For several years I have maintained a Wordpad file containing copy/paste information from a popup window on my bank's website. (this is an example - the same thing is happening at other websites also) The data copied was the front and back images of my canceled check and a bit of text (date, number, amount, for easy reading). This no longer works. Apparently website images are no longer put into the clipboard.
Does anyone know WHEN Microsoft did this? Or if there is a way around it? Is there a clipboard.exe -type file that could be copied from an older version?
The popup window is too small to view the text and check images all at one time and the window is not resizable, so using screen copy or a "clipper" type utility won't work because you can only copy what is visible with those.
This is an example, the same thing happens on other websites.
Apparently Word now puts "links" in your Word documents instead of the images themselves, so that if you want to view your document WITH its images, you have to be connected to the internet and allow word to retrieve the images from there - assuming of course that they are still there where the link is pointing.
If I ever get this working right again, I will never download/update anything else from Microsoft.
Does anyone have any ideas about how this functionality could be restored?
