I can't copy/cut and paste in Word 2003. When I right-click, all the buttons are grayed-out. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V don't work, either. The clipboard instructions say something about a highlight tool, but I can't find that. I have tried SafeMode, and that doesn't help. I haven't found any viruses or malware. I can't copy/cut and paste in Notepad, either, if that suggests something to someone. Any ideas?

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DELETE THE POST, BUT I SOLVED MY PROBLEM.

Have you tried to highlight the word and choose "copy" from the menu "Edit" on the top?

Thanks for your reply, but I figured out what I was doing wrong.

I didn't know that there is a "Select All" option in the Edit drop-down menu. I also didn't realize that when you right-click to cut or copy, you have to do it on the text itself, not just on the page. Pretty basic stuff for most computer users, probably, but it was new to me.

I guess that the topic stays for others to see in the future, in case they face the same thing... That's a fundamental reason for a FORUM to exist. It didn't matter how easy or difficult was to solve your problem!

Thanx for sharing! :thumbup2:

You're welcome. Good point about the Forum. You should know about Forums, since they originated in your country 2500 years ago, as I recall. :busy:

That would be off-topic (not a secret), so check your P.M. :wink:
