Why can't I paste screenshots into a new email?

When I had a hotmail account I could paste a screen shot into the mail body. Also with older versions of Outlook I could also do this. But since I "upgraded" from hotmail to this version of Outlook I can't do this anymore. I tried changing format to html and it didn't work.

Has anybody experienced this and can help?

The Format tab is only available when an image is selected. To have the Format tab appear, follow the steps below:

  1. Paste an image into a new mail message.
  2. Click on the image. The Format tab appears.
  3. Click on the Format tab.
  4. Follow the steps on this article to change the message format in Outlook.
