Windows 7: Copy & Paste problem

Copy & Paste problem

When I try to highlight text to copy, it only copies part of the text. I have to keep trying over and over again until it finally works. Doing this over and over again is getting frustrating.

Hi,

What kind of mouse do you use, wireless? Check the battery(s) If wired or wireless it could be dirty, clean the optical eye. Worst case would be the micro switches could be bad or out of adjustment. Do you have an extra one to test?

I can try cleaning the mouse, but I will try another spare that I have. Will let you know the outcome.

Lehnerus- It happens with any software but now the problem is fixed. I was told to triple click at the begining of the link or phrase and that worked.

Triple clicking is a selection process, glad it's working for you.

You can also:
  1. Single click at the start of the text you want to select
  2. Hold the Shift key
  3. Single click at the end of the text you want to select
This should select everything between the two clicks. :)
