That usually happens when something changes the wp setting
Search for ‘image_default_link_type’ and see what value is set for it, the default is ‘file’.
If it is set to something else, then something on your site updated the option and expects it to be that way, so I don’t recommend changing it but it’s easy enough to work around.
When you select the image and show the options, ‘File URL’ will be empty – http://take.ms/Y5vax
That’s the field passed over to the text field so if it’s empty you get nothing, if the above option was ‘file’ you would have a URL to your image in that field by default and then clicking ‘Insert into Post’ works. If it’s empty just click on the ‘File URL’ button just below it and the field should populate with the URL, then click insert into post – http://take.ms/bTYbO
May I ask what you would prefer the field was named?
It’s essentially just a text field that holds the URL, you can put whatever you want there. WP provides the media library and that’s what the majority of people will use but there’s nothing we can do to prevent the above issue without likely conflicting with other plugins (any plugin which alters the above option), you can also add a URL to an external image in that field if preferred.
Strange, if you have that problem in General Settings you should also see the same on App customization.
Whilst we appreciate you taking the time to post the cause and solution, officially we don’t support windows installs so we don’t have any Windows documentation to add that to but I’m glad its now working for you.
