Paint has stopped working right. It no longer allows me to paste. What’s wrong with it?

    Judy,

    Make sure you have the 'select' widget enabled, it's the one with the rectangle around it. Then you can paste.

    Is the copy paste works on other docs, or only on paint? if you have the difficulty for all then perhaps the clipboard is going wrong

    Maybe this microsoft fix it can help
