copying and pasting pics in email?

Q: copying and pasting pics in email?

Is there any way I can copy and paste a pic or photo into the message box of Hotmail? I know I can always send it along as an attachment, but I would like to know if you can do it another way. There are photos I run across all the time which I would love to be able to insert into the Hotmail message box when sending e-mail, without saving them first and then attaching them. Just wondering. Thanks in advance.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Yahoo offers an excellent upgrade to Yahoo Mail called Photo Mail, which allows you to send photos (Jpegs only) on your PC without attaching them.

To learn about Yahoo Photo Mail, go here:


It's in the final stages of Beta, but seems to work really well. It also makes attachements in Yahoo Mail easier to use. The installation is easy as well.


PS. If you are using the new YAHOO MAIL BETA, not sure if this upgrade will work. You should consult the Help files for Yahoo Mail Beta, for more information if this applies to your situation.

The thread expired on this but I need to get some kind of answer. I am using Win 7 and ATT Yahoo email. I can't paste pics from my computer into the body of the email. Is there a way to do this without buying upgrades or applications? If there are free applications I can deal with that but it's so frustrating to get emails from friends with dozens of pics in the body of the email and I can't paste one.

I can't copy/cut and paste in Word 2003. When I right-click, all the buttons are grayed-out. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V don't work, either. The clipboard instructions say something about a highlight tool, but I can't find that. I have tried SafeMode, and that doesn't help. I haven't found any viruses or malware. I can't copy/cut and paste in Notepad, either, if that suggests something to someone. Any ideas?

This error seems to occur when the ClipBook service is not running (Windows XP). What to do?

- assuming you have Admin priviledges, open the Control Panel and go to Administrative Tools->Services
- the ClipBook service has two dependent services which may not be running: Network DDE & Network DDE DSDM
- if both are running you should be able to double-click on the ClipBook service, set starup type to Automatic, press Apply and then Start; you are done!
- if neither is running ensure that you start Network DDE DSDM first and then Network DDE; then perform the above step

Also, cleaning the registry isn't recommended here as it can lead to unintended results and has no benefits at all.

I'm having issues with font size.

Sometimes when I copy text that is in normal font [say 12pt] from one source and then paste it elsewhere it will paste in very tiny font. As small is 5 or 6 pt. This has been happening just recently and appears to happening only with certain sites.
Any ideas what is causing this and how to correct the problem? This has only been a recent occurrence.

Hi there! Nice place you have here.

I'm having a problem that's been persistent for the past couple of days. It seems I can't copy or cut text from one window or tab in Mozilla and paste it to another window or tab. When I try, the "paste" function is disabled both in the upper control bar File Edit View... and when I right-click the mouse , the drop down menu won't have "paste" available as a function. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V won't work, either.

Sometimes it'll work it I copy the text to MS Word and select "cut" or sometimes "copy", I can get it attached to the clipboard in order to get it to its final destination.

I've tried leaving the selected text highlighted in the default blue and I've tried de-selecting the text to see if that has any effect. It doesn't either way.

I must say that it used to work perfectly. I never had any trouble with it in the past.

Any help would be greatly appreciated by this n00b!

So I've scoured the internet for a solution, but have not been able to find one.

In simplest terms I have several folders in a directory divided by year and person (C:\Folder A\Year\Person, etc.) for several years and people and want to move these folders to a new directory that is organized by person (C:\Folder B\John Doe\2010, etc.).

Basically, rather than going year by year, person by person copying and pasting into a person folder that has sub-directories for each year, I'd like to know if there's a way I can automate this process rather than spending my days Copying, finding the person in my new directory, navigating their sub-directory to the appropriate year I'm copying from and Pasting... and doing this for several year's worth of data.


Folder A\2010\Person A ---> Folder B\Person A\Reports\2010
Folder A\2010\Person B ----> Folder B\Person B\Reports\2010
Folder A\2011\Person A ----> Folder B\Person A\Reports\2011
Folder A\2011\Person C ----> Folder B\Person C\Reports\2011
... etc.

I've found copying programs that copy multiple files to multiple directories, but no way to filter which files go to which directory. And ones that copy multiple files to one directory. But rather I'm trying to do a 1 to 1 Copy/Paste just several times over. I've also tried syncing, but that still requires navigating to the files you want to sync which takes longer than the mind-numbing task of Copy/Paste for days on end.

Hello...hope I'm in the right forum? I have Win7, WLM Essential 2011 Beta, and Firepox.

