Copying and pasting is a basic computer command that all computers, be they Mac or PC, possess. When you copy an item on your computer, it is saved temporarily to the clipboard, where it will stay until you copy another item or restart your computer. Keyboard art--the art created from keyboard symbols--can easily be copied and pasted into e-mails, forums or other text documents.
