Windows 10: cannot copy/paste images from any browser

    cannot copy/paste images from any browser

    I'd be grateful for any help. Windows 10 recently went wierd on me - it stopped doing a full copy paste from any web browser. I usually do my copy/paste over to an MS Word file and about 2 weeks ago all it copied was the text, no images? Odd?
    I use two methods to copy and paste, either right-click functions or Control/C or V. If I try to copy paste from a Word doc over to another Word doc then everything copies over fine, both text and images, but when I do the exact same from a browser to a Word doc only the text gets copied, and an empty image placeholder appears when I click where the image should be. I've tried various browser but still the same problem. Thanks for any help.

    Have a look in your Word options on the advanced tab and check your cut and paste options. You may have the "Pasting from other programs" set to Text only.
