How to Copy and Paste in Apple

If you don’t have experience using a Mac, getting used to the interface can be a challenge. Apple’s Mac OS X operating system features a top menu bar, of which certain elements remain the same in all applications. The “Copy” and “Paste” functions, as well as the “Cut” function, are always accessible from the same location in every application or the same keyboard shortcut commands. Mac OS X also lets you copy and paste between applications.
