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.

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.
