View Full Version : Allow Web Page to Access Your Clipboard . . .

I hate to keep asking all these questions but again with this new computer (Vista) When ever I hit post a pop up comes up and asks.

Do you want to allow this webpage to access your clipboard? *If you allow this the page can access the clipboard and read information that you have cut or copied recently.

* * [Allow access] * *[Don't allow]

I have hit both and it don't seem to matter but it is getting annoying for it to pop up every time I hit post or preview. *Just wondering if this happens to anyone else and if there is a way I can shut it off. >:(

It's a security property of Internet Explorer 7, not the operating system. Everybody hates it. ::)

Here's how to turn off the warning:

Heck there is nothing not to speak well about you. You have helped me out with fishing questions, computer questions and even helped me out with my cancer.
You are the man 8-)

Good sucking up MB ;D I'm sure the good Doctor will think about us this next week while he's on another vacation :o Ok, I guess he deserves it but gee, do we have to do it in public ;D ;D ;D I fess up, he helps me too ::) I guess the only thing that is left is that "fish identification" and he'd be just perfect ;)

*Sorry about that but that pop up has been driving me crazy for a few months now and I am so happy it don't do that anymore. *I thought I was going to have to live with that forever [smiley=computer.gif]

Reboot your PC to take effect.

You have to follow the directions exactly. I just had to re-do it when I wiped my computer. I stickied this post up on the panfish board because I was thinking I might need it some day in the future and this post might be gone.
