Unable to paste onto challenges, is hat normal?


I am unable to paste anything into the challenges (right click on mouse, just gives copy & cut options), is this normal?

Nb I’m stuck using Microsoft edge at the moment, which doesn’t recognise some challenges, and I have to borrow a laptop with chrome to complete, so that may be the issue?

More annoying than debilitating, but just wanted to check there was not a work-around.

Many thanks

These kind of bug can happen to anyone with any browser at any challenges, so it is normal. Your code passes the challenge for me. You can try to reopen the browser and run the code again or use a different browser and run the code.

Beg your pardon, I should have said it happens with all the challenges, not just this one.

Laptop is a bit iffy (why I can’t download Chrome) so maybe it’s just that.

Many Thanks


Hello there,

This is normal. The options to paste were removed to help encourage campers to learn without copy-pasting too much. However, you are still able to Ctrl + V to paste.

Hope this clarifies.

I can understand that, but I thought I’d check that it wasn’t me being a wally.

Many thanks


If you are using the current version of Edge, you should be able to do the challenges. freeCodeCamp supports Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
