    Windows XP ... I'm trying to copy from a website page and paste to the 'normal' Document1 (Microsoft Office Word 2003) and nothing happens. :confused:

    Welcome to TSG!

    Some web sites do not allow the copy function to work. Have you tried other sites? I know that the song lyric sites that I go to don't allow copy, but a print screen cannot be stopped. If you use the Alt key and PrintScrn, you will copy only the active window to the clipboard. You can then paste that into either Paint, Word, Outlook emails, etc. I use Paint as then I can crop out the parts that I don't want and save it as that.

    Thanks, TooBad! You're right; I can copy and paste some things, but not others. I like the AltPrintScrn advice ... thanks! Much appreciate your prompt and helpful response.
