Check the Training section for Photoshop of this web site.

Check if the Caps Lock key is on

Warning; you will lose your settings so might consider to make a backup first
 

FAQ 6: How can I copy an image from another document to my current document?

 
Just drag the image to your current document. If you have to copy more than one layer; put all the layers in a layer set first and then drag the layer set to your document