Please help with this problem? Just a minute ago I lost a number of files while moving and pasting them from one folder to another. I've been copying and pasting them but made a mistake with this one. So I wanted to rush to the Recycle Bin or Trash Can or whatever it is that WLM has, in the hopes of finding them there but...where oh where is this Bin or Trash???

Thanks ever so much for any help to recuperate the lost files!


A:Lost files while copying/pasting...

The Recycle Bin is in the C:\ drive and is usually the last item in your Navigation Pane in your Windows Explorer.

There are several other places you can look for your files. First, open your Start Menu and search your Recent Items list.

Then, if not there, go to the REAL Recent Items folder located at:
C:\Users/USERNAME/AppData/Microsoft/Roaming/Recent Items. There you will find a long, long list of all of the last several months' worth of recent items.

If your moved files were in WLM then you should look in the Deleted folder, and if you haven't set your Deleted folder to delete instantly, they should hopefully still be there. If not there, also check your Drafts folder and for good measure, your Sent and Junk folders.

If you still can't find them, do a Search or an Advanced Search by file name or some key words in the files.

Hi there

Last year I created an Appraisal form that we use at work for about 500 people. It's a Word protected form with form fields set in a number of seperate tables

For this year, I need to add a function that allows a user to open up last year's form, copy one table from it and paste the data into a different table in another copy of the same form

The table with the data in it is 4 columns wide but may have any number of rows in it. Row 2 onwards needs to be copied across

The table for the data to be pasted into is 6 columns wide and may not have enough rows to accommodate the pasted data so would need some sort of error trapping to pick up that it needs extra rows adding before pasting.

Data should be pasted into row 2 onwards and should sit within the first 4 columns of the receiving table. The idea is then the user fills in column 5 and 6 adding comments about the data they have pasted in

If any extra cells are needed to fit the incoming data they should have form fields in columns 5 and 6 too for entering the comments above

Phew...hope this makes sense

My experience of this kind of thing is limited to modifying other people's VB code/macros to add some functionality myself. This is a bit beyond me!

If I copy some text from a source document (Word 2000) that has say Arial font size 10 and paste it into a new Word 2000 document that has Times New Roman size 12 as default, it inherits the new documents font and size ie Times New Roman size 12.

Surely it should keep the same font and size from the source document?

Hi - I have an excel sheet that has several columns, including a quantity field. To make this data compatable with other spreadsheets, I need to expand the data out so that instead of a field that just reads "quantity 4" I would actually have 4 separate rows that are carbon copies of the original row (the one that says quantity 4). I've never used macros before and thought that it might be possible with a funky lookup function, but I'm not sure. Any help at all would be much appreciated.

Who are you logged in as? Often, if you've got a personalised account, the default is 'User'. You'll probably want to be in the 'Power Users' category at least. Log in as Administrator and see if you can do it, or maybe modify your user access from Administrator, and then do it with your account.

If you're in as Administrator, then it's probably that there are some files with the name that you're copying in that directory already that are marked as Read Only, so if you really want to over-write them, right-click, properties and remove the 'read-only' flag.

Good luck and happy flying.

I'm hoping there is a saviour out there for me.
I'd be grateful for any suggestion or advice.

I have two identical laptops (IBM Thinkpad T22). They are identical in build. They both have Windows 2000 and Office 2000 installed on them.

I have an Excel spreadsheet and Powerpoint presentation.

I highlight data from cells A1 to H15 in excel and click edit>copy.
On a new slide in Powerpoint I click edit>paste special>microsoft excel worksheet object.

On the one laptop it pastes all the data in perfectly. On the other laptop only cells A1 to C15 are pasted in.

I have attached a screen dump from both pc's so you can better understand what I mean.

The only thing I have a hunch on is the settings. On both pc's, on the pasted data, I right click and select "format object". On the size tab I noticed that on the "good pc" the units are in cm but on the "bad pc" its on Inches ("). I changed the regional settings on the "bad pc" to English UK (Im in the UK!) and this changed the settings to cm's. I tried changing the size of the object on the "bad pc" to the same size of the object on the "good pc" but it didnt work. The settings dont hold. I change them but when I go back in they are back to where they were before.

Can anyone help me?
I am baffled how two identical pc's have this difference.

Now, go to PPT.

On one PC with Windows Vista, I have a Word file, containing a textbox. I can't recall if it's Word 2000 or Word 2003 at present, but will confirm later.
I change the text in the box as required, in 42pt text in a font of my choosing. I then copy this text box and paste it above or below a 300px wide bitmap image in MS Paint.
It took a bit of jimmying with the text box to get it the right sort of size in the Word doc initially, but now it works fine, and when pasted into Paint, the text always looks clean, doesn't need any resizing or anything.

