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

Thanks so much for sharing. I've been trying to figure this out on my own. You explained nicely.
