Hi kass825 , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


Would it be the same using an external usb keyboard prntscreen and onscreen keyboard

Would system restore revert back the functionality of those keys?


If both snipping tool and printscreen function do not work , try to proceed with this steps:

How to clear the clipboard in Windows 8. 


1. Press Windows Key + R to open Run window.

2. Type cmd /c “echo off | clip” andpress Enter.

You can also create a shortcut with location as the command cmd /c “echo off | clip”. Whenever you want to clear clipboard, double click on it.


1. Right Click in an empty space on the desktop and Go to New
and click on Shortcut.

2. Now Create Shortcut window opens. Now type the following text cmd /c “echo off | clip”. Click Next.

3. Name the shortcut as Clear Clipboard. Click Finish.

 Whenever you want to clear the clipboard double click on the shortcut icon. 


Otherwise disable tablet PC component.


Hope this helps.

Update us how it goes.
