Internet Explorer Cut and paste in D2L

Brian Maj from the School of Accountancy and MIS has this tip to share with those lucky/unlucky users of Microsoft Internet Explorer:

Trusted Sites

“Several people have asked about pasting messages into Desire2Learn, when using Internet Explorer, such as for news items or other text boxes. I uncovered the issue and would like to share the fix.



  1. Go to the Start Menu > Settings/Control Panel > Internet Options.
  2. Select the Security tab.
  3. Select the button, Trusted sites, the green checkmark icon.
  4. Select the Sites button and type *.depaul.edu. Uncheck ‘Require server verification’ then click Add.
  5. Click Close and click Okay to exit.

This “fix” enables all sites associated with depaul.edu to be trusted, allowing functionality of pasting messages into D2L using Internet Explorer. The window will look like the one below.”
