Question about Computers & Internet

I can no longer swipe content by holding down my left mouse to highlight and copy

All of a sudden I can no longer left click and swipe/highlight content within my browser or the body of email content to copy and paste. I can highlight and copy may address but nothing in the browser window.


I am using ie 6 with service pack 3. I have concluded this is not a problem with my mouse. It works on other computers.


Thanks,

James Saunders

the preferred documentation or medium must be highlighted with the mouse cursor and a left click . hold the button on the mouse down while dragging the mouse across the screen

So now that your email address or text message or whatever you need copy and pasted is highlighted you need to copy it.

copy is achieved by holding down the control key labeled ctrl as well as the c button simultaneously - ctrl + c.

paste is then performed by left clicking with the mouse cursor in the area you would like to paste your selection. and Control + V

I am a relatively new pc user. I get some emails and sometimes they want you to click on the linkbut I am unable. Then they will instruct you to copy and paste This where I need some help


I could be more specific if I knew what you were using for email but here goes.

Hold your mouse over the beginning of the link. Press the left mouse button and hold it down, now drag it to the end of the link. The link should now be highlighted, click on the right mouse button and a menu will pop up, select Copy.

Open a new browser window and in the address bar (where it shows http:// ....) click on it once with the left button, the address should highlight. Click on your right mouse button and select Paste.
Press the Enter key and you should go to that link.
