I have just purchased a wireless keyboard and mouse to use on with my Macbook air. The control c and v buttons aren't working. Can anyone help with sorting this problem?

I have no idea. I came here because it is an HP product but couldn't even work out which forum to go in. Everything else seems to be working between the keyboard and the laptop. The Control function works for everything else.
I've googled and am only getting turn off and start again options which I have tried.

I guessed it was a HP product, even though you don't happen to mention it.
AND without knowing the product how can we help?
Some keys on some Apple keyboards have special symbols and functions. If these functions aren't available on your keyboard, you might be able to reproduce some of them by creating your own keyboard shortcuts. To use these keys as F1, F2, F3, or other standard function keys, combine them with the Fn key.
- Command-X: Cut the selected item and copy it to the Clipboard.
- Command-C: Copy the selected item to the Clipboard. This also works for files in the Finder.
So work out which is the COMMAND key equivalent.
Could be this....
Here are the five most commonly used special keys on a Mac and their Windows keyboard equivalents.

Oh dear..that was a major oversight on my part not to say it was an HP keyboard. Sorry!!
Thanks for the thoughts you've given me. From what you said I realised that on the apple it's command cand v so that may well be the problem. I'll see what I can sort out from that.
Thanks for bearing with me 🙂
