Change the way graphics are inserted
To insert and past graphics, you can decide the following:

On the Tools menu, click Options.
Click the Edit tab.
In the Insert/paste pictures as box, click the default positioning you want.
To set the default as inline, select Inline with text; to set the default as floating, select any of the other options.
