When connected to another computer from my W7 machine using Remote Desktop Connection, I can't seem to copy or paste (not sure where the problem is) from the connected machine to my W7 machine. Am I missing a setting somewhere? I have Share Clipboard option checked as well as sharing drives and printers options checked. Any suggestions/

I don't believe that W7 has a built clipboard. Can you copy and past with something like word pad or note pad.
