Pasting images into MS Word without automatic resize

I often paste images of code into Word documents. (I use these documents myself or share them with my subs.) If the image isn't too wide, Word pastes a clean version of the image into the document (Image 1 below). If, however, the image is too wide, Word automatically re-sizes the image and some of the image's quality is lost (Image 2 below). Is it possible to configure Word to simply paste the image as is without re-sizing no matter how big the image is? (If you're having trouble distinguishing the quality of the two images, click on each one, and the difference will become apparent.)
