Q: Ctrl + c, Ctrl + v copy and paste wont work.

??? I use this all the time and now its not working.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10 installed.

In Google search box, when I type Ctrl+Z( for undo), it does NOT work. Neither does Ctrl+Y( for redo). When I type Ctrl+backspace for deleting the preceding word, it works perfectly, but when I type Ctrl+Delete to delete the following word, it does NOT work at all. Kindly help me out of this problem.

In Notepad, Ctrl+Z( undo) works but Ctrl+Y(redo) does not. Neither does Ctrl+backspace(to delete the preceding word) but Ctrl+Delete(to delete the following word) works perfectly.

I don't know why some shortcut keys work and some don't. Please tell me how to make all these shortcut keys work in Google search box as well as in Notepad.

Yours sincerely

Yoga 2-11 Yesterday the CTRL-C, CTRL-X, and ALT-CTRL-DEL functions stopped working; strangely CTRL-V works fine. It's very difficult to get the @  and ? symbols to appear, but capital letters using the same Shift key are fine. Also, when I would type, several of the same letter would appear, and when pressing the space bar several spaces would appear. I fixed this issue by adjusting my keyboard settings by setting the repeat rating to the slowest setting. I've used device manager to uninstall the keyboard, also updated drivers, etc, but nothing seems to fix things. Using Windows Key R and OSK to display the onscreen keyboard, and using my physical keyboard for input confirms that the Shift and CTRL keys work. One thing that I noticed: when I touch the CTRL key a round onscreen circle appears and gets smaller and disappears; this is also true for CTRL-X and CTRL-C, but when using CTRL-V the circle does not appear.

Thread title pretty much sums it up: CTRL-A disabled, CTRL Key Works, A Key Works, Other CTRL-combos work. I use CTRL-V, CTRL-C, CTRL-Z, etc all the time.

CTRL-A has never worked for me, in any application. Instead of selecting all, CTRL-A pastes, the same as CTRL-V, only when you use CTRL-A, in addition to pasting, it also makes a system sound, kind of like a knock sound. Out of desperation to identify the sound I looked control panel sounds and listened to all of them, it's not there.

I've never really needed CTRL-A until now because I'm wanting to use a specific application that has no other way to select all except CTRL-A, so I'm now desperate...

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hi... I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 on my Dell Inspiron 1720 with a tricked out Firefox 3 with a bunch of extensions, and all of a sudden today I started notice that Ctrl + S and Ctrl + F, 2 keyboard shortcuts that I use ALL THE TIME, are no longer working in ANY APPLICATION. The F and Control keys are working fine separately and other common shortcuts such as Ctrl + C, V, A, O, and P are working just fine.

I've tried it in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Notepad, Paint and Dreamweaver and Ctrl + S and Ctrl + F don't work in either one of those applications. The weird thing is without doing much of anything, it was working at some point today after I had noticed it WASN'T working, but now I rebooted for another reason and those 2 shortcuts are not working again.

By the way, I went into Vista's Ease of Access center (previously called Accessibility I believe), and everything is turned off.

And I also tried the control key to the right of my keyboard. None of it works.

Very annoying... Anyone got any ideas or know of any app that will help me find out what the problem is?

Thank you very much in advance, any help's appreciated

I'm in a real mess since Lavasoft AdAware crashed my windows 7 home premium edit. 64bit after its 1st initial mandatory reboot. Everything is frozen, nothing can be clicked on or done in any way, shape or form. Even 'Esc' and 'Ctrl-Alt-Del wont work. PC must be shutdown manually. It also wont uninstall in safe mode. Once in safe mode the 1st time I got windows telling me that it cant uninstall this software in safe mode (this was done by its own uninstaller, and by the windows one, and by the Revo Pro uninstaller.) the 2nd time (reboot) it told me it wasnt installed properly. the 3d time it can't install in safe mode again. What now please? Anyone have an idea?

Thank you

A:Lavasoft AdAware crashed win7-Ctrl-alt-del wont work & it wont uninstall in safe mode

Sorry solved it. I'll write the answer should anyone need it someday. I believe my solution can help for other similar cases besides Ad-Aware.
A minute after I posted this a thought came to mind: Go into safe Mode and use msconfig.exe. So I ran it and unchecked everything to do with Ad-Aware. TO be even more sure I checked off not to run also other things that I knew would not be needed like anything to do with Apple, or Adobe. Afterwhich, doing a proper reboot Windows did actually start normally--no crash and I was able to uninstall it. Slowly I put back other services and start-up items and all is working fine now--so far at least ;-) Thanks for those who took a look and I hope it will help some people in the future.

