    Default What is the difference between "cut" and "delete" on a word document?

    Do you know the difference?

    Cut is when you remove the selected area from a passage. This is like copying and pasting. Delete is when you remove a word completely.

    Should also point out that, if you cut, you can paste it back somewhere else in the document, i.e. to move a word or para.
    If you delete you can only recover it to where it sat before.

    Cut, puts the word or phrase in the Clipboard, so it can later be pasted somewhere else.
    Hence the term, "Cut & Paste".

    When you Delete something, it's put in the Recycle Bin, unless you hold down the left shift key, then it's sent to oblivion, never to be seen again.

    OK?
