Edit | Cut

Click Cut on the Edit menu to delete any text that you have selected and to move it to the clipboard.

This command is equivalent to pressing CTRL+X or SHIFT+DELETE or clicking the Cut (Ctrl+X) button (screen shot of the cut button) on the toolbar.

You can use the Cut command on the Edit menu only with docked or tabbed windows, but you can use the shortcut keys and the toolbar button with any window that supports this feature.