So I just re-installed my Windows 7 and re-formatted my disk after getting the virus Win32:Sality. However, after I installed my graphics drivers and restarted my computer, the taskbar and icons wouldn't show. I can see my cursor and can move it. I can right click and get options as well. If I press Ctrl+Alt+Del, the screen just goes black. I can still see and move my cursor. This happened after I installed my graphics drivers.

Please help! Since a couple of days I have a weird bug in my Windows on my laptop:
the shortcuts Ctrl+C/V don't work for copy/paste, although the right click menu copy/paste do work fine. This however takes time and is annoying..
I suspected it could be a problem with my CTRL button, but Ctrl+A works fine, so that rules it out.

Does anyone have an idea what could have happened?
I have guests using the laptop now and maybe they pressed smth accidentally that locked this up..

Hi, be patient with me please

2 As will become obvious, I know nothing about the workings of a computer!

I have an Acer laptop that was running windows vista, it had a virus on it which wouldnt let me boot up but managed to get it going in safe mode and think I got rid of it.

When I boot up now, it almost immediately goes to a black screen, which reads

A disk read error occured
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

I have done as instructed and the same message always appears. I have no installation disks, rescue disks etc, just the laptop and that's it. If I press any keys, it just beeps loudly at me!!

Any chance of getting it going again and if so can someone help me and walk me through what to do or am I better off just taking it to a store and asking them to fix it. I am loathe to do that as money is tight having just been laid off.

Hello. I encountered a weird problem.

I recently bough Acer Aspire 5734Z with Windows 7 Home Edition installed. When I type CTRL + C or CTRL + V my touchpad stops working for a few seconds. Then it get back to normal. And Except this the functions of ctrl + c and ctrl + v works.

This happens all the time, no matter how much I copy, I can copy nothing doing just the combination and my touch pad freezes.

When playing games as GTA Vice City I have problems using WASD movement at the same time as I adjust the screen(camera) with touch pad. Suddenly lot of combinations stop working, and I have to either stop walking around (WASD combinations) and use touchpad to adjust screen, then stop using touchpad and go back to using WASD.

I hope you understand. I am not very good at explaining things. And I really hope to find a solution to this.

When I did first-run of the laptop, the touchpad didnt have scrolling function working. So I went to acer.com, found my computer model, selected Windows 7 Home Edition and installed the newest touchpad driver 64bit. And it worked. Scrolling working. But freezing problems still occurs. And I think it might be some windows 7 anti multitasking function or something.

Hello, I'm a new member who has stumbled upon this place in a desperate search for a simple answer!

I am recording a macro (I can write adjustments, but don't generally try to write macro's from scratch).

I have tried to explain what I want it to do below (it works as I am recording it, but when I change data and then try to run it, the thing fails)

Select Sheet 1
Select cell B1
Copy cell B1
Select Sheet 2
Select Column B
Find (control-f)
Paste (ie the data copied from cell B1 in sheet 1, to be pasted into the find function)
Find next (so that the cell selected matches the data pasted into find)

The data in cell B1 gets changed, hence using the ctrl-c,ctrl-f,ctrl-v combo, but when recorded the "ctrl-v" part doesn't show as a paste, but rather a find for the data as it was when I recorded the macro (which as mentioned, gets changed by the user).

Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

Hi all!
I need help to use macros properly. It is my first attempt at doing this, and I don't understand what I am doing wrong.

I have found this thread which resembles my problem, but I still do not understand what to do

Basically, I have 2 Excel spreadsheets open.
One is List A, the other is List B (Master List).

I have worker codes in List A, and have to find them in the B list to assign them a code (1) in column M.

