I just go around assuming that everything is supposed to work "right." So "copy img 1" works fine and I can paste into Microsoft Word with no problem. However, my email program, Outlook Express, (also from Microsoft) will not recognize the img being on the clipboard. I had been using Outlook Express to test the pasting, not even thinking that it lacks the ability. And that is the eternal question: "Why would Microsoft program Word with the ability to paste the copy, but not program their email app, Outlook Express, to also paste the copy?"
