weird problem I came across with Windows 10, when I try to highlight things with my mouse it does not work all the time. When I had Windows 7 I had no issues. Has anyone come across this at all? Points will be split up for everyone's suggestions.

I have a ThinkPad X230 with Windows 10. I can use the built-in TrackPoint, a Logitech Bluetooth M557 mouse. a very old Logitech roller ball mouse with unifying receiver and cut/copy/paste all work flawlessly

I have a ThinkCenter M93 with Window 10, and the Lenovo Mouse and the Logitech M310 mouse with unifying receiver and cut/copy/paste all work flawlessly

Clients with Windows 10 and Logitech M310 or like all work.

Try a different or a newer mouse.

That should be good enough. Can you try an old fashioned USB mouse to check?

What kind of computer?

I would try a USB mouse to see.

Also look for BIOS, Chipset and Video upgrades.

The video card is brand new as well as my screens. I will check on the bios updates. I have a gigabyte motherboard.

It this a bluetooth mouse? If yes then replace the battery. Otherwise as suggested already try usb cabled mouse. Maybe your mouse is defect.

Ok, then we know that the problem is NOT caused by the mouse. Is this a workstation or a laptop machine?

Edward, you should point out if CRTL-C CRTL-V works or not.

If you really think it is not  mouse issue, run a Windows 10 repair install from the Media Creation link

Latest update, an update for Windows 10 happened last night and it seems to be working for the moment. Keyboard CTRL-C and CTRL-V always worked, no issues there. Let me see how this goes for the next couple of days.

I never had an issue with copy / paste in Windows 10, but the updates in this week's patch Tuesday contained a number of bug fixes. I have that roll up running. Please keep us posted,
