The "Clipboard" is a section of memory that allows you to hold text and graphics independent of the program you're using. You drag the mouse over what you want to copy to hi-lite it, right click and select "Copy." Then go to a point in any other program that accepts that type data (text, .jpg etc.) right click and select "Paste" and Shazam! there it is.

Cut and paste works the same way except it removes the data from the source.
