Internet Zone

Trusted Sites Zone

or

Internet Zone

I could not find an entry for

"Allow Programmatic clipboard access" (which is what its called in the Internet Options>Security tab, Zone, settings)

... apparently it is called

"Allow cut, copy or paste operations from the clipboard via script" in GPO.

This policy setting allows you to manage whether scripts can perform a clipboard operation (for example, cut, copy, and paste) in a specified region.

If you enable this policy setting, a script can perform a clipboard operation.

If you select Prompt in the drop-down box, users are queried as to whether to perform clipboard operations.

If you disable this policy setting, a script cannot perform a clipboard operation.

If you do not configure this policy setting, a script can perform a clipboard operation.
