Default Need to set new computer to copy PDF file from Explorer and automatically paste embedded into Word

I need to set new computer so when I right click and Copy on a PDF file from Windows Explorer that it pastes the content of the PDF file as an embedded document automatically when pasted into Word 365 Pro Plus.

This does work without additional software. I have verified it on multiple computers and it is working the way I described on my existing computers running the same version of Office. I open my letterhead and paste the PDF file itself without ever going into Acrobat and the file is automatically embedded.

There is also no need to go to Insert Object or to use Paste Special from the Home ribbon which create additional prompts I don't get on these other computers when doing a copy and paste into Word.

On the new computer the default behavior is to create and icon for the PDF file and shows no file content.

What are your Copy and Paste Option settings on each of the computers?

Default identical

They are the same on a working version of Word (2013) as they are on a non-working (2016). The best I can tell is that this just works by default in Office 2013 and not in Office 2016. Can anyone else confirm that?

Ctrl-Alt-V almost does what I want but there is still an additional window that comes up and needs interaction to do the embed.
