Website: Do you want to allow this webpage to access your Clipboard?


If you receive this popup when working with MediaHaven in Internet Explorer:

For the embed function on the website we wish to be able to add the embed information into your clipboard (so you don't have to type this or work with CTRL+C and CTRL+V )

This popup only happens in Internet explorer. Other browsers like Firefox, Chrome, Safari have this option enabled by default.


The best solution is to add our website to the trusted websites. But another setting needs to be changed too.

In short this has to be changed:


This change can also be done by making a group policy:

    • add mediahaven website to trusted websites.
    • To control settings for script access to the Clipboard, use the policy named Allow cut, copy or paste operations from the clipboard via script. It should be located in the path:

      Local Computer Policy/{User Configuration, Computer Configuration}/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Internet Control Panel/Security Page/{Zone}

    • To control permissions for script access to the Clipboard on the computer for applications that host the WebBrowser control, we also have a policy named Enable cut, copy or paste operations from the clipboard if URLACTION_SCRIPT_PASTE is set to Prompt.

      The paths for this policy are:

      Local Computer Policy/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Application Compatibility


      User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Application Compatibility
