Copy and Paste shortcuts CTRL C and CTRL V no longer work!

My HP Laptop running Vista 64 bit is driving me crazy because CTRL C and CTRL V no longer copy and paste in any of my programs. CTRL B still works to BOLD things in word, but the most needed shortcuts of all time won't work. Is there a place I can reset the shortcuts in Windows? Please help!

    I should have said this, but I already checked that and in Word CTRL + C and CTRL + V are already selected. According to Word, it should be working, but it isn't working, and it is failing in MANY programs, including Firefox, Gmail, etc.

Hi this is Naveen. I'm using hp 8gb pendrive. When I copied any files in my pendrive it is becoming shortcuts. After formatting also I'm getting the same problem. Please give me a solution.


Select the files then press CTRL + C (to copy).
Open the explorer window, go to the flash drive. Open the drive, then press CTRL + V (to paste).

Copy and paste


Thanks for posting your question here at fixya! ;)
You must select text (or some item in the document or content you are working with) to turn on the menu item you wish to use. On the keyboard, the keyboard shortcut for copy is ctrl+c, and the shortcut for paste is ctrl+v. After copying the item you wish to paste, (you may want to click into the area you wish to paste) use the ctrl+v to finish the paste function.

My file became a shortcut icon in external hard disk


That's because you probably hit "copy shortcut" rather than "copy". Go back to your file and hit Ctrl-C then once you're back in your external folder hit Ctrl-V. That will copy and paste it.

I don't know how to cut and paste my story on to my you tube web page


highlight the parts you wish to copy by selecting with left mouse button. Now hold the CTRL key + C key (thats the kb shortcut for copy)
Next, go to your webpage and use CTRL+P (kb shortcut for paste)
Sometimes the mouse function for cut and paste may not work with all sites..

Try this first and let me know..

Gateway SK-9922 Keyboard fastkeys don't work


You have a problem with your drivers. That keyboard is too old and I can not find any vista drivers. I can find XP and Windows 2000 drivers. The regular keys should work, but the extra keys that are not standard on all keyboards, like the cut, paste, and volume controls should not work.

If you want a keyboard to have those functions, then you need to buy a newer keyboard that has vista drivers.
