Cannot Cut And Paste

  J B 10:20 21 Sep 2008

I have lost the ability to cut and paste within Vista SP1. No matter what program I am using ie Outlook 2007, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, IE7 Firefox I highlight what I want to cut and the minute I finish it the highlight disappears therefore no cut. Any Idea's?

Are you trying to use "Ctrl-C" and "Ctrl-C" or are you Right Clicking and using the drop-down menu? Perhaps you are clicking and letting go by accident. Whichever method you are using you could try the other one.

What I am doing is this, I use the left mouse button to highlight then the right mouse button to cut, copy, and paste. When I am using Outlook and want to forward a message I like to delete all the former addresses by highlighting them and pressing the delete key. I cannot do any of the above. J.B.

Solved the problem, my Logitech mouse gave up the ghost. Got a Microsoft wireless lazer mouse 6000v2 and everything is back to normal. Good mouse by the way. J.B.
