    IE 10 PNG Copy / Paste Problem


    Is anyone else have problems copying and pasting a PNG image file from IE10?

    I can copy and paste JPGs from IE10 into Word, but if I attempt to copy and paste a PNG file into Word, I get a empty object. Also, if I copy a PNG from IE10 and paste into Quicken (as an attachment), I get the URL (I should get the image).

    BTW, PNG copy / paste works fine if I use Google Chrome.

    Hi, welcome to the forums, try running sfc /scannow as admin at least 3 times:
    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    IE seems to work fine.

    I'd look to something like this but is a bit older:

    Yes, that command helps me for similar problems, I think it fixes broken(corrupted) system files but very useful. Couple of hours ago I tried to delete an unused picture and failed, I ran this command and it rectified the problem.

    OK. Thank you for the answer.

    I ran it once and said it couldn't fix detected issues.
    So I should have run it again, minimum 2nd or 3rd time, before refreshing... I see the tutorial confirms the 3 times run.

    I just tried copying a PNG image to word pad, it's fine with IE, it must be a minor glitch.

    And there are also websites out there that don't allow copy-paste.

    Trying it on one of those and you won't get any browser to do the job. What can I say: print-screen button.

    Probably the possible glitch will get fixed in an upcoming update, unless it's has something to do with some custom settings in security options in IE Internet Options menu like I said. In any case, default internet options should work alright.
