How do you operate basic commands like cut, paste, copy on a kindle fire HD. There are no right or left clicks because there is no mouse.

Long press on text you wish to copy/cut. You'll get orange "brackets" which you drag to include the text you're afte (this takes some dexterity, or a stylus). Then long press again and the text is sent to your clipboard (I don't know why/how but sometimes you geta pop up screen to select cut vs copy). Go to the location you want to paste to and long press again. You'll get a popup and can selectpaste.

Yes exactly what he said… Long press. Then spread the two brackets and copy… Then paste on wherever you want
