Why I use Chrome – Copy and Paste

I use both chrome and edge depending on the situation but one reason I use Chrome is the copy and paste issue with Edge.

What is the reason behind this glitch / issue?

Is it only Edge or is there other programs?

    <p>Does the copy paste issue still exist in the Creators update?</p>

    <p>I experience it across all UWP Programms. I noticed a difference between using Ctrl+C and Right Click Past sometimes one works and the other dosn’t.</p>

    <p>As someone already mentioned, this is a problem across anything UWP. Even Windows Search/Cortana which in annoying as f*ck.</p>

    <p>As someone whose muscle memory is completely ingrained with CTRL-X/C/V, I never noticed this until reading this post! :-)</p>
    <p>With the direct Windows keyboard shortcuts fully functional underneath, why this is missing from the GUI is completely baffling.</p>

      <p>When copying from Edge and pasting into Excel, Excel will freeze and sometimes crash.</p>
      <p>I don’t get this issue with Chrome into Excel.</p>
