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

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).
Do you select some text and then right-click to copy it 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.
Clipboard Manager – Remember Copied Items
Your Chromebook has a clipboard manager that can remember up to five recently copied items. You can access this using the following keyboard shortcut:
LAUNCHER + V.
Now select the item you want to paste and you are good to go.
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.
