Windows 7: Strg+X = Strg+C

Strg+X = Strg+C

Hey there,

topic title describes it good Currently always when I'm pressing ctlr+X, it shortly displayes as it should (little bit transparent ... you know, what I mean), but than, it goes back to display it without transparency and when I press Strg+V somewhere, it gets copied and does not get transfered

When I do it by using rightclick, it's the same prob
Win7 x64 Pro...

Thanks so far!

Control+X = Cut
Control+C = Copy

When you "Cut" something, the file will become transparent until it is "pasted" somewhere ONCE. After that ONE paste, it will no longer be "Cut", therefore you wont be able to "paste" it anywhere else.

However, if you "Copy" the file, you can "paste" it as many times as you'd like.

That is not entirely correct. The file, or what ever you are copying, remains and can be pasted as many times as you wish until it is overwritten by other data. This is the same whether or not the original is cut (Ctrl+X) or copied (Ctrl+C) from its original location.

I guess I am confused as to exactly whats going on.

SO you can CUT something, the icon becomes "transparent" (yes, I do understand what you mean), but then you CANT paste it?

?

All I was saying is if you cut it, you can only paste it once (if you want to paste it again you'd have to cut it again).

If you copy it you do NOT have to re-copy over and over.

Cut/Paste and Copy/Paste work in a virtually identical way. The data to be pasted is first copied to a scratchpad - this same data can be pasted over and over again until it is replaced by new data. The difference between Cut and Copy is that Cut removes the data from its original location, whereas Copy leaves it in its original location.

First, just to clarify: STRG = Steuerung, German for Control = CTRL.

CTRL + X cuts the chosen text or object, CTRL + V pastes it to cursors location, or to active window. CTRL + C copies the chosen text or object.

If you use CTRL + X to cut an object, or CTRL + C to copy let's say a folder, it stays where it was but is shown grayed out as long as you have not pasted it to new location. When you paste it, it disappears from the original location if cut, or is again shown normally if copied.
