Copy and paste functions (with the mouse) do not work
For some reason the copy and paste function (with the mouse) does not work at all on here. I'll highlight a text and then right click and nothing. Any ideas on why this is happening and what I can do to fix it?

Hello and welcome to TSG.I want you to run sfc /scannow for starters:Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to determine which file is causing the issue, and then replace the file. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
  2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow
    The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
Let us know how things go for you. )