What I did was go in my first spreadsheet, and selected the first worker code. Then, I started recording my Macro from there.
Ctrl+C worker code
Ctrl+Tab to second spreadsheet
Ctrl+F to open find box
Ctrl+V to paste the worker code copied from before
Close the search box
Cursor now over Worker code, Move over to column M by pressing the RIGHT arrow 12 times (from A to M)
Type "1" and then Enter
Ctrl+Tab to come back to first spreadsheet
Down Arrow to move on to next worker code

However, the Macro looks like this :
Cells.Find(What:="A4WL7CPA3BRX5", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

A:Solved: Macro in Excel help! Using CTRL+V inside a CTRL+F

Macro recorder only record specific actions, not generic actions.
So you can't use it to repeat the steps for other cells.
You have to code it specifically in VBA.

As for your case you can have a lookup formula in column M of the Master list to do the check.

eg in cell M12 of List B, type
[List A.xlsm]Sheet1'!A:A,A12)

this goes to your List A first column to count the number of instances the value in cell A12 occurs.
Assuming there is no duplicate, the result is either 1 if found or 0 if not found.

If there are more than one instances in List A, the formula can be adapted to
[List A.xlsm]Sheet1'!A:A,A12)>0)*1

*1 will ensure that the result which is True or False becomes 1 or 0.

Just recently I'd been gone to work and my girlfriend was at home on the computer. She usually goes on myspace, xanga, facebook a lot and generally doesn't stray far from those activities. I got home and she pointed out the computer was acting weird.

When I hit ctrl+alt+del, the screen just gets a light blue sheen over it until I click and then it's gone with no sign of the task manager. Also in firefox I cannot use the ctrl keys. The left ctrl key when pressed immediately makes the font size in the window larger and larger and after 2 or 3 presses opens a new tab in firefox. The right ctrl key yesterday was opening a new tab going to gmail and today is doing a variety of things including going back a page and copying text to pages. I can't use any ctrl key combinations in any software without it doing something strange. In Azureus it opens a file's statistics for example.

The XPS 15-9530 keyboard requires that you hold the Function key to do home/end (Function+Left is Home and Function+Right is End).  That works fine, but I have found that if Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End are a bit finicky.  Specifically, the key order I have to press to do a Ctrl+Home is Ctrl then Function then Left.  If I do Function then Ctrl then Left, it only sends a Home and not a Ctrl+Home.  Is there any way to work around this?  It's a bit annoying to have my Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End fail so often while I'm retraining myself.

My remote desktop session does not appear to be sending the ctrl+alt+left (CAL) or ctrl+alt+right (CAR) combinations to the target machine.

Yesterday everything worked fine. I installed Windows Vista Ultimate 64 and could successfully RD to my laptop machine, which is running XP Pro SP2. CAL and CAR worked.

Today I installed SP1 on the Vista machine. Now my RD won't sent CAL or CAR.

I downloaded a simple keyboard tester application and installed it on both machines. Locally on the Vista machine, CAL and CAR are detected. Same thing locally on the XP machine. When I RD from Vista to XP and try the keyboard test the program shoes that it is receiving the CTRL+ALT combination but doesn't register when I hit the left or right arrow key at the same time. Interestingly, the up and down arrows *do* register.

I tried the RD connection from XP to Vista. Everything works normally. I tried an RD connection from another XP SP2 machine to my laptop. It works.

Any ideas? Is there some sort of key binding in Vista that takes the CAL and CAR combinations before RD can get them? Is RD in Vista 64 filtering them out for some reason?

My colleague's pc suddenly would no longer respond when she pressed ctrl+p, then a day later she discover that her ctrl+f no longer works. We tried to reassign it, but it appears that ctrl+p and ctrl+f are still correctly assigned to the print and find commands.

We have tried deleting the ctrl+p keyboard shortcut and then putting it back in, but somehow when we press the ctrl button and the p together nothing happens (we can type in ctrl q for example, just not ctrl together with p).

When we press "reset all", the ctrl+p is back under "current keys", but still doesn't work.

This is happening in all applications. We have also attached a different keyboard and tried plugging it in different usb ports. All with the same result.

Has anyone got any ideas what might be causing this?

My newly assembled system is working fine with a few exceptions:

The sound in general is working and I hear lots of beeps and sounds here and there, but not on Ctrl-C (and Ctrl-V for that matter).

A:How to enable Beep on Ctrl-C (copy) command

When reading your question it's easy to think, "keyboard" but I think we need to think "Clipboard". That's the only place that your success takes place so I think you have to look at getting an audio notification of something pasted to the clipboard. If it's pasted successfully you hear a ding, beep or fire alarm.

