A user complained that he couldn't copy and paste appointments on his calendar.
This should be a basic Outlook feature, but NO, Outlook can't do something so simple as copy and paste appointments on a calendar. Really? How stupid!
Yes, the Copy command is missing from the right-click context menu, but that doesn't mean it doesn't work…. try using the old standby Ctrl+C to copy and Ctrl+V to paste.
If you prefer dragging (works best if both dates on visible on the screen), you can Ctrl+ drag to copy the appointment to a new date. Or right-click and drag – you'll be offered the choice of Move or Copy when you release the right button.
You can copy or drag appointments to other calendars too. Right click and drag to either a date on a calendar opened side-by-side or to the calendar in the left pane then choose between Move or Copy, or drag to move. Or use the keyboard shortcuts to Copy or Cut and Paste.
To move recurring events between side-by-side calendars, use right-click drag to copy the series, or drag to the calendar in the left pane. If you're in a list view, drag to calendar in the left pane.
Suggestion from Ken: Add COPY, PASTE and CUT to the Quick Access Toolbar by selecting them from ALL COMMANDS
