Windows - Unable to make Copy/Paste

July 2017



Issue



Issue


Features like copy, paste and cut my files, it's not working on XP ( even when using the keyboard combinations, CTRL+X, CTRL+C, and CTRL+V).

Solution


It seems that your clipbook service is corrupted or disabled! All you will have to do is to re-enable it!

Try this:
  • Click on Start > Run
  • Type:
    Services.msc
    and press Enter
  • Enable these services:
    • Network DDE DSDM.
    • Network DDE.
    • Clipbook.


Restart your computer for changes to take effect! As from now you will be able to do Copy, Paste and Cut!