The curious thing to me is why? I can't recall ever having a failure with keystroke copy and paste. It would be interesting to find a reg hack that would trigger the sound.

I don't know what's going on! I can't remember what keys I pressed but when I try to use some of the basic shortcuts auch as Ctrl+C to copy something, it will completely disregard the Ctrl and just write "c". Same happens with Ctrl+Z, V, Y, S and O and even when I use Ctrl to select multiple things or files!

When I want to select multiple files, I have to use Shift! The onley way I found for it to work is using the right Ctrl with whatever command letter I want.

Please help! I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate and I really can't remember what keys I pressed. FN seems to be working though!

Thanks in advance...

A:Keyboard shortkeys (Ctrl+C - copy, etc...) are all messed up!

Unfortunately the most likely reason for this problem is simply that your physical CTRL key on the keyboard has broken.

If that is the case, you basically have only 2 options.
You can ignore it, and grow accustomed to using the Right CTRL key.
Or you can replace the keyboard. Laptop keyboards can be bought from various places including Amazon and ebay, but it is clearly very important to get one that fits your model. Once you have a replacement, guides are available online explaining how to remove the current board and insert the new one.

I am using Office 2003 with Windows XP sp 3. Using ctrl - c to copy and ctrl - v to paste in Word has stopped working. It still works in Excel and other applications, such as copying and pasting stuff from the Internet, but I cannot use ctrl - c and ctrl - v to copy and paste in Word.

I can highlight text, click the icon for copy, and then press ctrl - v to copy and paste, but ctrl - c does not seem to want to copy.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Hi cdm, I've had this problem in the past and restarting the computer worked. I don't know why it seems to be glitchy with only certain programs and certain functions, but restarting seems to clear its head. Hope that helps.

Hey there,

I searched the boards, found a few things, tried them out but still not rockin. This cant be that difficult.
db called APM.
Table: tbl_MAIN.
tbl_MAIN Columns: [PK IDautonumber] [member number] [last name] [first name] [status] [box number].
Form: Manifest Creator (linked to tbl_MAIN)
Table: tbl_report

All of the rest of the items in the db are consequence of trial and error, are irrelevant and will be removed.

I want to use the member number field to manually key in the [member number]. While keyed entry is occuring the form updates the rest of the fields with that members info.

I have gotten this far. Need help with the following.

I want to have a control button on the form that will copy ONLY the currently viewed record to a new table and continue adding on that table with the individual records every time the button is pushed.

(I can handle the creation and assignment of the control button but need the logic behind it)

Later, when the user has completed the task, the new table will be used to generate a report that will list all of the entries made and will in the end be printed. I will also make it so that the new table is archived and an empty table is left in its place, ready for the next batch.

I need to create this app as a tool to create manifests and avoid manually keying as much information as possible.

I understand that an append query is probably the way to go but when I use the one I created it rounds up ALL of the records... Read more

Howdy,I created a post on the "Am I Infected?" thread back on 11/02/2009 and Mark (garmanma) has been helping me. He does not feel I am infected but stated I could always touch base this you kind folks so here I am. My task manager won't come up with ctrl+alt+delete, ctrl+shift+esc, start -> run-> taskmgr, or from right click on the task bar? We tried all kinds of neat little programs to see what was up but to no avail, however we didn't try the HijackThis route so I am hopeful. The previous post can be found at the following link provided (if you're curious as to what solutions have already been explored), http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...ml#entry1491790. The DDS and RootRepeal text files are attached as well, thank you so very much for any assistance you can provide. This site is wonderful and your team is the tops! I'm so bummed not having my task manager.

I have been using Microsoft Office Excel (2007) and the copy paste, copy Special paste functions have worked fined. Recently Copy paste does not work every time, the cell that I am copying from does not highlight and when selecting paste, nothing is pasted. When selecting Special Paset, I don't get all the options for copying All, Formulas, Values etc, I only get the option to Paste as Unicode Text or Text.

I tried the copy paste function in Word, this works but does not copy the format, only text is copied. I have restarted the computer, but this does not change anything. These functions have always worked in the past, this has only become an issue after I installed Firefox on my computer. I don't know if the two are related or just a coincident.

Before I re install MS Office, I would like to see if this can be resolved

Any support with this is appreciated.
