Problem inserting graphics in MS apps

When I insert a graphics file in a MS app like wordpad or works etc, I get the icon and not the graphic image, insert as icon is not checked when I do this.  Something has changed on my system because this used to work.  Oh and when I print the file it prints the icon and not the graphics.  BTW I have Lotus Smart Suite and it works ok.

I am using Insert---->Object---->Create from file.  And "display as Icon" is not checked.

I hope the correct way of doin this is to reject the answer at this time since it really was a clairification of the problem.
