standard devices is the method where you first click on control + C, then copy the text. And then Control + V the text and then paste it on the document. However remember that this is a method which is able to retain the same kind of formatting which the original document had in it. So this is something which you should employ when the formatting of both the documents needs to be the same. Even the edit and highlight etc. will be the same version as the previous one.
Another method which can be
used for this process is the one where you need to run your cursor over the
highlighted text, highlight it properly and then click on the cursor trackpad.
Once this is done, choose the option which says copy, and then go to the place

the copying and pasting of texts from various sources. One can look for a
number of options within the apps itself and pick the extension accordingly.
· The method by which you can take a screenshot on a chrome book is also rather simple. You have to click on the control, and then shift and then the windows button.
