I once stumbled onto a way to cut out an undesirable portion of a jpg photo
inserted into a Word document and I can't remember how I did it now that I
have a new computer with different default Tool Bars in Word.

Hi Victoria,

I think you might be referring to the cropping tool, which normally appears on the Picture Toolbar. You can also crop a selected
picture via Format|Picture