However, when I try to use this same Word file on a Windows XP PC with Word 2003, or on a Windows 7 PC with Word 2010 Starter, with the same font installed and the textbox dimensions unchanged, and the same 300px wide bmp image, the pasting doesn't work as expected.
When the textbox is pasted in on either of these other PCs, it is wider than the image (400px or 401px, in fact).

I can resize the textbox to (locked aspect ratio) 75% of it's original size, and reduce the font size to 31.5pt (75% of 42pt) - if I copy that and paste it into Paint, the banner width looks right (maybe a pixel out), the text size is right. However, the font looks like crap, jagged edges like it's a jpg that's been squashed or something...

Anyone know why this is happening? Was there some fundamental difference between how Vista Paint handled pasted textboxes compared to W98 or W7 Paint?
Or is it Word messing it up?

Hi there

Here is a simple question but I don't know the answer. Say I create a drop down list in Book1, cell A1, sheet1 using validation. The list is in cells A1, A2, A3, A4 in Sheet2. The names in the list are Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. The name of the list is "Seasons" in sheet2.

Now I copy and paste the drop down list from Book1, cell A1, Sheet1 to Book2, Cell A1, Sheet1.

I now notice that the drop down list in book2 is working, even though there is no list of the name of the seasons in Book2. Why is that??

I also noticed that if I change the file name of book1 to a different file name and then copy and paste the drop down list to Book2, sheet1, cell A1, I get a message saying if I want to keep the same name or change the name of my list. I find this very confusing. Can someone expalin to me what is going on??


A:Excel - Copying and pasting a dropdown list

When you copy, a reference to the list in Book1 is automatically created, e.g.:

Good morning,

My apologies in advance for posting a question that has been answered many times here and on the interwebs already, but the answers I find are mostly the same and I need further clarification, if possible.

I work at as a tech at a law firm and I'm having an issue where 2 users are using a shared excel workbook to copy and paste data into from miscellaneous client websites, such as client names, loan numbers, etc.

Every once and a while, when one of the users is done making their changes and saves their work, their workbook size will jump anywhere between 20MB and 250MB in size from the original, which is usually in the lower KB range. All answers I've found include copying and pasting the content into a new spreadsheet, recreating the document, finding the last used cell with Ctrl+End and clearing the blank spaces, and removing text styles like boldness and colors. All these solutions do work, but it's hard to keep telling an attorney to do these things without them biting your head off about it - because this does happen multiple times a day on this one spreadsheet. It is, in fact, due to blank cells, as the last active cell usually hits the 1,000,000 number range when the file size jumps up.

I heard there's away to lock a spreadsheet to a predetermined cell count, but I'm still researching this method. If anyone can provide me further explanation on why this happens and how to prevent it, please do. Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD when copying and pasting files to external drive

Please post the all the files following Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Hi All,

I am currently using Win7 Pro SP1 32-Bit and am having an issue with the following:

Windows Explorer immediately closes down after copying/pasting files to a USB Stick or a CD/DVD. If I have to copy multiple files to multiple folders, I have to re-open Windows Explorer and drill down to the removable media, which is still plugged in or in the CD/DVD drive as many times as necessary. A search in these forums directed me to a post that did not help.

Is there any type of fix for this issue? Neither Windows 8 or Win XP do this.

Mike T.

A:Windows Explorer closes after copying/pasting files to USB/DVD

There is a tutorial here on adding "copy to" and/or "move to" to the right click context menu. Works like a charm, use it all the time including to Usb stick and from CD's.

Hi there

I have downloaded a form from Revenue Canada named gst190-fill-11e.pdf. The PDF form is fillable. To make a long story short, I have recreated the form in Excel 2000 and created an Excel program that automatically populates the cells. The problem is that Revenue Canada will not accept my Excel form and demands that I use their PDF fillable form. I'm tired of copying and pasting data from my Excel form to their gst190-fill-11e.pdf form, since I have hundreds of these to do. It is very time consuming. I tried to record a macro by copying and pasting from my Excel form onto their form but my macro looks something like this.

Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.CutCopyMode = False

In other words, the name of the form did not appear in this recorded macro. Is there a way to create a macro that copies and pastes cells from Excel into a fillable PDF file??

If anyone out there has any idea how to do this, I would greatly appreciate it. If you want to look at the form just google it.

I have a Windows 7, 64 bit, Home Edition PC and Office 2007.

Everything was working fine until recently when my copy and paste function failed to copy the formatting!

