Windows from the Keyboard Tips, Attach a file to an Outlook Email, July 8, 2020

Hello. This is Gerry Chevalier from the GTT Edmonton Chapter. This weekly blog provides tips that I find useful as a keyboard user of Windows. The information is for Windows10 and Office 365, although many tips still apply to older versions. The tips do not require a screen reader unless specifically noted. Thus, the tips apply whether you are a keyboard user or low vision mouse user. Here is this week’s tip.
Outlook – How to Attach a Document to an Email
It’s easy to attach a file to an email without using a mouse. Highlight the file you wish to attach using File Explorer. Press Control+C to copy it to the clipboard. Then open your new email window and press Control+V to attach the file to the email. Note that this copy/paste method will not always work if you are using Outlook with an Exchange server which is common in business environments.
