Copy & Paste Into Notepad

Has this "feature" been eliminated ?? I copied (r click, "copy") part of an e-mail,
opened Notepad, r click, and "Paste" is greyed out.
OR
Where can I "Paste" the information I "copied" ??

Hello bej,

Try it again, perhaps it wasn't copied properly. Highlight the text, hold down Ctrl and tap "C" at the same time. Then go to notepad , click anywhere in notepad, and hold down Ctrl again and tap "V" this time.

It worked as you outlined.
So, the r-click "Copy", bring up notepad, r click "Paste" is "old Hat" ??
BTW, thanks for the answer !!!

No, it should work. Perhaps it just wasn't able to copy or something, or there was a mis-click.

Try it. Although, there are some programs that do not allow the right click menu, notepad does
