How To Directly Insert Online Images And YouTube Videos In Word

Microsoft Word can directly insert online pictures and videos in a document. It has an integrated image and video search using Bing to do this. So there is no need to separately search in a different browser and then copy them.

Here is how:

Open Word and choose Insert.

For inserting pictures from the web, choose Online Pictures.
