    Ctrl-C doesn't always work

    This is less common than the scrolling problem in my previous post, but it's not rare:

    Using win10 fully updated:

    I use Ctrl-C and then Ctrl-V still inserts what as already in the clipboard.

    I have to go back, hold down the Ctrol key and hit repeatedly the C key.

    OTOH Ctrl works just fine in other contexts and C always works well, but capital C and lower case. I never have problems with either of these, only Ctrl-C. This has been going on for years!!

    Windows 10 Pro for the Bro

    I have a wireless keyboard.

    Sometimes, when the USB transceiver that's connected to my Desktop computer "is out of range" from the keyboard, even though the keyboard is really close to the computer, the USB transceiver doesn't get all the keys that are pressed on the keyboard, and very rarely does it not type letters that I am typing. It's probably something close-by that's interfering. So I connected the USB device with a wire that I can move around whenever there's some sort of interference, and then it starts working better. (refer to the picture)

    Also, sometimes, new batteries are needed for the keyboard.

    Those are some of my suggestions, if it applies to you.
