Problem with Copy and Paste

Recommended Posts

I have a problem pasting my clipboard onto this forum

 

If I copy say a joke and paste it onto my other forum, it works fine.

 

But when I open this forum and try and paste it nothing happens - other than the "paste" option changing from black to grey.

 

The only work-around I have found is to start a new topic or reply, minimise it, copy text into my clipboard, then maximise this forum's page and post it.

 

It's really weird and only applies to this forum - not the other two forums I post on.

You should try it on an I pad. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t

Works OK for me on W7, W10 and Android (Amazon Fire).

Have you tried using Ctrl+V ?

i.e. (hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and press the V key at the same time)

I did think of trying that but it is a right palaver doing it - then undoing it.

 

I have cleared the history and cache in Edge - but the malady lingers on.

 

I have solved the problem by using IE11 as the default browser instead of Edge.

Alan, I have added a 'paste' button to the toolbar - see below - perhaps you could give that a try:

The new button does not work with Edge on my computer either. I tried Ctrl V again and the right click menu - none work.

As long as you don’t remove your belly button by mistake.

A couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a check-up, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember ..

Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks. 

'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?' 

'Sure.' 

'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks. 

'No, I can remember it.' 

'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?' 

He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.' 

'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks. 

Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!' 

Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs. She stares at the plate for a moment.

'Where's my toast?'


An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. 
The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great I would recommend it very highly.' 
The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?' 
The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What’s the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know, the one that's red and has thorns' 
'Do you mean a rose?'
'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?' 


Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital.
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. 
On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him.
'I don't know,' he said. 'She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.'



A senior citizen said to his eighty-year old buddy: 
'So I hear you're getting married?' 
'Yep!' 
'Do I know her?' 
'Nope!' 
'This woman, is she good looking?' 
'Not really.' 
'Is she a good cook?' 
'Nah, she can't cook too well.' 
'Does she have lots of money?' 
'Nope! Poor as a church mouse.' 
'Well, then, is she good in bed?' 
'I don't know.'

’Why in the world do you want to marry her then?’

'Because she can still drive!' 


A man was telling his neighbor, 'I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it's state of the art. It's perfect.' 
'Really,' answered the neighbor. 'What kind is it?' 
'Twelve thirty' 


Morris (Sam), an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical. 
A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. 
A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, 'You're really doing great, aren't you?' 
Morris replied, 'Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.''
The doctor said, 'I didn't say that. I said, 'You've got a heart murmur; be careful.' 


One more.......


A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlour and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool... After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.
The waitress asked kindly, 'Crushed nuts?' 
'No,' he replied, 'Arthritis.'


Now, before you ‘forget’, send them on to some other folks you know who could use a good laugh!.

This thread is going way off topic - what is it with you guys.  Here I am with a serious windows problem on a Windows forum and you sit there contemplating your navel.

 

One of the mods should get out the whip.

 

Trouble is - if it were Irene - Gandalph would enjoy it...…..:laughitup:
