Cut--Copy--Paste using IE9

Q: Cut--Copy--Paste using IE9

On some sites that I try to ccp a small magnifier pops up & a small square box that contains a diagonal blue arrow. It appears to work on copy but when I paste my system freezes and nothing works.

How can I correct this.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Cut--Copy--Paste using IE9

Are you referring to pasting text into, say, an MS Word doc?

The little blue box is controlled by the 'Paste Options' functions that are located in Word Options, Advanced, Cut, Copy + Paste, 'Show paste options button' and 'Use smart cut and paste options.' You might try experimenting with them, starting with unchecking and rebooting, and then rechecking and rebooting.

I have been using Microsoft Office Excel (2007) and the copy paste, copy Special paste functions have worked fined. Recently Copy paste does not work every time, the cell that I am copying from does not highlight and when selecting paste, nothing is pasted. When selecting Special Paset, I don't get all the options for copying All, Formulas, Values etc, I only get the option to Paste as Unicode Text or Text.

I tried the copy paste function in Word, this works but does not copy the format, only text is copied. I have restarted the computer, but this does not change anything. These functions have always worked in the past, this has only become an issue after I installed Firefox on my computer. I don't know if the two are related or just a coincident.

Before I re install MS Office, I would like to see if this can be resolved

Any support with this is appreciated.

I selected a folder which has 27 GB according to the folder properties. If I copy and paste this folder to another drive Windows copies 12 GB of files. I tried with another 2 GB folder and if I copy/paste it it only copies 22 MB of files.

What's causing this and how do I fix it?

I have one internal drive with 1 TB.
The data there is very important to me , so I bought External removable drive for backup.
Now, I want to copy the data from one drive to the second drive but I have to be sure I have a perfect copy of the data.
The data is mostly songs movies and documents.
I'm using windows 7.

My question is this:

1.If I'll transfer the data through windows 7 by copy and paste, I could be sure i have a perfect copy?
2.There are tools for comparison Between the original data to the data that was copied?
If so, what are they?

If I do not in the right place please Please pass my message to the right place.thanks.


A:transfer data through windows 7 by copy and paste perfect copy?

There is no reason why using copy and paste won't give you a perfect copy and in my view it's more reliable than using the Windows backup utility.

One program I've found invaluable is Microsoft's SyncToy, which you can download here: Download: SyncToy 2.1 - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

It will sync files between folders of the same name on two separate drives or partitions ( I always use the Echo procedure).

You might also want to consider using Windows 7's Robocopy function.

I've been having this problem for a while and I can really use some help now. When I try to copy & paste any files, folders, pictures, etc.. it will not work. Copy & paste to different folder or different screen, etc. An error message box will pop up saying - windows explorer has stop working then it disappears and a 2nd message box will pop up saying - windows explorer is restarting. Then shuts down the folder that's open. However I can " Cut and Paste or Drag a file to a different location" It just won't copy and paste.

Files that I'm trying to copy and paste are not anything special. It's all words, excel, power point, pictures, even folders etc...

It just won't copy and paste but again I can cut and paste.

Any ideas?

Thank you so much.

Right click on it and left click Run as Administrator.
In the window that will open type the following and hit enter.

Let the system run and it will find any problems and repair them.
Re-boot and do it all again for either 3 times or until no issues are found.

Hi all,

Please let me know which one takes long time. Cut+Copy+Paste or Copy+Paste?

A:copy paste vs cut paste

The only difference between cut+paste and copy+paste is that copy duplicates the file in a new location and stops, cut duplicates the file then deletes the original. So cut has one more operation which will take a little longer, but not significantly.

One exception is if you move (cut+paste) a file to a different location on the same drive partition, the file doesn't actually have to be copied, it can be left where it is and just the file directory changed so it shows in a different folder. This is much faster than copying the entire file. So moving within the same drive letter, copy+paste takes longer than cut+paste.

Is there a way to copy/paste text from a pdf file to Word or Excel?

A:Copy/Paste pdf's

In Adobe Reader version 6, Select Text and Select Image buttons should be on the toolbar by default.

You can do it in version 5, but I can't remember exactly. The appropriate toolbar button needed to be clicked & held down for the various select options to become available (sliding-out style), IIRC (this wasn't covered in Help).

NB: if you have v5, DON'T upgrade -- six sux.

One of our employees is unable to copy/paste from our terminal server in Europe to her local machine anymore, and I'm trying to figure out the problem. I've already made sure that the Clipboard is checked in the RDP connection properties. I tried connecting as her on my machine, and the same thing happens. If I log out and then reconnect as me, copy/paste works. Should I have the remote admin take a look at his policy? Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you!,

A:Copy/Paste through RDP

Log in to the remote system as her and check to see if there is a process running named rdpclip.exe

If it is running, stop it and restart it - then test copy/paste again.

