        Since updating to Win10 20H2, cannot paste text to apps and/or websites. The app is genealogy software Legacy; past command greyed out. The website is Family where passwords are protected by 1Password. Had to hand type user name and password as pasting was not available. Moments before I logged into Family Search in the mac environment and the pasting worked was desired. Would appreciate any suggestion(s) that you can provide. Thank you.

        Sounds like your browser won’t accept paste, not Windows.
        What browser?
        Have you tried copying data from Notepad and pasting into the browser / app.
        Have you tried other websites? (Use this test page)

        cheers, Paul

        Have you tried pasting with Ctrl + V rather than right-clicking?

        I’ve had this problem as well – for the longest time – until recently.  Didn’t matter if i tried copy/pasting to notepad & then into forum, etc. but it didn’t work.  I don’t know if a Windows/software update fixed the issue or how it was solved, but i can do it now.

        AAMOF, i just tried it now & it works!
