If you have downloaded jQuery code and you are trying to figure out how to copy and paste within the code, you must first copy and paste the jQuery code into a new HTML page for your website or blog. JQuery is a Java Script coding program for websites. If you know shorthand keys for copying and pasting on your Windows or Macintosh computer, then you can copy and paste within jQuery code. Memorise the shortcut keys, also known as "hotkeys," so that you can quickly copy and paste code and formulas into jQuery code.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open a new HTML page. Highlight the jQuery code from jQuery's official tutorial called "How jQuery Works." See Resources for a link. Press "Control" and "C" on a Windows computer and "Command" and "C" on a Macintosh computer.

  2. 2

    Open an HTML test page. This could be a test page on your official website or blog. You also could use a free test page online. Paste your jQuery code into this test page by pressing "Control" and "V" on a Windows computer and "Command" and "V" on a Macintosh computer.

  3. 3

    Highlight the text that you would like to copy into your jQuery HTML page.

  4. 4

    Press your "Control" button and the letter "C" if you use a Windows computer. Press down your "Command" button and the letter "C" if you use a Macintosh computer. The jQuery starter code will appear on your test HTML page.

  5. 5

    Open the word processing document, blog or website page where you have your HTML code saved. You also can open up more code from jQuery by downloading the latest versions of code listed on jQuery's official website.

  6. 6

    Highlight the code and copy it using the Control/Command shortcut keys. Paste the code within the jQuery code you already have copied and pasted into the HTML page. You can modify the jQuery code by clicking your cursor within the code and pressing the "Delete" button or using your keyboard buttons to add code.
