operations process in a computer

Is it true that all high-level operations in a computer (say, copying, pasting, web surfing, running apps etc) are all finally converted to micro-operations (say, arithmetic, logical and shift) and then done?

Yes.

All high level operations will be be done with a large number of individual CPU instructions. That is the way all computers work.

Thank you for your reply.
I think any high-level operation will be converted to 0 and 1 codes by CPU, then they will be done by ALU within CPU. Then they will be stored in RAM or HDD and when a user wants to see the results, those 0 and 1 bits will be back converted to high-level items (images, writings, graphics etc) to be seen (and acceptable) by users/human beings. Is my thought right?

That is a rather primitive description but it is essentially true.

OK so far, and thanks.
Now where are those 0 and 1s stored? I know they are on HDD or RAM but what is the name a unit that stores a bit whether that bit is 1 or 0, please?
