I have the latest Mountain Lion release on a 2009 iMac.

I have recently encountered a problem that keeps bugging me. It's impossible for me to copy and paste a file in Finder. alt+Dragging will work, but CMD+C followed by CMD+V or going through the menus will not work.

Pressing CMD+C or going through the EDIT menu and selecting Copy seems to work, but Pasting isn't possible.


Does anyone have any idea as to how I can solve this?



Thank you,

iMac (27-inch Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
