Copy and Paste in Word does not work

Copper Contributor

I have been having a problem with copy and paste. Then, the day before yesterday, it started work. But today, it stopped working. I cleared the clipboard contents, and also shut down the computer, and started again. Still, the problem persists. I believe this is a problem with the Word software. Please fix the problem.
