I have a great topic for one of your classes!

The differences between windows computers and chromebooks.

The first case I encountered was trying to copy and paste on my new chrombook.

I tried highlighting the text, right clicking on it and then looking for an opportunity to click on “paste”

After highlighting I was stuck.  It could not be done the same way.

Made a lot of calls.  HP was little help.  Google told me I have to use “control c” and “control v” to copy and paste!

Who would have known?  They also told me I could do a two finger tap after selection and two two finger taps where I have clicked to paste.  I found that worked some, but not all of the time.

Appreciate your help.

I have also discovered that you can hold down the Alt key as you click the mouse to do the same as a right-click. Try it and let me know.
