Windows 7: I can't paste

I can't paste

I have a Folder with many thoughts that I have copied in both German and English.
Now that I have some time on my hands I thought I would put this data in a different

folder with two sub-folders named German and English, but I am prevented from doing
this because the two "Paste" controls are greyed out.
How do I get around this perversity?:

Hi warp4dennis,

Firstly, I would suggest running your Antivirus program [if you have one] followed by Malwarebytes.
Have you tried using CTRL+C and CTRL+V to copy and paste the files?

I hope this helps!

I have tried using Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V, but the results are the same.

The two Paste functions remain greyed out.

Using the shorcuts CTRL+C and CTRL+V to copy and paste the files was just a way of seeing if you could perform the task without physically using the menu. It wouldn't change/amend the fact that the two options are greyed out!

What sort of user account are you using?

I hope this helps!
