It seems the copy & paste function of Performance Monitor on Windows 8 isn't working. I can't get this simple case to work:
- Launch Performance Monitor
- Copy the default % Processor Time counter to the clipboard
- Remove the counter from Performance Monitor
- Paste the clipboard contents back into Performance Monitor
The result should be that the % Processor Time counter should be back but it's not working. I can even paste the copied counter onto other non-Win8 machines and it works but not on a Win8 machine. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?
