    Cannot cut and paste in Search box in Windows Explorer in Windows 10 but cannot cut and...


    I cannot cut and paste in Search box in Windows Explorer in Windows 10 but cannot cut and paste everywhere else, i.e. Word, email, etc. I have tried clearing the clipboard, running SFC /SCANNOW no problems, and making sure I have all updates. Is there anything that I can do to fix this?


    Thanks,

    Cut and Paste Problem

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    • Are you trying to cut and paste a folder from an external device?
    • Do you have any other User accounts on the computer? Did you check the files in other User accounts if any?
    • Was there any interruption during the cut and paste process?
    • If the cut and paste process was interrupted, did you receive any error code or error message?

    I suggest you to check the missing files in the Recycle Bin and try recovering the files. You can also try manually searching the files by entering the file name in the search bar.

    Please refer this article and run the diagnostic tool to troubleshoot on the issue.

    Hope it helps.

    Cut and Paste procedure is NOT "cutting"

    Hi. I am engaged in a lengthy exercise to shift a heap of files from RAR-type folders to normal folders.

    I am cutting-and-pasting. However, Windows is NOT cutting, it is copying and pasting and I then have to go back to delete the file.

    Why O why O why will this. !%^$% system not do as it is told. Have we slowly morphed into an Apple lookalike where nerds "know" what is best for us?

    When I "cut", I want it cut!

    Anyone know why this is occurring?

    Suggestions appreciated.

    my cut and paste is not working

    Hello Patricia,

    To better manage this thread regarding the cut and paste issue of your device. I'd like to verify if the issue persists. If yes, I'd like to ask you a few questions:

    • Are you using the shortcut keys or your mouse to cut and paste text?
    • Have you made any recent changes prior to this issue?
    • Are you getting any error messages or error codes?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far to resolve your concern?

    In the meantime, I'd recommend checking the on-screen keyboard if the issue also occurs on it. To open the on-screen keyboard, type
    OSK in the Search box and press
    Enter. Then, try cutting and pasting a text using it and check if the issue persists.

    Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.
