You can make a single "Copy" but you will need to open each folder or document to "Paste"... multiple pastes are not possible.

✔ Best Answer
When you copy, it goes onto the Clipbook. It remains there until you either reboot or copy something else which replaces it. This is the reason why what you are asking cannot be done.

You can copy and paste with a single click from Windows Explorer.

To copy a group of files highlight the first file. Hold down the shift key and click the last file in the group. All files in between will be highlighted. You can them Right click on the highlighted files, copy and paste the whole group into a single folder.

Or you can highlight individual files by holding down the shift key and clicking each file in turn then Right click on one of the highlighted files and copy and paste all highlighted files.

All the source files must be in the same folder and the destination can only be a single folder. You can do the same thing with folders and all files within the highlighted folders with be copied to the destination using the same folder names,

So with a single paste you could copy the whole contents of a disk to another disk if the destination is big enough. The problem with this approach though is if an error should occur such a file is read only, then the paste will terminate with some files copied and some still..

Re #3.
Yes, that might be what the poster wants I suppose.

I read it that the requirement was to make successive copy commands across a range of folders, sub-folders and files in different places, which is precluded because each copy command overwrites the last (whether it was a single or multiple).

I recall some freebie clipboard replacement programs that can take multiple copies without overwrite (if that's what you want) - worth a Google search.

Here's one for starters (unverified):
