I am unable to paste web page images into word 2010 - Selecting some text and images on a web page and pasting into word just results in a box on the page. The following question

says the solution is to use paste special and select HTML. This does not work when I try it. copying and pasting individual images does not work either.

"As for 2007 it is workin' perfectly." Not here. – user40865 Jun 24 '10 at 4:18
Do you use the CTRL + V combo to paste or are you right clicking and selecting paste? Also when you copy a picture, make sure you dont click 'Copy Shortcut' and just click 'Copy'. – Connor W Sep 5 '10 at 10:49

What you can do is first to save that image from the web page on you computer. Click on right-button of mouse and select Save image as .... Then open Word and go to Insert->Picture->show the path where you saved that image of the web. And that's it.

Rather painful don't you think defeats the purpose of cut and paste. Since pasting web pages into word 2007 works OK - It should also work in word 2010. – Menuta Jun 3 '10 at 12:25
Yeah, but it is how to be in this situation. I don't know why it is not workin' in 2010's version. As for 2007 it is workin' perfectly. – Bakhtiyor Jun 3 '10 at 12:52
