Can no longer copy and paste in email

Up until a couple weeks ago I had no issues using copy and past in email. I usually highlite what I want (url or text or even a picture), right click and copy. Say I wanted to send that information to someone. I would create a new email  then right click and paste. Currently the copy appears to work but when I go to paste the right click brings up a different pop up that dosen't even have paste as an option.  I have tried a different browser, different computer, had my wife try it on her account using chrome, same thing.  gmail works fine so I don't believe it would be the hardware.

I have not tried that. Sounds simple enough but when would I do that? Before I copy and paste or ????

Just tried it. Ctrl key +v did  as opposed to paste did the trick. Worked like a champ. Much appreciated.

The are many keyboard combinations that can be handy to know. Ex: Ctrl-X is "Cut", and Ctrl-C is "Copy". See https://www.google.com/search?q=keyboard+copy+cut+paste for the basics, and https://www.google.com/search?q=keyboard+shortcuts for a bunch of others.
