i think actually it does copy but only jaws announce "nothing selected".

hmm, perhaps this is a known issue for jaws 8.0 user? i also facing the same 
problem some time. i wil try this two way to fix it.

1. reload jaws 8.0, some time this way solf my problem.

2. restart the machine, this way surely can fix the problem.

hope this helps.

BlankHello listers,

I have the latest version of jaws running on an xp pro machine with sp2.

While in windows explorer I have a text file selected and when I try to copy it 
to the clip board with control c I get told that 
nothing is selected.

But if I press the applications key and the context menu opens and I select the 
copy it does it.

Anyone have an answer to this issue?

Maybe I have a windows setting wrong or some jaws 8 setting wrong.

Don't have this issue with jaws 7 or earlier
