    Copy/Paste and drag not working.


    I have looked at pretty much everything that I could have done and I have done it. These are most of the things I have tried without success:

    • Restart explorer.exe
    • Run: cmd /c"echo offclip
    • taskkill.exe /F /IM rdpclip.exe --> returns not found error
    • taskkill.exe /F /IM Mstsc.exe --> returns not found error
    • Copy/Paste and drag not working. 762cda86-ec7b-43cb-8f6f-a594cadada37?upload=true.png

    • And another registry change that didn't work that I can't find right now.

    Can someone please help me with this as I need this by tomorrow.


    This is a screen recording of the issue:

    Please note this issue also occurs when right-clicking and copying and pasting that way.

    :)

    COPY AND PASTE

    Hi Sandra,

    We need more information about your concern so that we can identify the cause of the copy and paste issue. Please provide the following:

    • What browser are you using?
    • Is this issue happening with a specific website?
    We suggest trying to do the same function (Copy and Paste) using a different browser and using other website as well.

    Looking forward to your response.
