Copy & Paste ACCESS DENIED error in Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • After copying part of an image from within Paint.net and receiving the error below, my copy & paste functionality stopped working in Windows 10.

    When I tried

    cmd /c "echo off | clip"

    as suggested by many sources, I got an "ERROR: Access is denied." error.

    What can I do to resolve this apart from rebooting my computer?

  • What is Paint.net? Think you need to post that in the Paint.net sight not an MS one as it does exist on Windows 10.

  • @l0basetom access denied errors when accessing the clipboard happens when a process fails to release the clipboard.
    When you logoff and logon again: does this fix the problem?

  • Hi, 

    Does copy and paste work well in notepad?

    If the issue only occur in the third party software Paint.net, I recommend to ask for help from their official support.

    If you can't use copy and paste in notepad, please check the error code and reply us.

    Bests,

  • @Joy-Qiao : he already wrote that the command line tool "clip" also gives access denied.

  • @10basetom : seems you already asked in the Paint.Net forum?
    paint.net 4.0.18 appears to corrupt Windows clipboard

  • @10basetom are you perhaps using some 3rd party clipboard manager?
