Users reported that certain keyboard shortcuts were unavailable in UWP apps. Now, this issue is fixed thanks to the latest Windows 10 build. Among the affected shortcuts there were CTRL + C, CTRL + V, and ALT + Space. These are all staple shortcuts, especially for certain programs.
It seems the problem occurred immediately after upgrading to Windows 10, as users report:
I’m happy with w10, upgrade from w7. But I having frustrations with copy/paste. It copies a segment from a web site okay but when pasting in an email it doesn’t appear. Is there a clipboard somewhere where I could store it? […]
I am using Edge and Outlook. If I’m on a webpage and wish to copy a paragraph, I highlight it, it turns grey, and I copy. When I go to paste in email I right-click and no drop-down menu. Nothing.
Then other times it works as advertised. Never had this problem with W7.
I have installed Windows 10 on both my Laptop and Desktop machines. On both machines I am not able to use the keyboard shortcut “CTL-V” to paste files in the File Explorer app. The copy, CTL-C, works OK.
Of course, I can “right-click” the destination folder and select the “Paste” option. However, it would be nice to be able to use CTL-V option to save a keystroke.
