    Thanks. Ah, if I'd known it was an Insider build I wouldn't have answered on the principle that nothing is guaranteed and anything could happen..

    Very true and I do blame it. lol But a repair install didn't help, so. There's that. If I could just go back to regular windows without a clean install I would. But there's no way I'm ever doing a clean install unless the whole thing catches on fire and I just can't get everything back. lol If push came to shove and I could just use AHK and make it work that way.

    Perhaps the quickest way... at least to get it operational... looks as if this does it - ahk script too- see

    that ahk script only has ctrl v. Tried it and it didn't work. I'm going to try to find one with both. I tried the command prompt thing yesterday and it was, of course, already checked.

    I got the ahk to substitute ctrl+ins/shift+ins for crtl c/v. Works!

    Great - at least that's a practical workaround. Still begs the question as to what's gone wrong. Hopefully it will start working again on the next upgrade, unless it's an effect of 3rd party software.

    Sometimes a program can usurp standard hotkeys, but you see the same in Safe Mode, so it's not that.

    Have you seen this on rdpclip.exe? (Which does exist)

    Would you care to share the scripts that work in case they are useful to someone else? Thanks!
