Never mind - it's just a bad keyboard. The control key doesn't work at all.

I'm using Windows XP on a dell PC - it's a couple years old now.

All of a sudden I can't use "control+c" for copy, or "control+v" for paste, and I've just noticed I can't seem to use other "control+" shortcuts either (control+backspace, etc.)
This is happening when I'm in Word (2003) as well as on the internet (Netscape 7.0).

I've shut down and started up again and the shortcuts still aren't working... any ideas?

Thanks

Drag and drop enabled May 12, 2005

I had that once.

Have you enabled dragging and dropping?
Right-click on the Start menu
Select Properties
Start Menu tab
Customize button
Advanced tab
In the scroll menu, see that "Enable dragging and dropping" is checked.

thanks for that advice - in my case it turned out to be a bad keyboard, but your idea may help someone else.

really makes me appreciate that control key!
