    Calculator

    I have an interesting problem with the Calculator in Vista (Home Premium).

    It seems I can not use the mouse to highlight numbers to copy or to insert
    in the field where the results are displayed. With Windows 98 I could
    highlight the numbers (using the mouse) easily and delete them. This is not
    a big deal but I was wondering if this is just me ... or is this an
    'improvement'?

    Apart from this, everything else seems to be just fine with the Calculator.

    Hi Dave,

    I can't with the mouse either. But I can use the "Edit" button to copy
    and paste---not only into the calculator but into other programs. And I can
    insert numbers into the "screen" by using the numbers on my keyboard. Neat.

    Re: Calculator

    You can also use the keyboard to copy and paste as well as delete numbers in
    Calculator. CTRL+C will copy and CTRL+V will paste. You can press DEL to
    delete everything or BACKSPACE to delete one digit at a time.
