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?"
