Cut and Paste

I am a relative Cubase beginner, having only used it for about a year. I find when I am editing, the functions I use more than any others are CUT, COPY and paste. However, there is no way to do this other than keyboard shortcuts (of which I’ve never been a big fan) or menu clicks. Right mouse clicks bring up what is available on the Tool Buttons bar and there is no cut and paste just a bunch of functions most of which I never use. Can anyone explain this? Am I missing something here?
