Copy to Wordpad Problem

By sralls ·
Good Day All !!
I have Windows 98, IE Version 6, and use Outlook Express as my mail program. I wanted to copy some instructions to Wordpad, highlighted the portion to be copied, right-clicked and clicked "copy", opened Wordpad, clicked on the body of the blank wordpad and right clicked,,clicked on "paste" However the document was not copied onto Wordpad.
Any tips?
Thanks
Steve

I do not wish to use Word, I want to use the Wordpad, but I tried Word, and got an error when I attempted to paste the information into the body of the Word Screen.Error not specified.

Is this from HTML content e-mail?
I have seen HTML content that doesn't copy.
This often happens when the content is in an image type file, or uses a font that you do not have installed.

My e-mail is HTML,I don't know what the sender's email is, it wasn't an attachment, just a regular message. Is there any way I can fix it ?

Select your e-mail and try to save as text file from file menu.

There is no save as text file on the file menu !! I forgot to say that I can copy and paste to Notepad, not not to Wordpad!

Regarding answer 4: Save as exist! And if you can paste in notepad also you can then save and open with Wordpad. I think that your Wordpad instalation is bad.
