Reduce Microsoft Word file size

I have a word file with tens of screen captures in it, causing the file size is so huge (around 36MB).

I would like to know if there is any way to reduce the file size.

Reduce the quality of the pictures before inserting them.

How about the pictures are already in the file?
Should I reduce the quality of each picture? Or any option in Word to globally reduce the quality of all pictures?
I'm not aware of any built-in option.

I did the screen captures by pressing PrintScreen (or Alt+PrintScreen) and then paste them in the Word file.
For the next time, how should I paste the screen captures in Word if I want to keep the file size smaller?
You can use the tools this website provides.
