Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Quickly attaching files, part of Outlook 2013: Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts.
…File attachments are either the greatest thing about Outlook or they're the biggest…curse that you have because you have to manage all of those attachments.…And every single time we actually attach an entire file to an email,…we create more copies of it.…We already had a copy in our Documents folder somewhere or on a network share.…Now we have another copy of it in Sent Items, and…every recipient has a copy of their own.…But, if you are going to use file attachments,…let me show you some of the best ways to attach files.…You can, of course, click the Attach File button.…And that will open a window, so that you can browse, and choose a document or…something else that you would like to add.…
However, if you open up the window, right here for that library,…you can select an item, drag and drop it, and it's attached just like that.…The nice thing about doing it this way is you can choose multiple items as long as…they're in the same folder.…There we go, super quick.…Now, what if I didn't have an email message open.…
