Now that I almost disconnected our file server, I need to ask the question:
Has Microsoft changed how the Clipboard works?
I am currently working on our IT documentation. I needed to verify that a certain setting has a certain value. So I fired up my PowerShell as an Administrator on my local computer and entered a PSSession to our file server.
I ran some PowerShell commands (only
Get-s), marked some of the output and right-clicked to copy the marked text. You must understand, copy & paste is one of the things I am most experienced in and I even put it into my CVs with great success! I am doing it for years now …
So, I right-clicked again to paste the text right after
| fl. But it suddenly pasted the following line I copy-and-pasted earlier from/to our IT documentation:
New-NetIPAddress -InterfaceAlias "Ethernet" -IPAddress "10.0.0.6" -PrefixLength 16 -DefaultGateway "10.0.0.1". Gladly I was working on the same server the command belongs to.
This is not the first time that this happened on Windows 10! It seems they changed something in the clipboard functionality. At first I thought that processes that I run as Administrators use a separate clipboard for security reasons, but I still am not able to reproduce this weird behaviour. It just happens from time to time while working with Windows 10.