I have researched the issue both on Google and here in Tech Support Guy forums. I have checked the settings in Word Options/Advanced/Cut, copy, paste.

I have inserted the Office disk and repaired Word. After the repair and a reboot, the copy function worked correctly ONCE, and then reverted to its failure to copy the formatting.

I am sorely stressed over this issue and don't know what to do. Please, does anyone have a fix for this?

Many thanks for any suggestions!

Our office is having problems with a Word 2003 gremlin ...

Office 2003 was updated earlier this summer, and since that time some of the users have been having intermittent problems with the copy/paste function. The icon's are greyed out and we can't paste (even using Ctrl C and Ctrl V). Even after we shut down Word and restart it, the problem still exists. Then as mysteriously as it appeared, it will go away. Sometimes we can copy/paste, sometimes we can't. It's driving us crazy!

We tried replacing the Normal.dot That helped initially, but the problem returned. We thought maybe it was an affected document that these users were accessing at some point during the day (hence the no rhyme or reason appearance), but the problem was there first thing this morning before any word documents were opened.

Any thoughts?


A:Problems Copying / Pasting - Word 2003 after updates applied


I would very much be interested as well, as some users in my company (among which myself) are going crazy! In my case only CTRL+C does not work anymore. You soon learn how often you used that!
I've tried a full re-install of Office 2003 and several repair tools, but the problem has been persistent for at least 3 months now. Only in Word.

Because of my tendancy to delete files from the Desktop without thinking, I often put a lot of my more important files in C:\ or otherwise. In this case, I'm running a program that's installed in Program Files and I've decided to put all of it's dependencies
and addons into it's same folder (In C:\Program Files).

Only one problem: when I paste anything into this folder, it takes forever. And I don't mean one of those scenarios where it's stuck on the loading bar for an eternity and I can't close out of the dialog. The dialog straight up confirming that I want to paste
something doesn't show up period for a good 30 minutes. It's the most annoying thing ever. I've closed out of every single program I'm not using; the only programs open are Firefox, a command line prompt that needs to stay open, and the program
that I'm using. I've tried restarting Windows Explorer TWICE and it doesn't show up. This is the most annoying thing ever. Please help.

Windows XP Pro SP3
No recent crashes, no new software before and after the incident, except for Belarc Advisor so I could get info.
I ran Avast! & Spybot, they found nothing except for some misc. tracking cookies.

I really don't understand what caused this to start happening. I haven't installed or uninstalled anything in weeks. When I try to cut, copy, paste or delete files using hotkeys, right-click, drag-n-drop or a wizard, in explorer or otherwise, such as FreeCommander, the program doing the cutting and whatnot freezes. The only exceptions are TeraCopy and the console. It also happens when I hit win+E and when I right click on anything in Explorer. Security Center is also reporting Avast! as off, when in the system tray, running the UI and in ProcessExplorer, it's clearly on and functioning,

When it first happened, I just opened ProcessExplorer (I have it set to hijack the normal task manager) and restarted explorer.exe. When that didn't do it, I deleted explorer.exe, restarted and expanded a fresh copy from the I386 folder in WINDOWS. That didn't do it, so I ran avast!, spybot, and when those did nothing, RegSeeker. After these, I downloaded the few hotfixes from Microsoft I hadn't and restarted, which did nothing. The only thing I haven't done is a system restore to before it started, which I'm doing now.

here's the software belch from Belarc:

I have some pics on a DVD that I put onto my hard drive. These pics were a back up and I have since reformatted my computer, so I put them back on my HD. The problem I am running into is that I would like to put the pics on an SD chip to play a slideshow in a new photo frame. When I try to copy the pics from the hd to the SD chip, I get an error message that says the file cannot be copied because the "directory or file cannot be created" can anybody tell me what this means and what I have to do to copy the pic? Thank you for your help.

A:copying pics

I&#8217;m assuming you are using a card reader to write the files. I also assume instructions for the photo frame don&#8217;t require any special formatting or directories on the card.

If the card has been used in other devices it is probably a good idea to format the card. With the card in the reader format the card if it can&#8217;t be formatted in the photo frame. Unless the frame takes HD cards you format FAT. Right click on the drive > Format.

Unless the instructions require a folder or directory, transfer the photos to the root directory of the card using Windows Explorer or My Computer. Hold the Ctrl key while you highlight the photos you want. Right click one of the highlighted photos and select &#8220;Copy&#8221;. Right click on the drive that is the card reader and select &#8220;Paste&#8221;. They should go into the root directory of the card.
