Cut, copy, paste and undo – these are four of the most powerful and commonly used commands in any application. When you type, these are shortcuts you need to know, both to save time and to correct errors.
First of all, an important note: most keyboards support the Ctrl / Control hot keys that Windows uses. However, there are some exceptions. For example, the Apple keyboard uses the Command key instead of Ctrl. You may need to change the shortcut keys in the settings or get used to a slightly different layout if your keyboard is a strange man.
For a few other important shortcuts here are some great suggestions for Windows and MacOS.  Cut (Ctrl + X)
This cut shortcut has no alternative input ( Shift + Delete was once a thing, but is now used for other commands ). Note that when cutting text, that text is deleted at the target location, but you can paste it several times into other areas, because a version of that text remains on your clipboard. This is a great way to rearrange text in a report or extract information from one area and fill multiple forms with the same data.
Remember that Windows does not automatically save a history of items on your clipboard. If you cut text and then cut a second piece of text, the first content is lost. That is, unless you use one of the newest versions of Windows. The often delayed update of October 2018 introduced an extensive clipboard with history, so you can go back and paste something that was replaced on the immediate clipboard long ago.
