Help Me With An Annoying Windows 8 Issue

Recommended Posts

I've got windows 8 (8.1 I think) on my tablet and for some reason when I'm on HPC (or any forum for that matter), I'm not able to use the quote functionality in any browser (IE or Chrome). I suspect that for security reasons copy and paste is disabled in the browser (C+P doesn't work either) and that the quote facility is just an auto-copy paste in some way.

Copy and paste is absolutely fine in every other application. It's only the browser I have an issue with. Can anyone help?

It's the same for me on my Blackberry too. It's probably some special feature to dissuade us from spouting shite from roving locations.

I think this is a security feature. Do you use any security software? Some software specifically disabled clipboard access for browsers (this is a security feature, but it does seem a bit overzealous to have it defaulted) - have a look in the settings.

Some people have found that "bluetooth send" on outlook is enabled then it stops c&p working elsewhere in windows including IE (seems mad, I know) - it is in the options/add-ins menu in outlook.

I think it's a bug/incompatibility in the forum software and/or IE.

It works in Windows 10 with IE11.

That said, by default, I have the reply box in plain text mode (top left icon above the reply box).

Then it always works.
