    Default Adding Screen prints to messages

    Using Microsoft Snip & Sketch to capture current screen print, I can not figure out how to "copy" from that application to post to my messages here. I was told to select the insert image from the ribbon, but it is prompting for a URL instead of .pdf file location. In other applications, I can simply select copy (from Snip & Sketch) and paste (into Word).

    I love this site for answers to questions, but I need to communicate a visual problem for a solution.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Not sure if you're in the right area...

    There should be a screenshot option on the Insert tab of outlook that would let you take a snapshot of any open "windows" or you can use the Screen Clipping feature to select a custom area. If the option is disabled, put your cursor where you'd like the picture then check to see if the options are available.

    I followed those instructions, but on my Mr. Excel page it does not paste (Cntrl V) the selected screenshot. I was told by another user to use the ribbon, but none of those allow a paste option either. Confused. Please adivse and thank you for your response. Tom

    My apologies, I must have misread your original post.

    To post a screenshot here on this site, use your preferred screen capture tool to take the screenshot and save the clip to file. Once there, you will need to add it to a file storage site (OneDrive, Dropbox, etc) and look for a share link. Finally, use the Insert Image button in the tread tools (just left of the film strip icon) and insert your url to the saved image.

    No apologies needed, I'm sure it is something I'm doring wrong.

    Following your instructions, I still can't get the image to post in a message.

    Using the Microsoft Snip & Sketch, I exported the captured screen shot to a .pdf file stored on my Google Drive account. (Originally added to my employer One Drive aaccount, but couldn't get that to work either)

    I selected and attempted to cop the URL link with a simple Cntr C

    Went to my post in Mr. Excel and clicked from the ribbon Insert Image. When the URL dialog box opened, I pasted (Cntrl V) the link and pressed Enter, but the Message screen remained blank.

    Thank you so much for your help! Please let me know what I am missing.
