Hi, my name is Luke, and this is why won't my laptop allow me to cut and paste. The cut and paste feature might be disabled in some websites that you're going to. This is not a problem with your machine, rather it's a security feature on the website and there's nothing you can do about this. However if you notice that cut and paste or copy and paste isn't working on your normal Windows functions, this error has been around and Microsoft is aware of it for some time. It only effects certain model and machines, certain laptops and under certain circumstances. However if you use remote desktop connections, this may be the cause of your problem. To check this, hit control alt delete, scroll down to task manager and then look for processes at the top tab. If you find the process named rdpclip.exe here highlight the process and then his end process. Next click back to the desktop and cycle out of task manager. Open task manager again, go to file, new task and type rdpclip.exe and then click OK. This will run a new instance of rdpclip and should hopefully fix your copy and paste issues. And that's it.
