How to copy web page text and images to MS Word

From time to time I want to copy and paste a portion of a web document (viewed in both IE Explorer 7 and 8) into MS Word 2007. The selected text copies and pastes fine, but I am left with only place holders for the images (png). Right clicking the image and clicking copy, then pasting into MS Word doesn't work either. If I paste the image into MS Paint and copy it from there, I can paste it into the Word document. What gives?

"There are some options in Word 2007 that you should check. For instance: Advanced > Show Document Content > Show Picture Placeholders.

Another factor is the view you're using in Word. Some views, like Draft, don't show images normally. Try switching to Print Layout view."

"There are two things that you want to do:

Copy the text and the pictures together
Copy the text first and then right click->Save Picture As..., choose a .jpeg file. Then after that, go to Microsoft Word, select Insert->Picture->From File..., then select the file from your C: drive or wherever it was saved"

"To make it:

1) From the browser, first export the page with document to be copied (as complete html: secondary mouse button ""Save as complete web page"").

2) Open word, Open file: that exported html. That result can be selected total or partially, copied and pasted to any MS Word, with all the images visible."

"Do you have the Drag and drop or copy and paste files option set to Enable?

You can customize IE security settings for internet zone :
