Yahoo Groups

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit asnd I use IE10.  While looking at one of the messages in the group, I tried to highlight all the text, then hit a Control C and then tried to paste it to an open document in Word 2007, but despite several attempts, I could not do this.  I am at a lost what could be wrong, hope the experts can please let me know. Thank u

Hello,

Two possibilities.  Maybe corruption with the clipboard.  Can you copy something from another page and paste into Word without issue?  When pasting into Word, try right-click and choose a different paste option such the one without formatting.

The other is that maybe the page did not render correctly in IE10.   In IE, press Alt+T on the keyboard to call the Tools menu and go to Compatibility View Settings.  Add that site to the compatibility view list and then close.  The page should reload in compatibility view.  Try copying and pasting again.

in response to rigeven2002, I copied a word text, then copied onto the document, and it was able to todo it.  Then I tried the same thing in Yahoo, copied the whole  text, and tried pasting onto Word, but it did not do anything.  The hour glass came up,
I tried highlighting all the text at yahoo then doing a Control C, and then a Control V onto word, but nothing happened.
Then I tried a right click copy and then a right click paste onto word, also nothing happened.
I have no other apps open except for Word, IE and Outlook.

may I suggest to try just part of the message first (only text)... then add more to see where it blocks.

the doc below is text copied from one of my yahoo messages to word
(MY config:Word 2010, Win7 home premium, 64bt, ie10).

when pasting text you have 3 options
keep source formatting (k)
merge formatting  (m)
text (t)

Select Text  or press t

I forgot it is different for Word 2007.  I have attached screenshot.

Click on the Paste Arrow under the icon to click Paste Special.  Then in the box, choose Unformatted text or Unformatted Unicode Text.

paste unformatted

in response to everyone, I am not sure why this is happening.  I can copy text from word and paste it back onto the document.  But I cannot seem to copy anything from Yahoo groups email message, even a phrase and then paste it onto my word document.  
Can this be related to any security issues.  I use IE10.  My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit.
Or is it that this particular group does not allow a copy of their messages - I am just listing out all the possibilities.
Thank u.

Is this an open group and can anyone see the messages or members only? If I anyone can read the messages, could you post a link please?

Ok can you try pasting the text into Notepad?  If that works, then recopy it from Notepad and paste into Word.
