Imagine you have a list of PDF documents or images that you’d like to copy and paste directly into a Microsoft Word document.
That’s very easy to do.
- Open your Windows Explorer and browse to the directory where the files you want to copy are saved. NOTE: Make sure you are viewing at the “Details” mode where files are listed by their names.
- Click on the files you’d like to select and copy by pressing the Ctrl key. If the files are adjacent, you can press the Shift key to select multiple files.
- When all files are selected, either right click and select Copy or press Ctrl+C.
- Open a new MS Word document and paste. You’re done.
CAUTION: Make sure the sizes of the files selected and copied from inside Windows Explorer are not big. Otherwise they will crash your MS Word, and perhaps your machine itself. Be careful in selecting as small files as possible.
