Clipboard Access Prompt - Allow Programmatic clipboard access Not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    We are using Windows 10 Ent VDI, we set our IE settings for GPO preferences and have set enable under "Allow Programmatic clipboard access" for trusted sites and Internet. However, when using our internal Intranet, we are getting prompts to allow access to the clipboard even though the site is in our trusted sites. If I disable the settings on the user’s session and then enable it again it works fine, unfortunately our machines are non-persistent so any changes are lost at logoff.

    Any suggestions how to get this to work correctly?

  • Hi,

    using GPedit.msc

    >Computer Configuration>Administrative templates>Windows Components>Internet Explorer>Internet Control Panel>Security Page>

    Internet Zone

    Trusted Sites Zone


    Internet Zone

    I could not find an entry for

    "Allow Programmatic clipboard access" (which is what its called in the Internet Options>Security tab, Zone, settings)

    ... apparently it is called

    "Allow cut, copy or paste operations from the clipboard via script" in GPO.

    This policy setting allows you to manage whether scripts can perform a clipboard operation (for example, cut, copy, and paste) in a specified region.

    If you enable this policy setting, a script can perform a clipboard operation.

    If you select Prompt in the drop-down box, users are queried as to whether to perform clipboard operations.

    If you disable this policy setting, a script cannot perform a clipboard operation.

    If you do not configure this policy setting, a script can perform a clipboard operation.
