Try not copy but right click on html file and select Open With - Microsoft Word

Does this happen on every Word page from every web site, or just in a particular Word file, or just from a particular web site?

if I right click and select Copy Image and go to Word Select Paste /Paste Special then select Bitmap and click OK it will paste the Picture properly in Word.

But this way, I will have to copy paste the text and pictures separately...that 's too much of work if you have to do that  on many HTML Pages.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

It is probably because the image in the html is set like

<img src="images/image.jpg"> instead of <img src="https://mysite.com/images/image.jpg">

What are you trying to do by getting this to word? I use adobe acrobat to save web pages and it does a much better job. If you are trying to download and preserve web pages, try https://www.httrack.com/

If you want to get image from website you can also try save whole website as mhtml file.
Right click on browser and save as. Select mhtml extension and save somewhereon the disk.
This will create subcatalogs with pictures attached to this website.
You can go there and get pictures.

Remember that some websites are preventing to be copied so right click is disabled.

Another option is to run Mozilla Firefox, open website and select SOURCE to see.
In source code you can find link to picture so you can copy link and paste in separate window to see picture and then save on disk or use link to paste in picture properties in Word.

As I stated above:

But this way, I will have to copy paste the text and pictures separately...that 's too much of work if you have to do that  on many HTML Pages.

So if it is done that manually, there should be a setting on Word that makes it as Default.
the bit map for the picture is not selected as Default, I had to select it manually each time I paste a picture.... How can I make it Default ??
