That does not make any sense to me. double clicking a mask does not do anything special. A single click will target a layer mask. Adding more clicks does not change that or do anything special.  A ctrl+click on a mask will load it as a selection.  Its a load selection.  Alt+Click will Display the mask in the Image window rather than displaying the current composite so you can work on the mask. Shift+Click will disable or enable the layer mask its a toggle. An Alt+Shift+Click will target the layer mask and add a mask overlay  on the image display to can edit with Black and white paint brush with the mask overlay.

What are you trying to do as double-clicking the layer mask doesn't do much?

To copy and paste anything in Photoshop you need to select it first

Are these definitely instructions for Adobe Photoshop (and not other apps, Photoshop Elements, or something else)?
