Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Windows has 2 sets of Copy/Cut/Paste shortcuts by default. The most common of course are Ctrl-C/X/V but Ctrl-Insert, Shift-Insert and Shift-Delete are also Copy/Paste/Cut respectively.

I've been using the latter set since they were available in MSDOS EDIT

In any case, the latter set don't work in the SE Data Exchange query editor. In fact, worse than doing nothing, pressing Shift-Insert toggles typeover - so when you do press CTRL-V, it pastes over the top of your query.

I'd suggest the functionality should be replicated (at least for Windows users - not sure if this is common on Mac/Linux).
