After installing the OnVUE proctoring tool for the AWS Pearson Vue exam on macOS Ventura 13.5 (22G74), the Universal Clipboard (copy-paste functionality between Mac iPhone) stops working. Even after uninstalling the OnVUE tool, the Universal Clipboard remains non-functional.
Follow the steps below to resolve the Universal Clipboard issue:
- Ensure that you're logged in to iCloud with the same account on both the Mac and iPhone.
- Verify that Handoff is enabled in the system preferences.
- Open the Terminal application on your Mac.
- Enter and run the following command:
defaults delete ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.coreservices.useractivityd.plist ClipboardSharingEnabled
After that, enter and run the subsequent command:
defaults write ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.coreservices.useractivityd.plist ClipboardSharingEnabled 1
The Universal Clipboard functionality should now be restored.
