It sounds so simple, but I know of many Google Docs users that have wanted this functionality for quite a long time.
I am still getting the clipboard and I am an ebay poster this drives me nuts. I am getting carpel tunnel from having to do all the clicks to the clipboard
how aboaut an answer that applies to macs, and in chrome?
I cn no longer copy an image and paste it into an email; what happened? did I upgrade into something that doesn’t work? this is elementary; yes I know lots of ways around it, but I want to just swich my cc and paste it equally quickly AS I USED TO BE ABLE TO DO!
Thank you for the comment! You should still be able to copy and paste an image into an email on your Mac while in Chrome.
Select an image from the internet or your computer, CTRL+click on the image, and select copy image. Assuming you are using Gmail, CTRL+click in the body of your message and select paste.
Hopefully this works for you, Lisa. Let us know if you have any more questions.
I was accessing Google Drive in Chrome instead of FireFox, when I got a pop up that said now I could cut & paste using the mouse with the new Google Drive app. So I downloaded. Which was weird, because I already switched to Google Drive. I was able to cut & paste one doc with the mouse. Now it when I try to do that, I get a pop up that says in Edit I have to use the Control key. What gives?
Well, I kind of just answered my own question. In My Drive list I click open a document. Once open, I clicked on the File on the document menu tab. Then clicked Open again. Now I can cut & paste with the mouse. Messy operation.
you know how you can just copy a link and paste it then it will turn blue so the other people can click on it right away and just go to the website? -.- well everytime i do it doesn’t turn blue and the other person has to copy and paste the links again.
this just started happening a day ago…first time this has happened.
can you help?
I just discovered I have the same problem as Katherine. When I try to copy and paste a link it will turn blue and allow a person to just click on it to see the link.
When I use Internet Explorer this feature is still active and I can copy and paste a link that will allow a connection to it by simply clicking on it so it’s not my computer it is Google.
Soooo what is up with Google??
Chris and Katherine,
I’m not really sure why you are having that problem because that does not happen when I insert a link on Google Docs. Make sure that you post the whole link (including http://www). Then press enter and the link should turn blue. Once the link is blue, you have to click on the link, and then a hyperlink will appear underneath it. When you click that, it should take you directly to the new link. If you still are having issues with this, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I turn on the active link feature that I no longer have in pasting a site’s link in my email? In my browser I need to copy and paste the url link in the top bar to go to the site. I use to be able to keep the link active in my email.
Nice Post thanks for admin.
