Close, but different
I'm glad to see this thread, as I was at a loss on where to start looking!!
My dilemma is I can't copy/paste from a Yahoo mail into a Word document or Word as editor Outlook email. In the case of email, it locks up that document, but not the application. I can End Task on just the offensive email, but it leaves Outlook running. The above trick of starting the document before copy didn't work.
Outlook 2002, SP3; XP Pro; Office Pro 2002; Word 2002
Kelvin, Did You Try?
Because some webpages don't allow a RIGHT click copy/paste, try highlighting the section you want to copy, then press "Ctrl-C" (at the same time) on your keyboard to copy the selected text.. Now use your cursor to click once in the area where you want to paste, then press "Ctrl-V" to paste the text..
Hope this helps.
it's the paste
It's the paste that is the problem. I've played with it some more. It's only from the text of a Yahoo email that won't paste into a Word document. It Selects just fine from the Yahoo email. That same text will paste into Excel, PowerPoint & Access, just not Word or Word related. Text taken from the Inbox list of mail will copy/paste into Word. It's just anything from the body of the letters that won't paste.
I've also tried the keystroke commands and those from the Edit Pulldowns. Same result. No pasting..... Also, it is related to Word. The problem goes away if you remove "Word as the editor" from Outlook. I've also tested that it's not related to the HTML or Rich text settings....
I Can't Paste from Yahoo! Mail either...
It appears that the previous post in this thread suggested that a solution lay in adjusting the settings in Outlook. Am I correct? It didn't make sense to me because I never use Outlook and I never had this problem until recently. I'll try to find the "Word as the Editor" feature in Outlook and see if that helps. By the way, thanks for the suggestion!
In the meantime, any explanation/additional suggestion for this annoying problem is anxiously awaited!
MS word 2002 --copy and paste function not working
Not sure if anyone answered this issue but I am having teh same problem. I have MS Word 02 XP pro.
Can copy and paste within Word but cant copy from the outside into word eg from an email.
It just started happening. I was happily doing it for years...did I press some weird key combo?
Can anyone help?
Re: Cannot paste into Word
Did you try all the existing solutions in this thread?
- And are you sure you can't paste at all? Can you try a Notepad file as a source. That's the most simple one available.
- What happens if make a new Windows XP account and try it there? That would point to a problem in your account, not in MS Word per se.

Instructions from my brother... ;)
The following instructions worked for me:
"Restore Show Desktop Icon to Quick Launch on Taskbar
If the Show Desktop icon is deleted from Quick Launch, the procedure below will recreate the file.
Open Notepad and enter the following text:
Save the new file as Show Desktop.scf then drag and drop the icon on the Quick Launch bar or whatever location you want the shortcut to appear."
Hope this helps and works for you!

THANK YOU for your help you are what makes this a great site!!
You're welcome, Neil!
Seldom I get such compliments! That little "Show Desktop" in in the Quick Launch Tray is indispensable for me.
Lost task bar icon
Although I got great suggestions and they worked!!!
The real answer here for XP or Vista is to click start,Settings slide down open task bar menu and under start bar menu make sure quick launch is checked click apply ok you are DONE.
I don't know why I missed it earlier but -------------
You don't always have to copy and paste into word.
There are many .pdf writers out there which you can just use to easily convert the website into .pdf.
No more worrying about copy and pasting
RE: Microsoft Word Cut-copy-paste-feature not working
Remove Windows Update: KB954464 - This is of course your choice but it will correct the problem, I suppose it re-opens the potential security risk that this update is designed to eliminate...
