Default Odd copy/paste issue -

I have a weird issue, which I've never seen before.

About a week ago I copied a few sentences from an email to paste into a word doc.
Now, today, when I copy any new text and try to paste it into a word doc, that old week-ago text is pasted instead of whatever I just copied.



If I select the clipboard icon and click on 'Keep Text Only" my desired new copied text replaces the old.

It's very annoying while I'm trying to do research notes grr.

Thanks in advance for any ideas -

I would try:
1. Restart the computer if it hasn't been restarted in the last week
2. If problem persists, start Word in Safe Mode and see if problem still persists.

The old dogs don't need to learn new tricks if the old tricks still work
