Question: How can I copy text from a web page to Word and be able to enlarge it? I have done PRT/SCR and it gets it in Word but I cannot change sizes.
You want to do copy and past and you are not limited to just what is on the screen like when you do PRT/SCR and you will not get all the browser information.
In the browser click where the text you want to copy begins. Hold the shift key down and move the mouse over the area you want to copy and you can scroll down off the area showing on the screen.
Now you will copy the text. You can either press the CTRL and C keys together or click on Edit in the menu and choose Copy or right click on the text that is highlighted and choose Copy. You have just put the text on the clipboard in the computer memory
Now go to your word processor and click where you want the text to go.
Now you will paste the text. You can press the CTRL and V keys together or click on Edit in the menu and choose Paste or right click and choose Paste.
The text is now in your Word document and you can edit it or change the font or print it.
Thanks to Harry for this week's question.
