i need help

Can somebody please help me with copy and paste from other websites to my workspace on Windows I'm struggling

Hi Kennedy!

I'm not sure if this is your exact issue, but I have found a trick that might help.

Use a simple text editor (Notepad in Windows, TextEdit on a Mac).

Keep the text editor open.

Often, when you copy from the web, you also pick up the HTML formatting code (such as font-family information).

As an interim step, paste the code into the simple text editor (in your case, Notepad) and then immediately cut it back out before you paste it into its final destination (in the case, your workspace).

That will automatically strip the HTML down to merely text.

I do it ALL THE TIME!?!

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
