    Shortcuts for copy and paste stopped working in windows vista

    Hi.This is rani here. I am facing a weird issue in my windows 7 computer. Now i am not able to use shortcut keys for copy and paste i.e ctrl+c and ctrl+v respectively. However i am able to use this functionality through menu bar which means there is no problem with system.Do you have any fix for that?

    It is quite annoyning problem because now a days,most of us rely 90% on keyboard shortcuts. You can fix this issue by uninstalling your keyboard drivers and restarting your computer.For doing the same,click on "Start" button and navigate to control Panel>>Printers and Other Hardware>>Keyboard. In keyboard properties window,click Hardware. Now move to Properties and choose the driver.You need to uninstall it so click on Uninstall.Finally click on Ok button and restart your computer.

    This problem is often caused by an access rights management issue with the Java applet. The reason for this problem is unknown, and it is rare for it to happen, but it is easily solved.
    Solution
    • Make sure that the appropriate version of Java is installed on your computer, depending on your operating system
    • Open the Start menu and then Control Panel
    • Select the Java icon
    • Right-click on Open then select Advanced > Java Console > Show Console

    • Close the window by clicking Apply > OK
