    Copy & Paste

    Something just recently changed in Windows 10. I can no longer use the PASTE shortcut CRTL+V. To paste anything, I must use the right click and then click on PASTE. I generally use COPY (CRTL_C) then CRTL+V and it is done. Does anyone know how to correct this so I can use the PASTE shortcut again?

    Is it the same even after a restart?

    Make it sure that the Ctrl key is working properly. Like 'Ctrl+A' to select all etc commands are working properly.

    If it is not the problem of the keyboard, try a system restore to an earlier point of time.
