OneDrive "copy" button does not work

Ruben Ponchateau IT 21 Reputation points


I am currently using OneDrive version 22.225.1026.0001

And I noticed that the "copy" button does not work anymore.

Let's say I right click on a file and then select the "share" feature, a pop up window shows up giving me the opportunity to select who I want to share the file with and then copy the link.

The thing is that when I click on the "copy" button, nothing actually happens since the clipboard remains empty...

    You could try the following workarounds:
    While the link is selected (in the share window) simultaneously press the keys CRTL and C on your keyboard. This should enable you to copy the link to your clipboard
    Alternatively you could right click the selected link and check if there's an option to copy the link

    Finally you could also go to and check if you could share properly using the website (web-interface).

    Hope this helps!

    Could you please try this: Control Panel > Internet Options > Security tab > Custom Level > “Allow Programmatic clipboard access” set to Disabled and if enabling it resolves the issue or not.
