The short cut for copying is CTRL + C.
The shortcut for pasting is CTRL + V.
To paste this as plain text, press CTRL + Shift + V instead of the standard CTRL + V, and the system will paste unformatted text.
Note: many programs follow this parameter (Chrome, Firefox, etc.) but not all, particularly Microsoft programs like Word or Outlook. For those there's a few alternatives:
- CTRL + ALT + V will show a 'paste special' dialog box.
- CTRL + Spacebar will remove formatting in already pasted text.
