Lost ability to copy and paste only in visual studio

I am in urgent need of advice on what is probably a very simple solution. I have lost Ctrl +C and Ctrl + V functions for copy and past while in the Visual Studio Coding Environment. I have tested it in notepad and it works fine, so the problem seems to be related to VS.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
