Why can't I copy text (words) from an internet browser into a word 13 document? I'd like to know how to fix it...It used to work few days a go.

thanks, Anat

How are you trying to copy and paste it?, IE. Ctrl c & ctrl v, right click and copy/paste, etc ?What happens when you try to paste? Any odd behavior or error messages?

Which browser are you trying to use? Can you copy and paste from document to document, folder to folder?

I don't need to be right, but I am never wrong.

Presumably you are highlighting text or using a Select All facility. Does it work if you copy to NotePad?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you have not restarted the machine in a while, do so now as it often fixes flaky glitches like this one.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

There are some websites on the internet that do not allow the users to copy the contents of the webpage. Are you unable to copy the contents of one website or are you having this issue with every website?
