Copy and paste

I realize this is probably a basic question but how do I copy and paste from my BB browser OR Opera Mini. I would like to know how to copy the address of the page I am on. And also how to select some information from that page to copy. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Copy and paste

Copy the page of the BB browser you are currently on by pressing Menu > scroll down to Page Address > Copy.

 

I don't know how that works on OM.

 

To copy text from the page you are on, press Menu and SELECT mode, and scroll to the beginning of your text to copy and use Shift + Scroll to highlight the text you want > Menu > Copy.

Re: Copy and paste

Thank you for that JSanders. I appreciate your answer. It worked flawlessly. Does anyone know about Opera Mini?

Re: Copy and paste

HI,

 

In Opera mini, to copy in a page address.

After selecting "enter address" scroll down to "insert symbol." after copying a URL from somewhere, press menu button and there is paste. I couldn't find a copy function in Operamini to go the other way. Like to paste an address to the BB browser.

Thanks,

Re: Copy and paste

I think you are misunderstanding. For example I want to be able to copy the address of the page I am on, go to another page, such as a forum and paste the link there.

In my mind that said there wasn't a copy function in Opera Mini.

Sorry Master,

No cookies for me Smiley Sad

JSanders ! that's the way a newbie would do !!!!

when I'm on the web page, I click the P letter.
=> it shows me the URL of the page. I select the copy button.
