I have a few embedded images in a Microsoft Word document, is there anyway to copy the images out as jpeg files?
Although Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V is a good approach, but a better way is to save the MS word file as webpage, and get the jpg file.
The reason I said this is because Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V will generate a resolution loss in the picture. OTOH, if you save the Microsoft Word to HTML, then all the image size, and the original picture resolution will be preserved.
Copy-paste from Word to another software (e.g. PowerPoint, Irfanview as suggested above) results in reduced resolution image in most cases (Word adjusts the resolution according to the page layout). Using 7zip as suggested works nicely, but if you don't have it, you can also rename a .docx file to .zip file and then use Windows capability of looking into contents - look for a folder called "media".
