Microsoft Word 2010 has optimized "paste" function for better used. It provides paste preview. When you paste in content, you can now take a preview about how it will look depending on your paste choice, making it less likely that you'll have to undo a paste operation. Just hover your mouse over each option, and you'll see the effect that using that option will have on the operation.

If you paste a plain content only with text, you will have three options to choose. You can select keeping the source formatting, merging formatting, or keeping text only. You can simply make choice by clicking it when you see the option you want.

If you paste a mixed content with text, graphic, table or more, you may have only one option, which is keep text only. Click it, and you can get the pasted content only with text. Or paste preview will let you set a default paste option.
