    Try to right click the layer and select "Duplicate Layer...". Under "Destination" select "New" as the document, give it a file name and click "OK".

    This will copy the image in that layer into a new document.

    On the layer you want to copy press Ctrl + A on your keyboard.  This will select the entire layer

    Ctrl + Shift + C will copy the entire image wih all layers.
    Ctrl + C will copy only the selected layer

    Then paste your image in a new doc.
