Copy and Paste (Mobile)

Copy and Paste (Mobile)

PostPosted by Cleoriff » Tue Aug 09, 2016 11:23 am

Ok here goes...I need a comprehensive, in depth tutorial.....Sorry but there you go.....
I can copy and paste anything on my Windows PC....

When it comes to using my mobile or tablet I can't. End Of....
(You lot are always using mobiles to copy and paste stuff) :legend :legend

If I use another forum as an example. If I want to copy and paste ...I use the highlight box which brings up the exact section...easy to c&p
When I use my mobile ...only half the title is shown to c&p. I press my finger on it....usually only highlights ONE word to copy!!!

I will never be experienced at doing this...but it annoys me intensely that I can't damn well do it...ever...

Basically if my PC stopped working...I would be finished. I couldn't post a picture or a link or any damn thing...

Just remember, if you are going to teach me...it really has to be a dumbo guide.... :idk
That's all.... :lmao :lmao

When you highlight one word there is a little square box at the top which is to select all.
I'm leaving now to go find myself....if I arrive before I get back, please ask me to wait!
