Copy/paste keyboard shortcuts not working?

Is anyone else not able to copy or paste into Quicken using the standard keyboard shortcuts? Crtl+C & CTRL+V do nothing for me, even though it works on literally every other program on my computer. Copying and pasting from the menus within Quicken still works.

    I just tried it and it worked fine. I did a copy from Notepad and a paste into the "Payee" field of one of my account registers. I used the keyboard shortcuts for both of these actions. I also tried the reverse (copy from Quicken and paste into Notepad) and that worked as well.

    If you haven't already, I suggest you verify you have Windows standard chosen for the Keyboard mappings in the Setup preferences: select Edit > Preferences...

    @KnnNike what are you trying to copy and paste?

    You can't copy and paste a transaction this way, you can only copy and paste fields with Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V.

    Nope, understood. It's the fields that aren't working. I can neither copy nor paste into individual fields unless I use the copy/paste command from the top menu or the right click.

    Well then I don't know why it isn't working for you.  It is working for me.

    Just a shot in the dark ...
    Are you running Quicken for Windows natively on a US Windows 10 or 8.1 PC?
    Or are you running Quicken for Windows in a virtual machine environment like Parallels on a Mac or Unix-variant?
    In the latter case, the VM may need to be (re-)configured to correctly pass thru command keystrokes to the Windows guest system ...
