How can I get a list of my keywords

I want to revisit an old ad campaign. How can I get a list of the keywords I used, including negative keywords, so I can study it? Actually, the list is under the keywords tab, but when I click on the box to select everything, it selects 50 columns! I want to copy/paste only the keywords. Also, I can't find the negative keywords I used anywhere. Where are they?

Hi''

You can go to keyword tab and select all and click on Edit- Copy and paste those keywords in a separate ad group, It will only copy the keywords.

Also you can follow this link to find negative keywords https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2453972?hl=en

Hi David : Here's clarification on how to do it

Keywords :

1) Go to Keywords Tab
2) Adjoining Search link - you will find a download button - it will download all keywords with stats.

Negative Keywords
1) Go to Keywords Tab
2) Scroll down - and under keywords - you will get a link of Negative Keywords
3) Open it - then you can download Negative Keywords on basis of ad groups / campaigns.

Hope it clarifies your query.

Regards,
Zippinder

Thanks to both of you. Actually, though, what I had in mind was pasting to a spreadsheet. Over "all campaigns" I have 11 screens of keywords. It will be a lot easier for me to scroll down one spreadsheet than to try to flip through 11 screens! Plus, if I have only the keywords and none of the other stuff, I can add a column or two in order to sort them.

As Zippinderpal S said, you can download all keywords by selecting all rows across all pages. Also, you can download them to a spreadsheet, just select a proper report format. Same applies for a list of negative keywords.

This doesn't work for me. I am able to select all of the keywords. I am able to Edit > Copy, which does not put the keywords on the clipboard. Then I am able to create a new ad group. But I can see no way to paste the keywords into the keyword list of the new ad group and from there copy to the clipboard! I hope someone answers today.

Zippinder, I don't see an "adjoining search link" or a "download button". Please reply.
