    @elbarna, y doesn't select. Did you use the mouse to select? Did you use an ex command like :1,96ya or :%ya? Visual mode, perhaps? How did you select and how did you paste? (What keystrokes?)

A solution from the StackOverflow:

:help 'viminfo'
 <       Maximum number of lines saved for each register.
 :set viminfo?
 :set viminfo='100,<100,s10,h
