  • If your clipboard is full, you may not be able to copy-paste properly. You can run the command below to clear your clipboard.

    Type cmd in the Windows search box, then right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

    When prompted for administrator permission, click Yes.

    Type cmd /c “echo off | clip” then press Enter.

  • There is nothing wrong with your current situation.

    The quickest method you can use to copy and paste in Windows is through keyboard shortcuts, Ctrl + C to copy and Ctrl + V to paste.

    Maybe you mean that these key combinations doesn’t work, or copy and paste in right-click menu doesn’t work? If so, try the following methods:

    1.Restart rdpclip.exe in Task Manager

    2.Restart Explorer.exe

    3.Clear clipboard history

    Open CMD.exe, and execute the following command:

    echo off | clip

    As soon as you hit Enter, check if the right-click Copy and Paste function is working fine.

    4.Use sfc /scannow and Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command to repair system image.

    5.Clean boot
