Hi folks and thank you for your input

I am unable to copy & paste in MS Word or Excell or my Note Pad. This has been going on for about a week. I have looked everywhere with no results. Thank you for your help.

How are you trying to cut and paste? There are ways to do cut via mouse (right-click ... cut/paste) or via keys (Ctrl+X to cut, Ctrl+V or Shift+Ins to paste)); have you tried each?

Have you scanned your machine for viruses?

I made an error in the original post.
It should be "copy and paste". Sorry about that.
Thank you for your help.

Same principle, except it is ctrl+c for the copy key.

Have you scanned for viruses?

And have you tried via mouse and via keyboard? Reason I ask is sometimes keyboards wear out, the key may no longer function.

Does it do it for all documents?

We need to know what you have tried.

Try copying and pasting files and folders inted of text.If this also don't work,then maybe its a virus or damged system files problem.
