Solved How do you copy/paste files to the forum?

How do you copy/paste files to the forum?
How do you copy/paste files from the desktop to the forum? I am trying to ask a question and it would be so much easier if I could copy/paste from my desktop the files I am referring to and people could see what I am talking about. But I cannot figure out how to do it. I can make them copy/ paste to Notepad or Word and such but not to this forum page.

So how do I do it? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanx,

Dick R.

re: "OK, doesn't solve my problem "

Although we don't know what your "problem" is, I'll toss this out:

Maybe I spoke too soon. There is apparently a feature of this site where images can be posted using the HTML IMG tags, but there is a major caveat:

Those of us viewing the posts must have the Images On option enabled in our settings. I can only speak for the Office forum, of which I am the moderator, that people just don't post images here. I stumbled around in other forums on this site and don't think I've ever seen an image unless it was in a thread that was discussing posting images on this site. In other words, it's not an every day (or an every week or even an every month) occurrence.

In addition, the image still has to be stored someplace else on the interweb. You can not store the image on a computing.net server.

Since that's the case, it probably makes more sense to simply post the link so that anyone who wants to see it can do so with relative ease. I can pretty much assure you that if a helper doesn't already have Images set to On, they aren't going to go through the trouble of changing the setting just because you post the image as part of your question.

You can not upload files in this forum.

You have 2 choices:

1 - Upload the file to a file sharing website on the internet and include the link in your post.

2 - Click on the following line and read the instructions on how to post data in this forum while keeping the columns lined up so that it is easier for us to read.

Hi derbyDad03,
Thanx for your reply. I guess technically it would be uploading a file but I don't exactly see it thaat way. I guess it would be a file for lack of anything else to call it, but I wouldn't call it a file per se. I mean all I want to do is hit print screen when my windows explorer is open on my desktop (showing the folders I am talking about) and then paste it onto my message in this forum, to make it easy to understand and save my fingertips from bleeding from all the typing. Is that not allowed?
I thoroughly understand not being able to upload files to this forum. God only knows what kind of Pandora's Box that would create. SCARY!! But what I am talking about is really nothing more than a picture of sorts. You can't make it do anything good or bad. You can only look at it in my message.
So, I hope that makes it a little more clear to everyone. Now that being a little more clear is there a way to accomplish it or is it taboo also?
Thanx in advance,
Dick R.

This is a "text only" forum, with some limited formatting features such as the pre tags, explained in the instructions found by clicking on my signature line. You can certainly paste text into this forum, but that's all.

As I said earlier, anything other than text must be posted someplace else and the link to that location posted here.

OK, doesn't solve my problem but thanx for your help. I appreciate your taking the time to explain. And if "Them's the Rules then Them's the Rules." Can't say I agree with all of it but I am only one vote.
Thanx for your help DerbyDad03.
