I have W7, IE10. In IE 10 copy and paste is not working, although it was yesterday. I ran sfc/scannow, still did not work. It does, however, work in Chrome.Can anyone suggest a fix as I prefer IE 10 as all my favorites etc are there.

I seem to remember something about Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, but cannot recall what it was...

You can make sure it is ticked by right clicking the task bar and choosing properties.

Now I am not sure what you tick on when you get in there it might be menu but you have to make sure copy and paste is ticked.

Sometimes a reboot fixes it.On my iPad at the moment so cannot explain it any better.

System restore to yesterday has fixed it - do not know why! Also Speckie was not working - now it is so something happened! A mystery...

It has happened to me before and a reboot fixed it.

Glad you got it sorted.

I seem to recall that there was an issue with Skype Click to Call that causes the Copy & Paste function to not function, but think that was to do with Office not Internet Explorer.

I do not have Skype on the desktop. Whatever it was, the system restore fixed it. Curious that it stopped Speckie and copy / Paste in IE10 but not in Chrome. One of life's little mysteries. BTW before the system restore I tried normal restart and sfc/ scannow.
