    I do occasionally onforward jokes by email. This is what I do:

    1. Select (Highlight) the particular joke(s) I want to send
    2. While it is highlighted, hit Ctrl and C simultaneously
    3. Open the email I intend to send and position the cursor in the body (message part) of the email
    4. Hit Ctrl and V simultaneously

    I have never used Word for composing an email so perhaps your mileage may vary. However, I have not failed in a copy/paste to Word when the material to be copied has been selected and then used Ctrl + C to copy it to the clipboard, opened Word and used Ctrl +V to locate it in a document at the position of the cursor.

    If you have Windows 10, Click the Window key + Shift + S and select the area of text that you want to copy by dragging the cursor with your mouse, then paste that image into your email (Control+V)

    Hi Poppa John,
    Are you wishing to send the jokes by email or letter?

    On a Word doc then attach to an email. I have done it many times but cannot get it to work now, It should be easy to cut & paste but........ PJ

    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Going back to post #3 where you mentioned
    Paste is greyed out. no transfer
    As mentioned, This means the Copy portion has not worked/Taken.

    Can you copy /Paste from other places, Like another word document, Email etc ?

    No. I opened a new Word doc & minimised to the bottom task bar. I opened another Word Doc. Highlighted the text, which was grey rather than blue. brought up the dropdown & clicked Copy. Brought up new Word doc & clicked Paste. It didn't. PJ

    Text Doesn't always highlight in Blue. Generally a web text will, normal word Document for example will be Grey.

    Since it wont copy / Paste in a word Doc then its a general software problem common to both.

    Have a read of he following https://merabheja.com/solved-fix-cop...on-windows-10/ Suggest working through the Solutions.

    Could be some other problem as well. Sometimes its trial and error, Example another option ( bit hard to understand) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BV9soHL-OQA

    OK. I have not solved the problem of copy & paste to a word doc. I looked at Wai's links & decided beyond me. I tried to copy & paste onto an email, which I didnt really want, & it worked. So Iwill have to stick with that. Thankyou to all who have helped & been patient with me. PJ.
