    Trouble Copying & Pasting Website URLs


    When I copy and paste the URL from websites on a chat forum it's always hit or miss.
    When the URL doesn't work others can post it successfully for me.

    So is this a location thing (my IP address is in Canada) or is this a windows problem?

    Nope. What browser are you using?

    If you are using the Touchpad, it can be kind of tricky. A mouse makes it easier.

    What's weird is the URL gets pasted but half the time it doesn't work for me or others.
