The copy and paste functions simplify our everyday relationship with our computers. We owe these two well-known functions, « copy » and « paste », to a man who had worked for firms like Xerox, Apple, and Amazon. In fact, it was in 1973 that Mr. Larry Tesler first implemented these functions. At the time, he was working on the development of the Gypsy software, which was the very first word processing software. Thank you, Mr. Tesler!
Tip: Here are the keyboard shortcuts for « copy », « paste », and « cut »
