    copy and paste on virtual box doesn't work

    hi
    i want to know how to make virtualbox with windows 10 on ubuntu to allow to use the copy and paste functionality.
    i've tried several ideas that were suggested online but it is still not working....

    i've some other problems with it too....

    if you need my hardware specifications tell me and i will look up on how to check it.


    thank you!!

    You probably need to install the Guest Extensions in Windows 10.

    Alternatively, you can RDP to the guest and access it that way which is probably easier (I'm assuming a bridged network setting in the guest so it gets an IP from your router's DHCP pool)

    I assume you have selected the necessary in the VM settings as in my screenshot?
