    Copy,Paste won't work on 2 step verify for MS-hotmail Acct. login


    I do the User name, Password, chose which 2nd step verification (phone text, or send code to one of two connected email accounts {yahoo/Gmail}) using either of the emails I used to be able to just copy from the code sent to the email and paste into the "enter code sent" box I'm trying to log into on the 2nd step process, but right clicking w/mouse does not offer "paste" option.
    Anyone please explain why?

    No idea. It's probably a security mechanism to discourage bots.

    Did you try CTRL+V for pasting? (CTRL+C for copying).

    Why? Because right-clicking was disabled on the page.

    Why?
    Easy, it's because the Webmaster decided so. Ask her/him....

    I kind of forgot I had installed on Firefox an extension that might suit your needs. It's just got updated today.

    It's called Enable Right Click and Copy.

    Thanx for the update but I'm not ready to switch to Firefox though I might if I keep having issues w/google chrome, however that's another can of worms I'm opposed to, all these band aid fixes "AYAE" "Add Yet Another Extension" and wait to see what problems the new extension causes. Reminds me of Microsoft's typical response to repeated problems. Now I'm very very strongly considering Linux, just need to make up my mind on which Flavor of Ubuntu to use. First I will try Firefox for a while, just don't have the patience right now to go through the familiarity curve. Thanx for the info.
    P.S. A sensible person realizes that all principles that can be expressed in a statement of finite length are oversimplified. ~ Robert Heppe ...see now copy/paste w/the mouse worked. I think it is a security intervention by MSoft, sometimes they do use common sense, go figure...
    Oh ya, like your quote man! I'll use it and give you credit. Oops, guess not,, George Carlin, probably my most respected Comedian of all time. Toledo Windowbox forever...

    Actually I found it originally belongs to Mark Twain of all people, hmph? They were both great comedians using comedy to protest truth in our faces even if we didn't like it.

    I have noticed that this does not work on some websites.
