Windows Phone 8: How To Copy and Paste Text

Copying and pasting text on a Windows Phone 8 smartphone couldn’t be easier. Here’s how to do it.

First open the document, website or whatever you want to copy text from. I went with an article here on groovyPost.

Click where the text starts and then “pull” the markers until you’ve highlighted everything you need. Click the Copy symbol that appears.
