I am new to Surface and noticed the same thing. I thought it was a shortcoming. If I browse in the Modern UI IE and select text I get Copy option only. If I am in the Desktop version then I get more options. I checked IE options and found nothing that would help.Does anyone notice that the copy,paste,cut option on highlighted test on RT is gone? need to CTRL V,X,C now.
Before,I just click the text and the option appear but now its gone. Or its just me? Any ideas?
