Chrome - Copy & Paste

I am not able to highlight text prior to copy and paste in Chrome.

Is this an extension I need?

I use Chrome all the time and have never had this problem. I don't think it's an extension as I've never installed any.

Sorry I can't be more helpful - hopefully somebody with a bit more knowledge will be along soon.

Thanks.

I haven't had it in the past either, seems to be something recent - last two or three months or so.

No trouble here with chrome, have you tried uninstalling then re-install?

It would seem that this problem is caused by Chrome Touch which I remembering you installing.

Thank you, Woolwell, right again!

As you suggest, I have no problem on my other, non-touch, computer.

I also discovered, while tweaking, that it only happens with certain websites, particularly Google Search.

Very curious; something to play around with over the weekend (how sad is that?)!
