Hi, and thanks in advance for any help received.

I have just tried to copy 2 names to a different location but when I right-click the mouse it just shows Cut and Copy highlighted, the Paste option is faint type and I can't use it. Been working fine up till now!

What application are you using?

Does the keyboard shortcut Control + V work to paste ? (Control + C should copy anything selected).

If paste is greyed out, it would indicate there is nothing on the clipboard. Are you sure you have actually copied something?

You can check what's on your clipboard - go to Start/Run/type clipbrd/then OK
