How to Copy and Paste on a Chromebook

Copy-pasting is a basic action on any computer. In this article, I will show you how to copy-paste using Chrome OS.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Your usual keyboard shortcuts work on a Chromebook too.

  • Use CTRL + C to copy.
  • Use CTRL + V to paste.
  • Use CTRL + SHIFT + V to paste without formatting (plain text).

Using Mouse/Trackpad

Do you select some text and then right-click to copy on your PC or Mac? You can do this on your Chromebook too.

To right-click, tap the trackpad using two fingers. Now choose copy or paste to complete your action.

Copy-pasting images

You can take screenshots on your Chromebook and directly paste them into your email, online documents or WhatsApp, etc. You don’t need any additional apps or extensions to do that.
