Is there a way in word press to make a quick copy of an existing page, rename it, modify the contents and save as another page?

This is what I am using and love it.

Duplicate Post
https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicate-post/

This plugin allows to clone a post or page, or edit it as a new draft.

Which do you use?

1) Have you tried making a new page.

2) Than going to the page you would like to copy
edit it and click on the "text" tab to view the HTML and copy that to the new page under the "text" tab

Yes I was able to make a new page clicking on Clone.  I just don't understand the difference between Clone and New Draft.

I saw the page listed under All Pages and was able to click the pencil to edit it.  I am not sure what you mean when you say to "Click on the text tabe to view the html and copy that to new page under text tab.

The Clone button will make a copy of the post you selected and save it as a draft, but will keep you on the All Posts page. New Draft will copy the post as a draft, but it will bring you right into the Edit Post screen of the duplicated post. This is the only difference.
