Ok just recently foound out that i can find clipart thro word to add on to a doc.
When i do this, it seems to freeze the program. and i cannot find an item to cut / copy / paste type thing.

and they all show up like a W media player icon???? what is the best way or correct file functions i need set to look for only pics? clip art things?

Trying to find cars, and the other lot is baby's.....LOL last time i gave up and went to google. but i can beat this somehow...........

instructions or helpful hints welcome.

Well download (dont copy & paste) whatever clipart u want to any folder, (or make a folder).

Then go into word, tools/options/file locations and select clipart pictures and point it to that folder. Then try insert / pictures/clipart, it should then point to that folder, so u can select the clipart.
