Then in Facebook I MUST FIRST CLICK OR HIGHLIGHT WHERE I WANT TO COPY, AND THEN...right click, expecting to select "paste", but instead all I get is the pictured box.
AND EVERYTHING WORKS JUST FINE!

What I'd really love is to banish this box all together as I never use it.
see my BOLD edit above to explain my previous post.

Thanks to all for your patient explanations. Since the issue doesn't occur all the time, I'll try the suggestions and see if I can get a workaround routine going.

I really think most or all of it is due to facebook quirks, if that's where you always see it. I run into far more problems like that on FB than anywhere else.

Just as a follow up, hitting the escape key does the trick perfectly. Thanks so much for the help.

I haven't taken time to read the above dialogue.

But when I want to Copy and Paste, I just use the old DOS method of highlighting the data, then hitting Control and C for copy and Control and V for Paste. I will highlight then hit Control and X to Cut something and Control/V to Paste.

To print a document, I hit Control and P and then Enter--or click on Print in a box.
