Can anyone help?

I'm trying to do a presentation on powerpoint which needs a lot of photographs which I've saved in Drop box. I've never before had a problem but just recently when I copy a picture from drop box on to powerpoint, I get a message saying the clip board didn't pick it up so I can't paste it. I tried opening the picture with paint and saving it, then copying and pasting but to no avail. this has happened twice now. I'm using the new windows 10.

Thanks a lot.

You might want to install the Dropbox program for Windows (https://www.dropbox.com/install). Once you sign into the program, it will start syncing your Dropbox to your computer, giving you a local copy of everything on your Dropbox. That should make it a lot easier to add the pictures to PowerPoint
