We've noticed issues where the Windows RDP server stops responding to clipboard requests - this causes clipboard syncing to stop working in RDP sessions occasionally. The easiest way to get it working again is to log off the remote user and then log back on - this always fixes the issue. However, if you can't log off the existing session here is a faster / quicker solution contributed by a Jump Desktop user:
Solution to copy paste not working in Remote Desktop
I have seen that copy pasting and clipboard sharing may fail to work correctly at times. There may be a variety of reasons for this including mis configuration and incorrect settings. However, one of the common reasons I have seen is the rdpclip.exe going out of sync in the rdp sharing chain. If this is the reason for the copy paste not to work, the quick solution is to restart the rdpclip.exe program in the remote computer.
Here are the steps:
1. Kill the process rdpclip.exe using the task manager in the remote computer
2. Go to RUN command and start the application rdpclip.exe
Once the rdpclip.exe is relaunched, you should be able to copy paste using clipboard from the local computer to the remote computer. (If you are a novice Windows user, you can find detailed step by step instructions here (http://www.mywindowsclub.com/resources/5607-Copy-pasting-clipboard-not-working-Remote.aspx ).
However, if the copy pasting never worked for you in your RDP session, then this is not the solution. Instead, make sure you have done all the steps correctly, including enabling clipboard sharing as mentioned in the original article here.
After killed and restarted rdpclip.exe in remote windows server, the functionality of sharing clipboard is back, very helpful for me, thanks.
Have seen this bug since Windows XP, still happening on Windows 10... Amazing
@Federico Unfortunately this is something that's difficult for us to fix on our side. The remote machine's RDP clipboard server stops responding for some reason - we don't know why this happens. Jump on the client side, can't do much to fix this.
This was the fix for me
For my closing the jumpdesktop windows from client and reopening it again, solves the issue.
I have the same problem with a Fluid connection after the latest Jump Desktop update.
I also have the same problem with a fluid connection (like msgreenfield1 does). This is not just happening with RDP connections, and has happened since day 1 of using the app several years ago, with or without the fluid connection feature, no matter what version of Jump Desktop.
This does work for text. However, images do not copy/paste.
This helped. Thanks! Not sure why it's suddenly happening on multiple computers though.
