Copying a File
Windows makes it easy to copy files from one folder to another and from one disk to another. You might copy files to create a backup copy or to revise one copy while keeping the original file intact. Like moving, copying a file works just like copying text: You first copy the file, and then you paste it to its additional location.
Right-click the file(s) you want to copy and click Copy.
Navigate to the folder where you want to place the copy.
Right-click a blank area of the window and click Paste.
The file is copied to the new location.
