    How do I get my Cut and Paste function to work properly


    Hi,

    I had posted a topic on here previously about my Cut and Paste function, however this function seems to be selective.

    I can use cut and paste using my mouse cursor to highlight on a sentence, copy then paste the highlighted words onto a document, no problem.

    I can also do the same function on words on this forum.

    This ability is no longer possible on a GPS forum that I'm a member of, it use to work but not now. On the odd occasion I can highlight two words and that's it, try again maybe 30 times and words cant be highlighted.

    The only way I can copy the words is do a PrintScreen capture and write the words that I needed.

    Also , Coastwatch fishing reports where I had employed Control + S and save as HTML, then open using Notepad, I can then keep what I wanted and discard the rest. This ability worked a few times, but sadly now , it sort of works but I don't get the fishing report details, just a whole lot of goblygook.

    Would anyone know how I can resolve this?

    Regards,
    Bondy

    :)

    Hi Sabrina,



    Provide us with the information below to help you better.

    • Which build is currently running on your computer?

    • Is the copy/paste functioning not working fro particular application or on whole computer?
    • How are you using copy/paste option via right click or keyboard shortcuts or via edit menu within the application?
    • Is the issue specific to a file format or all the file formats?

  3. 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.

    copy/paste function is not working

    Original title : Desktop Window Manager Session Manager

    I'm not sure I''m in the right area, but my copy and paste functions aren't working. I've tried the Run, OK, services.msc methods searching for the Clipboard and the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager.
    Neither is listed. How can I find them and reinstall them Then hopefully my copy and paste functions will start working properly again. Thank Sabrina
