It seems that you have activated click lock. The best way to resolve it is you restore your computer
Restart the computer in safe mode
Log in as administrator
Restore the computer to a date when it was working fine
reboot in normal mode
this should resolve your issue

How to copy and paste


left click once on what you want to copy one item
hold down the left mouse button and move the mouse over the desired text you wish to select to copy and then let go of the left mouse button
so it is highlighted and then
hold down CTRL key and press C to copy
Hold down CTRL key and press V to Paste
Assuming it is a windows system
If it is apple the apple key and C I think does copy
Any edit tab option on the program usually has copy and paste
You can also use in Windows the right mouse button to bring up a menu where copy and paste are options to select.
If you are copying files you can also use CTRL A for select All
CTRL to select more than one item
Shift to select a range of items
if Windows
If you are using ubuntu the shift key plus CTRL plus V must also be used when pasting into the terminal window.

How do i delete in wordpad?


Highlight the text you want to delete by holding down the left mouse button and dragging the mouse pointer over the text, then let go of the left mouse button.

Now you can just push the DELETE button or the BACKSPACE button on your keyboard.

Or you can use your mouse to place the mouse pointer on that section of highlighted text and then click the RIGHT mouse button once. Then select CUT from the drop down menu options. This will delete that section of text.

Good luck.

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.

How to delete multiple things off my acer laptop at the same time


A good place to start is...

Start>Run>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs

You can uninstall lots of programs here.

If you are trying to delete, lets say a bunch of files at once, here are some useful shortcuts.

Ctrl+Click will highlight everything you click on then you can hit delete once.

Click one item then Hold Shift+Click to select all files inbetween your first and last click.

Drag a box with the left mouse button to highlight multiple icons/files then hit delete.

Mouse has lost its grip! (electrical grip, that is)


ok. i see your having great time using that mouse and you cared that device for several years. Try open your mouse and carefully remove these buttons of your mouse to clean those dirty stuff stacked on those linings( I believe that you haven't done this before, right?). I believe that this will need to clean a bit to give it back on track again.
