I have a laptop and it is being a little wierd:
1) When I select a picture that I have inserted in MSWord 2007 and right-click I don't get the pop-up menu that I should.
2) When I try to dsrag the picture it leaves a copy in the original location.

What is up with this?

BobbaBuoy--
If this is something new, run a System Restore.
What popup menu were you expecting?  Cut, Copy, etc. is what I get.  No Context Menu.

BobbaBuoy--Maybe repairing Word is really what you want.

I should have mentioned in answer to your second question that when I try to drag an embedded picture by using the right click, I am offered the choice of Move Here or Copy Here
