Cannot select images in Microsoft Word?

For some reason, sometimes you cannot select images within a Microsoft Word document.

This has baffled me on an off for some time – and I still do not know the reason why it behaves like this.

Today I stumbled across a very simple (and maybe obvious to some) solution… right-click on the image (instead of trying to left-click to select it).  This causes the image to be selected and pop’s up the context (right-click) menu.  Just press the Esc (escape) key to close the context menu, and the image remains selected.

Simple huh.
