Cant copy & paste to paint?

It was working great until recently. If I can remember correctly I used to go to either file or edit at top left corner and copy the screenshot,schematic,etc. Then paste to paint but it doesnt work any more? Ive run sfc/scannow but that didnt fix it? Any ideas?

Hi,
Have you tried Paste from in paint if it's a local file.
How about the keyboard shortcut PrtScrn key and paste in paint ?

There's always the windows snipping tool

Acrobat reader DC is the program. When I go to edit to click copy, the copy section is greyed out?

Snipping Tool may be a good option then if you don't want to use a 3rd party program to capture with.

odd, ... in all my born put-together I have never seen a keyboard without a print screen 'key'. Look carefully in the upper-right area of your keyboard.

If it's a multimedia type keyboard for a TV, it may not have a print screen key. I had one that didn't.
