Organize your clip art and other media

The Clip Art task pane in Word showing the Organize Clips link

You can open Clip Organizer by using the Organize clips link in the Clip Art task pane.

Clip Organizer can be used by itself—separately from any Office program—as a "standalone" program, and through the Clip Art task pane in most Office programs (more about the Clip Art task pane in the second lesson).

There are several ways to open Clip Organizer:

  • In an Office program, use the Organize Clips link in the Clip Art task pane (Insert menu, Picture command).

The Clip Art task pane is available in Microsoft Excel, FrontPage, InfoPath, PowerPoint, Publisher, Visio, Word, and Outlook (if you use Word as your e-mail editor).

  • On the Start menu, click All Programs, point to Microsoft Office, point to Microsoft Office Tools, and then click Microsoft Clip Organizer.
  • Download a clip from Microsoft Office Online. (If you copy (and paste) clip art from the Web site, then Clip Organizer is not opened.)

Note    You can have several instances of Clip Organizer open, so if you're already working in Clip Organizer and then you download some new clip art, a second window will open. This isn't a problem—just close the extra windows.
