Clipboard shortcomings....or mine! : LUSENET : Windows 98 : One Thread

Using Paint Shop Pro on a 1Gig, 512Mb Ram, 30Mb HDD, etc. I find I cannot Copy an image file of, say, 9Mb and Paste it back. The PC freezes and only a restart will allow escape.

It appears the Clipboard will not accept this size of file but I have no trouble with smaller file sizes.

Can anyone please explain and, possibly, tell me how to overcome this apparent shortcoming of the Clipboard………….or my use of it!


Surely the PC is able enough to handle this sort of thing.
