I did just see the control c and control v comments on another related post. It works. Thank you.
Oh thank you! I thought they'd turned off the right click so have been having to type out information I've found. This will help lots

Nice question Eileen yes Thank you!

I was thinking it was just me and/or my computer all this time frown !

If you click your CTRL button then the right click feature of your mouse is enabled and you can cut/copy/paste with your mouse.  These standalone functions also work:

CTRL + X = cut
CTRL + C = copy
CTRL + V = paste

On a Mac, highlight what you want.  Depress "Command" and then "c" for Copy, then click on where you want to paste it and depress "Command" and "v" for Paste (maybe the v is just easier to reach than the p).

And you can add a link by clicking on the little icon about 2/3 of the way to the right-hand side that looks like a mountain range and a sun.

Correction:  SJ Baty is right.  Use the icon that looks like a strange sideways paper clip (or a link from a chain!), not the one that looks like mountains and a sun.

I think you mean the paperclip.  The sun and the mountains are for images cheeky

Don't forget the edit button cheeky

You can post, look at it, don't like it, hit edit and change it.  I think for the first 5 mins it won't show that it was edited.

I knew that.

That "strange sideways paperclip" is a link from a chain. cheeky(That's why it designates a link.)

Thank you.
hahaha - of course, a chain link.  Even with my glasses on it looks like a smashed donut.

There is also an unlink option, right beside it.

Oh!  You mean the dimmed one (that is usually dimmed)?  

By the way, you don't need to use the link icon.  You can paste the link right into your text.  That works fine for me.

The link icon is really helpful when texting a link, thusly: WikiFree Memes for use on G2G.

I've wondered where all that stuff came from!

You can also link an image (as I did for all the Wizards of Aus hats during signups for the Connect-a-thon), thusly:

Click for full size.

All this I've been doing has been by way of Ctrl V
