KayPee’s Believe it or Not [1]

This is a true incident I heard during dinner from my … & its truly worth a chain mail and I really wish this will spread laughs and also some knowledge about the pathetic state of some colleges’ teachers.

A newly appointed professor in his first week in college is sitting in front of a Windows PC and types in a letter in Notepad. When finally he wants to take a printout of the text, he finds that there is no printer attached to the PC. He finds that the PC next to it has a printer. So he gets a briliant brainwave and does something really mindboggling to get the printout from the other PC. What is it?

Hints:
a. Both the PCs are not connected to each other (either indirectly or through LAN)
b. He does not have any other plug n play storage device (usb drive, floppy, CD, etc)
c. He is a professor of Computer Science(Operating Systems)

Answer:

He selects the text in notepad by Right Click -> Select All. Then he does a Right Click -> Copy. He then disconnects the mouse from his PC, takes it and connects it to the other PC, and does a Right Click -> Paste !!! No wonder, nothing got pasted.
