Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint - Using Paste Special

If you routinely cut and paste from different documents, web sites, or PDF files you will notice  that when you paste the copied text it brings along the formatting of the previous document.

The best way to get rid of this “stuff” is to use the Paste Special command. Once you copy your text from the document source using the copy command or Control-C on the keyboard, use the paste special command to paste unformatted text into Word, Excel or PowerPoint.  This will “clean-up” the text for you.
