The Windows clipboard reserve even more horrors , as example strip away the
transparency (alpha channel)
So may be a good idea save in gimp and then reopen from the external app
instead then copy and paste
BUT from the gimp side will be nice a menu option as "Open With" or "Send to"
to exchange images with other apps
