Simplify Copy And Paste Operations In Windows XP.

Copying and pasting in Windows XP is simple enough—but how would you like to make it even easier? Teach some old keys new tricks and simplify the copy and paste process in both Professional and Home versions.

Do you spend a lot of time on your Windows XP machine researching IT-related topics on the Internet? If so, chances are that you probably spend time copying text from interesting Web sites and then pasting that text into word processing documents for later reference. That's four separate keyboard strokes—[Ctrl]C to copy and [Ctrl]V to paste—each time you want to save snippets of text. Wouldn't it be nice if you could reduce each operation to a single keystroke? Well, you can!

If you have a Microsoft keyboard that provides a special set of buttons across the top, you can use the IntelliType software to reassign any of the special buttons to perform the copy and paste operations.

Here's how.

  1. Download and install the most current version of the IntelliType software for your keyboard from the Microsoft Hardware site. (This step is optional because the IntelliType software you have installed will allow you to reassign the special buttons.)
  2. Access the Control Panel and double-click the Keyboard icon to display the Keyboard Properties dialog box.
  3. Select the Key Settings tab, choose a key in the list, and click the Edit button to launch the Reassign A Key wizard.
  4. Select the Choose From A List Of Commands option button in the Custom section and click Next.
  5. In the Select A Command From The List scrolling list box, select the Copy command and click Finish.
  6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 and assign another key to the Paste command.
  7. When you return to the Keyboard Properties dialog box, click OK.
Now, anytime you want to perform a copy or paste operation, all you have to do is press the buttons that you reassigned. Likewise for a paste-only operation.
