copy and paste function in Win10 desktop computer not working properly (not touchscreen)

HP Recommended

When I copy something and then go to paste it, I get something I had copied before instead of the item I just copied. 
Sometimes I have to copy it 2 or 3 times to get it to work properly. What's going on? 
This was working fine, the problem started recently.

No one else knows either, huh? <sigh> I did search on it and discovered that a lot of other people are having the same problem

Hi @Meenie50,

Welcome to HP Forums, this is a great place to get support, find answers and tips.


Thank you for posting your query, I'll be more than glad to help you.

I understand that you are facing issues with the copy paste function wherein you need to copy 2 to 3 times in order to paste the document.

 

Let us know if it occurs with all application or only one particular one.

 

You may try creating a new user account and check from the link: Managing User Accounts and Logins (Windows 10)

 

Let me know how this works.
 

You have a good day ahead.