Also see if there are any errors in Event Viewer > Window Logs related to that exe.

A:cannot copy and paste

Loss of normal Windows functions...may indicate malware or corrupt system files.

Such may also indicate a need to run chkdsk /r and defrag the system.

Running sfc /scannow or a repair install are normal attempts to overcome missing/corrupt system files.

I tend to start with the easiest attempts first...chkdsk /r and defrag.

Elimination of malware is an ongoing system maintenance security procedure, taking place at all times.

The only thing I can think of is that the text in question has some special formatting that is not allowed in Notepad.

i dont know whats wrong but i cant copy and paste anything this is so frustrating.

A:why can i not copy and paste

Hi guy,
Not sure what your specific problem is.
- cannot copy and paste in Word or any text editor, or
- cannot copy and paste from the browser

How are you doing the copy and paste functions?
- left mouse button down and highlighting text then right click and select copy from dropdown menu, or
- highlight text and use Edit from menu at top of browser and then click on copy

If you could explain exactly what you are doing then I would get a better idea of what the problem might be.

When I'm on the internet and I copy/paste, I get a duplicate pastes. If I copy "Bleeping Computer", when I paste, I get "Bleeping ComputerBleeping Computer". AND I don't know if this is related, but when I try to use my "back" button, I have to hit my "refresh" button and then hit the "back" button for it to go "back". Both of these problems happen most of the time, but not all the time. I typically use Internet Explorer (most recent version) and Google when on the internet. I'm a "low-tech redneck" and should probably be treated as such in any responses .

I cannot copy from a Word or Excel document to either Word, Excel or to the body of Mail. The copy part works but the paste option is still grayed out. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V is not working either. Can someone please help.

A:Copy and paste

What you can paste depends on the type and format of what is copied, and if that data type is acceptable to where you want to paste it. Do a test where you only copy/paste plain text and see it that works. In Notepad for example.

You can also try Ctrl+Shift+V as paste method for copied text. That will skip any formatting and only paste plain text.

In Word/Excel try the Paste Special tool to maybe get a hint if any other paste methods is possible. Or view the Clipboard(from the Home tab) and verify that what you copy is really copied to the Clipboard.

when composing an email while using firefox (myway portal), when I attempt to Paste some text in which I have copied, I cannot do it--I get a message about "privileged information" and it tells you to go to the website and follow some directions about "profiles" and changing files, etc...

I have tried it but to no avail. Is there and easier way to use Copy/Paste while composing?

Thank you!


A:Copy and Paste

Is this prompting you to go to the Firefox Website? or something other? If it's prompting for the Firefox site, you may not have needed file extensions, or be trying to paste an unrecognized font. Can you copy/paste from within the composer? indicating the copy/paste is an allowed function?

What are you using for the E-Mail Client? The Windows Clipboard can hold only one item at a time, clears that one out when doing another Copy or PrntScrn function. Turning off or rebooting the computer clears the RAM/Random Access Memory which removes anything in the Windows Clipboard.
This is for the Windows version:
Don't know which version of Office or Outlook you are using, each is different from each other. Some versions of Microsoft Office can hold more items, it's a separate clipboard from the Windows version.

I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop. When I am using Internet Explorer (and possibly other applications), I am unable to select/copy/paste a small amount of text. I can do it using Ctl C only if I select the "Select All" option, but cannot if just trying to highlight a line or 2. This is what happens: when I try to select a line, a plus sign with a dotted-line box highlights the area (similar to creating a text box), then, a window comes up that says "Clip, Print, or Use Standard Selection". Doing the clip puts it in a clip book, but when I try to retreive it, it will not work. Doing Ctl C will not copy it. Do I have an option set incorrectly on my computer? Or, am I just being clueless since I'm used to a Mac. Please help if you can.

Hi Roxiisco,

Strange post, this - It must be where you're trying to copy from. What I recommend is that you open-up a new Wordpad/Notepad document, type some text in there and then select it so that is shows with a layer over it. Once you have this, right-click and attempt to Copy.

Let us know how you get on!

I just moved back to Windows from being on a Mac for several years. The only thing I truly miss is the way that the "apple" key worked. You could switch between open programs and do copy, cut, paste, etc commands with it. It was nice to be able to do everything with one key.

My question is would there be a way to assign the alt key to do the same functions as the ctrl key? I'd still like to be able to use it for alt+tab function, but being able to do copy and paste with it as well would be awesome.
