Re: Pasting problems in Word 2010

When you paste something into word, by default it keeps its original style, which, if you're copying something from one part of a document to another, is almost certainly what you want. If you are copying from a web page or somewhere else you might want to convert to plain text or something else.
In any case, when you paste something, a little hover icon thing appears and if you press CONTROL, that expands and you can choose the pasting style you want (the most common one I tend to use is control, then t (note you can't do it as one keystroke, you need to press control, let go then press t) to paste as plain text.
So yes, if the next thing you do after pasting is something that involves control, it looks like that gets grabbed by the paste options.
I don't have Word 2010 in front of me just at the minute, but in Word 2016 at least, if you go into options then "advanced" there is a cut and paste section and one of the options (it's alt+o but might be safer to tab to it just in case) is "Show paste options button when content is pasted". If you uncheck that, you won't get that control issue.
If you do that, you can still get to the extra paste options by going to the paste option in the ribbon.
