    Cut & Paste Not Working: Instantly Solved:


    I had this cut & paste problem for 2-weeks, I eventually found the answer on the www, it was only a few short lines, the other answers contained huge amounts of information and for this reason looked more convincing, I mean to say if they can write 500 words on this subject one assumes that they must know what they are talking about. The few magic lines said:

    In word highlight the page you are working on, control-A.
    Press keys CONTROL-SHIFT with left hand.
    With right hand press F9. And thats it cured.

    Others have restart is the answer, I did, time after time, but it was no use. Stick with the 3-golden lines above.

    :)

    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.

    cut and paste not working

    This subject has been beaten to death, by frustrated people, but aside from one answer of a microsoft tech in 2015 (which only 2 found helpful and did not answer the question), why won´t cut and paste work?

    I cannot download windows 10 again, until this problem is solved. Twice I downloaded windows 10, and twice I paid for expensive repairs (and loss of time on my use of my computer), but due to the pressure to download before the cut off date at the end of
    this month, I again downloaded windows 10 (and thank God I had to foresight to save how to roll it back on an email).

    WHY WON´T CUT AND PASTE (CONTROL C CONTROL V WORK). <removed>I have a computer to work and for pleasure, not to scream and swear at.

    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.
