The system is notebook computer with Windows Vista, Microsoft Works v 9 and using the spreadsheet application, browsers Firefox and a chrome type browser.  I try to highlight an email address from an email in Gmail and paste into a cell of a spreadsheet document (using MS Works v 9), but it does not work; no paste of the text occurs; the menu under Edit neither shows Paste as active (it appearing grey, not black).  Not any different using Firefox versus chrome type browser. 



On the other hand, I can Paste the attempted copy of the email address into Notepad, click Edit, click on Select All, click on Copy,  and then I CAN paste this into a cell of the spreadsheet document. 



What might be wrong?  What should I look for ?  How can I remedy this?  This problem has been happening for about a month now.
