    trouble with copy and paste


    Hi all,
    I have copied a calendar jpg using the snipping tool and have previously used edit - draw board and inserted an ellipse or circle to signify special dates. Today it won't work. C&P works everywhere else but no more on that jpg nor any other jpg's on my comp. I can copy or cut but when I right click to paste, the menu box is slightly greyed out and no paste can be done. I did the ol' Dr google and tried the CMD - cmd /c “echo off | clip” Also did the SFC checker, deleted and reinstalled mouse and keyboard drivers but still zilch. Any clues gurus??

    :)

    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?

    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.

    We would also like to know if you are experiencing this within a specific browser.

    To further identify the cause of the issue, we suggest performing a clean boot to check if there are any startup programs that could be conflicting with the copy and paste function. For steps on how to perform a clean boot, click
    here.

    We also suggest starting the PC in safe mode and try to copy and paste from a browser. Steps can be found
    here.

    We look forward to your response.
