Enable or Disable Copy Paste in Application Guard

You can use Application Guard’s copy-and-paste feature to copy and paste text and files between the safe environment and your device.

This is helpful if you need to move files from one environment to another, but it also makes it more likely that you will move information that is bad for you. Turn off copy-and-paste if you’re working with sensitive information or going to dangerous websites. Data breaches and other security issues will decrease.

Follow this guide if you want to Enable or Disable Copy Paste in Application Guard.


Press Win + I to open Settings.

Go to Privacy & Security and select Windows Security.

Choose App & browser control.

Select the Change Application Guard settings option.

Toggle on the Copy and paste switch.

Press Win + R to open Run dialog.

Type regedit and hit Enter.

If you don’t have the Hvsi folder, right-click on Microsoft folder and select New and choose Key.

Rename the new folder Hvsi.

Double-click on the EnableClipboard and change the value to 1.

If EnableClipboard is unavailable, right-click anywhere on the right-pane and click New. 

Choose String Value and rename it to EnableClipboard.

Your device is safe from harm because of Application Guard. But you can’t copy and paste text as much as you’d like to. By following the steps, you can quickly turn on or off copy-and-paste in Windows 11’s Application Guard. You can copy and paste text from Application Guard to the host device with this feature. Disabling it gives the most security because it stops malicious data exchange from happening.
