Title: IE7: Allow this webpage to access your clipboard?
Post by Rad on Mar 28th, 2007 at 11:55pm
In IE 7 the "auto-copy" function is disabled by default - but in older IE browsers, it's enabled by default.

If you are getting the message in IE7:

"Do you want to allow this webpage to access to your clipboard?"

See this thread for insight & a solution:


Or .. basically, the short version:

Ad Radified.com as a 'trusted' site by:
Tools > Internet Options > "Security" tab > (Click on) "Trusted sites" (Green check-mark) > "Sites" button > Select "Ad this website (Radified.com) to the zone: "

and then enabled "Allow Programmatic Clipboard Access" by ...

clicking "Custom level..." button (which is also located on the "Security" tab)
should now say at top > "Security Setting - Trusted Sites Zone"

Scroll way down (near the bottom) to
"Allow Programmatic Clipboard Access",
Click Enable.
Click OK.

PS - you can also disable the access, but it comes in handy to have your post (automatically) copied to your clipboard .. should anything go wrong. I have twice already taken advantage of this feature.

PSS - There is also a forum-based fix/patch for this, but I have not installed it (yet?):
