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?

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

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.
