I am running Windows 2000 Pro, Service Pack IV and I have lost my ability to copy and paste from Wordpad. What do I need to do to regain this functionality?

Hi

If this is only occurring in Wordpad, I would use Add/Remove programs>Windows Components to uninstall, then reinstall it, if the option exists.

However, there is a Microsoft article about the type of text you may copy into Wordpad here:

I don't know if it has any bearing on what you are trying to do, but it may help.

Good luck

Apparently I can only copy and paste in Rich Text Format. That explains why I was having problems.
