when i try to copy paste or cut text on the tool bar from a document using word i can only use thr short cuts using the control+c button etc as the three buttons on the menu bar are greyed out. Is this the norm or how do i get them to work on the tool bar.any help.Im using xp home thanks

Which version of Word please?

It is not "the norm" - the paste button should be greyed out until you have cut or copied simething, but cut and copy should be available unless it is a protected document.
