    Copying and Pasting Links


    I copy a link from the adress bar of a site and then paste onto Word doc but nothing happens. I go back and hit copy and paste again and then it works?

    Whats going on?

    first thing that comes to mind is ,make sure you left click the document before you right click to paste ,that's assuming you are using a mouse

    that was a long shot on my part .so it use to work.

    most of us use 2 or more browsers ,so I will ask this in case you do, is it same with all browsers, also does it happen if you copy/ past from the main text of webpages to the document.

    this is also a long shot . try running sfc
    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    Create another Windows user account and see if you can do it in the new account. If so, it could be malware.

    You can also open an elevated command prompt, then type: sfc /scannow

    Perhaps a System Restore is in order if neither of those work.
