Can't switch user can't copy and paste

Q: Can't switch user can't copy and paste

I ll try to shorten this some I was having some problems that I determined were either caused by the hard drive corrupted WinXP Media Version or my RAM I ran MEM Test user paste Can't switch copy can't and and it failed so I replaced the RAM with one G Can't switch user can't copy and paste stick That solved several issues I still had an issue with switching users I had the computer set up for users with myself as the admin My partition is that what it s called works just fine but if I log into one of the other three it will not allow shutdown restart log off or change user It forces me to do a hard shutdown I decided that my OS may be corrupted so I took the opportunity to install a bigger faster HD and installed WinXP Pro The problem did not go away This doesn t make sense to me What else could cause this I also have a new problem Sometimes the copy and paste feature will just quit working It seems to copy but then the Paste will not quot light up quot when I right click in the program I want to use Could this be driver related nbsp

Preferred Solution: Can't switch user can't copy and paste

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: Can't switch user can't copy and paste

It's possible that the group policy is keeping the regular users from doing things like log off, or shutdown. You may want to check what the settings are or put all those users into a single group and give them the proper permissions to do whatever you want.

I created a User form in excel 2003, with a Text box and command button. When the form runs I want to enter text into the text box and when I press the command button, I want the text to be copied to an Excel spreedsheet cell.

Guys I have done this in the past but cannot recall how and don't want to botch.

I had hoped Windows 10 corrected the "rename user account" function but nope. I renamed a User Account due to conflict on the LAN [same name, same spelling] and sure enough, now I have two names for the account, one a slightly hidden original name, and permissions issues. To rid it, I will create an all new Administrator account, move everything over, and demolish the old.
How to do? the docs/files are easy... the settings for apps etc are not as I recall


A:Move/copy-paste User Account data & docs to New User account same sys

Don't even try would be my recommendation.

Make a new Admin account and copy your documents. Set everything else up from scratch.

Most applications will store their stuff in %localappdata% but unless you have some specific app (Windows Live Mail or Outlook or something) tht you must move it would be much better not to try to move things.

If there is something specifically you want to move then ask about that - I've moved the 2 I mention above, for sure someone else has moved something else.

Generally it will be quicker (and cleaner) to start from scratch than trawl though everything hoping to make sure you moved the lot. You'll only end up missing some odd directory and it will not work.

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 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.

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.

A:Windows 7 takes forever to load the select user/switch user screen

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

The steps begin with disinfection from Safe Mode or boot disk, since if Win7 is badly infected it may not repair until cleaned up. Then everything possible to start it is sequenced.

I would also do the hardware tests provided before rescuiing the data to run Recovery or get the superior Clean Reinstall.

On windows professional -bit sp if a current user is screen locked the lock screen indicates the current user name and account is logged on and the computer is locked I am using Classic Logon in group policy and under local policy-security options-interactive logon i have it set to display username and account info the option with most information the problem i have is say a user is logged in and then I need to use the computer at that point the lock screen says so and so is logged in and locked I do a switch user log in and do my thing then log out Now the screen goes back to the base login screen saying 'ctrl-alt-del' not saying any user is currently logged in Now if that original user does log back in all his stuff is still here and everything acted like a basic screen lock happened so no problem there but what i want to happen is after a switch user logs out the screen goes back to the lock screen displaying who has the computer locked is there a way to do that thanks

A:Switch User then logoff, back to ctrl-alt-del login not previous user

At a guess, I'd say Classic Logon is the culprit here, as I do not have this issue with Windows 7 64-bit SP1 with the default login screen. Changing this is likely impractical next to the simple solution of ditching Classic Logon (It's an ancient artifact by now)

A:iTunes & sounds keep playing even when user logs off using Switch user

Could be because of Fast User Switching. That really doesn't Log Out the other user. It just Switches users, as in both are still logged in.

I have the option (right click copy, go to new folder, right click paste nothing happens), I drag, and it looks like it will go, I let go nothing happens, I use the menu copy / paste, nothing happens (no error message ever). Ctrl c, ctrl V no joy. all folders, all the time. Only one restore point showing on my computer, and that didn't help.

Any thoughts that I can try are appreciated. Ran virus scan, no issues...

See if the Vista System File Checker/ repair utility helps.

START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select run as Administrator | the black command prompt ("DOS") screen will appear | type the following:

sfc /scannow
Upon completion re-boot to allow files in use to be repaired.

HI,I have run into problem when it comes deleting previous copy&paste in emails already sent that is when i do another copy&paste the previous one comes up instead,thank's


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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I have also tried Ctrl/c and Ctrl/v and that doesn't work either.I am using Vista Home Premium 32. Any advice would be very much appreciated! Thanks.

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!,

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.
