You may see a black circle with a bar across it, but wait for a second or two and allow the document to open, and then drop it into place where you want it in the document.
Yes, this method is quite convenient. Thank you. Have you any idea about using a clip board or a clipboard manager to make it even quicker?
Your welcome.

I just tried to drop an icon into my clipboard (Notepad), it opens, but won't copy the link.

Never used a manager, so I don't know about them.

This might work see 6th feature down: Ditto clipboard manager

Code:
                 Features
  • Easy to use interface
  • Search and paste previous copy entries
  • Keep multiple computer's clipboards in sync
  • Data is encrypted when sent over the network
  • Accessed from tray icon or global hot key
  • Select entry by double click, enter key or drag drop
  • Paste into any window that excepts standard copy/paste entries
  • Display thumbnail of copied images in list
  • Full Unicode support(display foreign characters)
  • UTF-8 support for language files(create language files in any language)
  • Uses sqlite database (www.sqlite.org)

This seems good. I'll try this out. Is it possible to open the Windows Clipboard (the one that comes with 'Word'), without opening a document? If this can be done most of my problems will be solved.

Thank you,

There is, the only way I know of for now involves creating a shortcut:
  • Right-click the Windows Desktop.
  • Go to New, then Shortcut.
  • Type %windir%\system32\clipbrd.exe in the location section.
  • Click Next.
  • Type a name for the Clipboard.
  • Click Finish.
  • To test, double-click the shortcut to the Clipboard you just created.
  • Place the new shortcut you created where it is easy for you to find it.
I'm not sure if the new shortcut can be pinned to your taskbar. To check, right click the shortcut, and see if there is a command to pin to taskbar.

I had a feeling it might not be found. Hmm...I'm working with a slight disadvantage because I use Libre Office.

See if this tutorial, and setting help: Copy and paste multiple items by using the Office Clipboard | Control how the Office Clipboard is displayed
This shows how you can pin the clipboard to your taskbar.

There does seem to be some limitations to the "Office Clipboard".
From the beginning of the above link:
Quote:
The Microsoft Office Clipboard allows you to copy up to 24 multiple text and graphical items from Office documents or other programs and paste them into another Office document.
So once you hit, and got used to the magical number of 24, you would then have to paste them into another document and start over.

I still can't get it to open independent of a word doc. I think I'll have to do with the way it is. Thank you for all the help.

Kind regards.

Your welcome.

Were you able to at least get it to pin to the taskbar?

Couldn't pin to the taskbar either. None of the clipboard options are working, possibly because What I have is Word Starter and not the full version of Word.

If you are attending University, could you ask one of the English or French Majors if there is a student version of Word available?
