instead of pressing alt+f then right arrow, why not you just press alt+e for 
"edit menu"? then either arrow down to copy option or 
just hit "c" for copy.

hope this helps.

Hi, I highlight the file, then do alt plus f, then go to edit with right
arrow, and to copy and hit enter. Works, but a hell of a nuiance.
