    How do I insert a file's content into new thread box?

    When I want to start a new thread, I compose the text I want to insert into the new thread box
    as a Word Document before even going to Windows Secrets forum.
    I find this to be the best way to compose what I want to say without feeling pressured to finish
    holding up the new thread facility. I have done this in the past here at Windows Secrets lounge,
    but I have forgotten how to do it.
    I compose my remarks in a Word document, then save it in My Documents folder. I would like to
    start up a new thread process, acquire the Word document, and insert it into the tread box.
    I do not want to "attach" my file into the tread box; I would like it to be like a "paste" process.
    Dell Inspiron 15R, 8GB, Win7 Home Premium 64bit SP1
    All help truly appreciated!

    After I created the Word file, I saved it in My Documents folder. I then reopened the file and did a 'COPY' edit action.
    However, when I open Internet Explorer to access Windows Secrets Forums, if I click on the Edit menu option, none of its options are clickable, all are greyed out. What I have not tried yet, and I will after I close this reply, is to open a tread box and enter 'Ctrl+V' and see if that will open what is in the clipboard.
    Hey, instead of closing this out, I just went to this line and did the Ctrl+V, and wal-a! there was my Word doc.! (I had considered doing that earlier this morning, but got caught up in the process and did not try it then.)
