Thats what it is, it was a gift....I have one issue....I can't for the life of me copy & paste text from anywhere unless I tap on a word, and then again, it only allows me to select that ONE word....How do I fix this, or do it right???

Should work just the same. Those are instructions for performing those tasks in Win 8, regardless of application.

Are you dragging the dots to select everything you want to copy?

then use a browser optimized for a tablet, such as IE - which is what I use on my Windows 8 tablet.

Is there no handle on the selection that lets you drag it over more things to copy?

No, but I guess it has to be "optimized" for tablets like the other guy said, because only IE seems to work & show the dot's.....
