Why does WORD empty my clipboard ?
« on: 17/03/2006 22:15:13 »
Ok Darlings,

here's one for all you computer geeks out there.

Why is is that when I open up Word, it empties my clipboard ?

In other words, I have copied a load of text to edit, I open up Word..BANG..it's gone !!..once Word is open it's fine , I can copy and paste till the moo cows come home !!

Does anybody else have this happen ?

Thanks

Men are the same as women, just inside out !

I do and I am useing Office '03. It seems that after 10 or so years Microsoft still hasn't fixed this "bug". Makes you believe in big buisness, doesn't it?


If I only had a little humility, I'd be perfect.
