What is the Difference Between Cut and Copy?
1. Cut is when you remove the file, text, or graphic from its position and paste it in another location.This means that you have removed the file, text, image form the original location and you must paste it somewhere. I do not recommend a person new to computers using the CUT feature. To copy something is a much safer option.
2. Copy is when you copy the file, text, or image, and then place a copy of it in another location. This means that the original still exists.
If I do not paste the file,text, or image, will it be lost?
If you copy a file and then forget to paste it down somewhere, and then copy a new file, you will be carrying the new file and the old file copy will be gone. If you have just copied a file though, the original will still be in the original location.
If you cut a file and forget to paste it down, depending on what version of Windows you are using, your file will be returned to the original location or you will get a warning message. If you are on the older versions of Windows your file could possibly be lost. These things happen and this is why it is best to copy and not cut until you are experienced enough to know what is going on.
