Cannot always select text on Surface Pro Tablet RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Surface Pro tablet with Windows 10 Pro (10.0.17134) and the Edge browser. I use an attached keyboard, but often scroll, select options, and highlight text with my finger on the touch screen. Frequently I find that I cannot select text in a forum post to copy and paste elsewhere, such as in a reply. I cannot even get an insertion point. The fix is to restart the computer. That always resolves the issue. And sometimes I cannot press on a hyperlink to get the menu allowing me to copy the link url. Instead, I go to the link, which is a waste of time. Again, the fix is to restart.

    Does anyone know why this happens? Is there some other way to restore what I believe is the expected touch screen behavior without restarting the computer?
