    Welcome,

    How are you trying to do it? There are several ways.

    Hello richc46 - thank you for replying

    I do it several ways - I highlight the text, right click and press ''copy''
    but when I try to paste in the intented location ''paste'' does not appear. (cannot be clicked - not bold)

    I also use control C and control V - does not work either

    Is there another way and/or a solution?

    I have rebooted several times - still does not work.
    Also found drag and drop or copy and paste option enabled.

    About 3 days ago - I assumed it must have been something I installed so I did restoration process. No result.

    Ok let me think

    Try this. Go to search. Type CMD Do not hit enter. Rather right click and run as administrator.

    In the cmd prompt type this sfc /scannow

    Tell me what happens.

    I ran it and this is the result:

    Verification 100 percent complete
    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix them.
    Details included in CBS.Log windir\logs\CBS\CBS.log For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS/log
