This time we’ll take a look at some basic commands in Google Docs: “Select all”, “Copy”, “Paste”, and “Delete” everything.
It’s really simple here. For example, from time to time, you need to select all the data in the document, delete it, or copy it and then paste it into another document or elsewhere, etc.

NB! The next method on how to select all the data in the document is performed via the shortcut. Basically, press Ctrl + A for Windows OS and Cmd + A for Mac OS. And here you go.
And after selecting all the data on the document, you can delete it, copy it, paste it, and cut it.
- You can do all these functions via the context menu, which we bring up with the right mouse click on the selected data. And here you have the “Copy”, “Paste”, and “Delete” commands
NB! To delete the selected data, you basically need “Backspace” or “Delete” on the keyboard.
NB! To copy the data, press Ctrl + C for Windows OS and Cmd + C for Mac OS.
NB! To paste the data, press Ctrl + V for Windows OS and Cmd + V for Mac OS.
NB! And to cut the data, press Ctrl + X for Windows OS and Cmd + X for Mac OS.
NB! And be aware that these actions are applied to all the content in the document, and not just the text, but images, tables, and all other types of data.
NB! In this tutorial, we work with the whole document (all the data in the document) and implement all the actions above for it. And you can also select a particular part or some particular parts of the content and implement the functions mentioned above for it/them.
We hope this tutorial will help you learn how to select all the data, copy, paste, and delete in Google Docs. Good luck!
