PowerPoint 2010: What's the Difference Between Duplicate and Copy?

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by AJ George. Recently I was asked about the difference between the duplicate and copy commands, since they seemingly do the same thing.

Choosing duplicate is a time saver because it negates having to manually paste the slide by doing it automatically for you. Very important!
