What they are saying is: Dropbox will automatically send that Link to your computer's Clipboard.  So, it's the same as if Dropbox: 1) gave you a Link, and then 2) you highlighted it and 3) you Copied it.  Dropbox is essentially just saving you the step of highlighting the Link and Copying it; they already automatically "Copied" it to your Clipboard/computer.  Now, all you have to do is go wherever you want, and hit Paste, and the Download Link will be Pasted.  (Just try it real quick: go in a Word document or your email, and hit Paste: it should Paste a Dropbox Link).

 

Hope this helps,
C.

Its your standard clipboard Elizabeth.

So, if you 'paste' in to an application it should be there.
