Windows 7: copy problem

09 Nov 2011   #11

Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit

My best guess is that something is clearing your clipboard whenever you open a new program. That shouldn't happen of course, and I don't know what could be responsible for it. Some overly aggressive security setting of some kind?

I wish I had a better idea.

There are several different ways to Copy and Paste, and occasionally, for whatever reason, one of them just doesn't work in certain instances. I find, for example, that it does NOT always work when I just highlight the text, click on Copy and then try to Paste --- I get nothing. BUT if I highlight the text, then right-click and select Copy, for whatever reason, when I go to Paste that text, it works.
