    Windows Live Mail Copy/Paste

    I have a dell Dimension 8200 with XP SP2, DSL connection

    Lately, I've noticed that I canot perform the copy/paste function
    whereas it use to do this. Usually I was able to right click on the
    document and right click copy, then paste it to Word or wherever.
    Then I started have to use the copy icon on the page but now when
    I do this and try to paste it nothing happens. Oddly when I try to
    close
    the page that supposedly was pasted it asks if I want to save it but
    there's nothing there.

    Any Thoughts/Suggestions?

    The Ctrl-C/Copy/Paste bug has been discussed here quite extensively.
    Try copying from the preview pane instead of opening a message in its
    own window.

    I have no idea what your talking about, I see nothing that offers a
    preview
    pane and never heard of this before.

    On the menu bar: View, Layout, Reading pane.
    My apologies, I didn't realize MS had renamed the preview pane to "reading" pane.
    If you don't see the menu bar, press Alt.

    I don't see this, I should have stated that I'm using Hotmail via Live
    Messenger.

    In that case, you are in the wrong newsgroup. This one is for the
    Windows Live Mail email program.
