hello,

I am using IE11 to open the SharePoint Online on o365 but I am unable to copy and paste anything in it. But I am able to do so in Chrome or Firefox. Can anybody help me for what could be the reason?

Thanks

Which zone is the SPO site added to and are you using compatibility mode? You should see the "Do you want to allow this webpage to access your Clipboard" prompt when pasting. If you are not seeing it, the default zone settings have been modified and you need to restore them. In particular, the "Allow Programatic clipboard access" setting. Details for example here: http://superuser.com/questions/476210/disable-do-you-want-to-allow-this-webpage-to-access-your-clipboard-message

Hi Vasil,

We have checked and all looks ok from our end, does O365 restrict to paste on SPonline?

Works just fine here for IE11, so I'm pretty sure the issues is with the configuration on your end. Either the browser settings as detailed above or some additional software installed on the machine.
