Experts,

I am running redhat Linux.  I  need to do a password recovery on an application. In order to do the recovery, I need to open a file with a text editor and replace an encrypted password string.

I opened the file using nano.  I then navigate to the encrypted password and backspace to delete it.

I have the new encrypted password in my clipboard but I don't know how to paste it into nano.  Which keyboard keys would paste it?
