Hey Guys,

I need your helps if you can. I’ve installed Windows XP Professional SP3 (32-bit) operating system and Microsoft Office Professional 2010 in my PC.

My problem is that, I’m not able to paste screenshots from my Microsoft paint to Microsoft Word. May be some bugs in MS Word. I’m also not able to save the file in Microsoft Word.

Please post you valuable answers to help me. Deep Thanks!

Hi Ingridgonzalou,

It happened to me before that I cannot paste the screenshot of my Microsoft paint to the Microsoft word. What I did was, open the Microsoft paint and right click. Select copy and then paste it manually into the Microsoft word. Usually it will fix the problem but if the same problem occurs, try rebooting your pc.

Hope it helps.

Hello Dear,

The solution of your problem is very easy. To solve this problem try the following ways,

1. At first paste the image of print screen to the paint, if you need set the resolution of the image. Then save it as JPG or PNG. Then import it in MS word from insert menu. For that go to the image, browse and open it.

2. When it will open in MS word, take your pointer in the image and make a right click of your mouse you will find "text wrapping". Select a menu from there according to your need.  So you will be able to move the image where you need.

3. Then save the MS word page usually.

You cannot copy the image directly from Paint to Word. You need to save the image first as .jpg or .bmp file and then go to MS Word, select the Insert menu and click on Pictures. Search for the image and you will see the image on your document.

However, if you are receiving any issues with MS Word, try to update your Windows. Or you can also remove your MS Word and reinstall it back again.

Dear Ingridgonzalou,

Don't worry. You can try another way. First, you need to take a screenshot. For that, follows these steps.
Press F11 for full screen to the object you want to take a screenshot.
Press Print Screen SysRq button.
Start> RUN
Write the box "mspaint" and Enter
Now press CTRL+V
Save it in JPG format
Now go to your Word file and paste the screenshot.

If you still face any problem, then uninstall MS Office and install it again. Thanks.
