    Copy Paste not working when using RDP


    Hi guys,
    I didn't know where to post so I'm posting in the general section. I've noticed one very weird behavior on my system in the past few weeks. I take RDP sessions of our office servers over VPN. Earlier my copy-paste functionality was working without any issues but the past couple of weeks I've notice that whenever my RDP app is open then I'm not allowed to copy-paste anything. It's like the copy-paste function stops working for as long as the RDP app is open. Once I close it, copy-paste starts working normally.

    Has anybody else ever faced this kind of issue or is it just my buggy version of windows?

    Windows Version: Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.815)

    :)
