Am new here and already frustrated having navigated away without saving needed info in order to return to a specific set of questions and answers
Re: disabled 'cut, copy, paste et al' dropdown that might be corrected via the >start>run>regedit(?) routine ;-)

Have XP3 and IE8, updated as recently as this morning ;-)

And, I definitely lack the necessary skills and familiarity to cope with this site ;-))

If someone has the time and talent to assist in this search I'd be most appreciative !! ;-))

So farewell for now, and I do hope I can manage to return;-))

Thanks for the reply
Yes, I still have the problem, and am still fussing because I wasn't alert enough to capture a solution of interest while I had the chance. I've gone through the past couple of years of posts, and didn't find it, and suspect I either missed it or was in the wrong forum;-))
The solution seemed straight-forward and uncomplicated and involved regedit et al.

Hi
I don't get the cut, copy and paste drop-down when I right-click. Am using XP3 and IE8. I do get a much larger dropdown, headed with Back & Forward(grayed out)

In IE6 I'd been able to highlight any url in the browser, or material on a webpage, and use the edit button to copy and paste. Not so in IE8

There was a post here when I first arrived, unregistered, and in registering, I lost track of the post that seemed to have potential as a solution.

I've back-tracked a couple of years without success. May even have been in the wrong forum.

The possible solution had involved regedit, and that poster's similar problem had appeared after a windows update - as was the case with me.

Also, I think I've thoroughly confused the issue because I haven't quite sorted out the post and response conventions here, so my apologies to one and all.
Thanks

If someone can sort out my posts, as best they can, I'd sure appreciate it;-)) I bet everyone else would, too. I don't know where they belong - XP3 or cut, copy, paste, etc, or elsewhere. It's obvious I'm a reluctant user of IE8.

And I can't find the option to have replies emailed ;-(( but I did find an acknowledgement in my email which I hope can be repeated ;-)

Hi: If the following links won't work for you
then my advice to you is to Revert back to IE 7 & Use the Fastest Browser in the world Opera Version 10.00 (Tested)by me as a second Browser
Remember you can keep IE 7.0 as a default Browser & use Opera V 10.00 Free-ware as a second browser

Hi Greenfield and Graywolf
Hmm-m, are you sure there aren't any more suggestions? ;-)) Seriously, thanks to you both, and whoever else has made this exchange possible.
I can now cut, copy and paste, as well as file>open page ;-) Sort of a 'walking on water' sensation ;-) All I can hope for at the moment is that this thank you note ends up where it should ;-)

as far as navigating this site: No, we don't reply directly to your email address. No forum does. Posting email addresses is a welcome mat for spammers.

Another way to solve problems:
Since millions of folks worldwide use Windows, your problem has occurred many times before. So instead of searching just this site, you can Google your problem: "IE8 XP lost copy-paste." Google comes up with either tech help sites or forums where folks have torn their hair out over the same things since time immemorial. I believe that's what Greenfield does. But you can also do it and skip the Tom's H part. Not that we're not great :)  , but teach a man to fish, and etc.

I totally agree; in fact, 'googling' is how I found Tom's Hardware ( so there's proof of your point);-) In the meantime, glitches are reduced in number and size. It's good to know there's a haven for help. FB

W7 IE8 could not copy and paste from opened yahoo email in inbox.
Tools, Internet options, Security, Custom level, Miscellaneous, Drag and drop or copy paste files which was Enabled.
I disabled it and then enabled it.
Now I can copy and paste from yahoo email text.

The info in this forum regarding checking if the Drag and drop or copy and paste was disenabled helped me solve my problem.
