Word Hangs on Copy

Copper Contributor

When i take a section of a Word 2019 document, selected with mouse and then hit copy and move the mouse to the location to be copied to, Word hangs.  I have tried everything except the Registry hacks.  Anyone have any idea how to correct this.

I have: turned off clipboard options, cleared clipboard history and content, tried the hack with the new document and adjusting markup, tried safe mode, tried winword /a, ensured its up to date, and tried keyboard troubleshooting.

@Losdt Does the issue affect all documents, or just one particular document.


If just one particular document, can you upload a copy of the document so that we can investigate the issue.


If it affects all Word documents, does it also affect other applications, such as Excel or Outlook?
