    How do you copy and paste text in Vista??

    I currently got a tablet from gateway. But in Vista, it will not let you
    highlight text from a website to copy and paste it somewhere else. If you
    right click, it lets you select all. But in XP / or any other windows you
    could highlight any text on any website and copy it. How come I can't do it
    or how do i do it???

    In my case I can highlight-copy-paste from any application running under
    my Vista Home Premium.

    The problem I have is with MS Front Page or MS Expression Web and using the
    shift or Ctrl buttons to highlight certain blocks of text. As soon as I press
    one of these buttons, highlight no longer works. Also, if I start highlighting
    at the top end of a long piece, then I scroll down to the bottom end, place
    my cursor there, press shift before I l/click (to cause the highlight to
    continue to the new cursor location) the highlighting is undone.

    This only happens in these applications.

    I have Vista with the same problems you mentioned. I tried everything, and
    realize now the problem was with Microsoft explorer 7. There seems to be a
    flaw between Explorer and Vista. I finally had enough, and downloaded
    Firefox. The problem is gone. Hope this will help you as well.

    other ways to do this, if the page in question has attempted to block copy, is to move the site to high security zone, if the page still renders then the scripts will be disabled. or you could view page source and copy text from the html source.
    alternatively, you could respect the publisher's wishes to leave their material where it is or write to them asking for a copy.
