Abstract

Sometimes, it would be useful to paste content all at once that derives from multiple seperate windows, however, there is no way in current window navigation systems to select multiple objects in seperate windows. Further, many users prefer to keep both hands on the keyboard at all times as sometimes, a mouse is unavailable or inconvenient. As such, most navigation systems allow a mouseless way to perform most tasks. Disclosed herein is a methodology for allowing a user to paste objects from seperate window sources at once by allowing the user to accumulate their copy actions into the clipboard via a keyboard shortcut key.
