    In the system preferences you can change the mouse settings so the mouse has a left and right click. Otherwise just select the thing you want to copy and press 'cmd C then cmd V' The mouse is very good at figuring out if you left or right clicked. Just experiment!

  • Highlight the text or url bar link, hold the control button and click on the highlighted text/link. You will be given the standard options of cut, copy, paste etc. Click on the copy option, then do the same action to paste wherever you want it to go.

  • I wanted to know the same question is a developer I need to cut-n-paste between Terminal windows a lot..

    The easiest and quickest method I found was highlight the text you want to copy and holding the mouse button down drag the text where you want it.

    Pretty simple!
