Select Text From a Web Page on Your Android Tablet: Selecting and coping text from a web page works similarly to selecting text elsewhere on your Android touch screen phones. The only difference is that you must long press the text to start the selection process.

Notice that after long pressing the text, you can drag the selection tabs to mark the block or use the select all command on the action bar toolbar to select all the text on the page.

Let it also be known that unlike selecting text elsewhere, selecting text on a web page opens access to some special features. Example, you can choose the action bar’s share command to send the chunk or text to another application, send it in an e-mail message, or post it to a social networking site. You can as well use the web Search command to perform a Google search on the selected text.
