In the context menu, you will see options to delete, rename, cut, and copy the selected object. For this example, click Copy:
With the Customers table now copied to your clipboard, you may then paste it elsewhere in this database, or even inside another database you currently have open. With any item selected inside the Navigation Pane, click Home → Paste:
The action will cause the Paste Table As dialog to open. Here, you may choose a new name for this table to paste, as well as choose from various paste options. For this example, leave the default settings and click OK:
The pasted table will now be listed within the Navigation Pane as a copy:
Right-click the “Copy Of Customers table” you just pasted and click Delete from the context menu:
