    Hi, im typing up a document in Word and need to insert a map of a nearby street from google earth. Is there anyway i can 'cut and paste' the map into word?

    Take a screen shot by pressing prt sc, then paste into word.

    Or, paste it into paint and crop out the section you want, then paste that into word.

    or just save the piccy to 'your computer' and insert it that way.

    Thanks for the quick reply but hat does the whole page including adress bar etc, all i want is the map bit.

    Quickest way is just to do a print screen. With the map on screen press the Print Scrn button on the keyboard. Then go into word and press paste. You can then use the crop and resize tools in word to cut out the bits you dont need around the outside.

    You should be able to crop the picture? Option should be in the picture toolbar...
