Send an email attachment from the file

Here’s a time saving tip for when you need to attach a file (photo, document etc) to an email. 

Instead of opening your email client, typing the message, and then going through the process of locating and attaching a file, you can bypass a few of these steps by starting the whole process from the file you want to attach to your message.

  1. Find the file you want to attach to your email, no matter where it is located on your computer. 
  2. Right click on the file’s name or icon
  3. Click Send To
  4. Click Mail Recipient

A new mail message will be created in your default email client, with the file attached and ready to send.  Your email client doesn't open, just the new message screen.  All you need to do is add the recipient’s email address, change the subject if you like, and add your message.

This tip works in Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
