Windows 7: Pasting Problem with My PC

Pasting Problem with My PC

Since yesterday (Tuesday March 20, 2012), all of a sudden I have been experiencing problems with Pasting files from one area to another. The "Copy" part is working but the pasting - forget about it. There have even been instances whereby the "Pasting" part would be in black and when I click "Paste" nothing happens. On all other instances, the "Paste" feature is in grey - can anyone help me please? Thank You!

Hi SFSF2626 and welcome to W7 Forums

Do the keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl-X, Ctrl-C, and Ctrl-V) still work?

Hello SFSF2626, and welcome to Windows 7 Forums.

In addition, you might also see if "Copy to folder" and "Move to folder" still works for you for now.

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder

Hope this helps,
