Q. How do I attach a file in an email?


  1. Starting from the email to be sent (new email, reply, forward).
  2. Click the “Attach” button, often depicted as a paperclip.
  3. Find the file to be attached; if it is on a thumb drive, start by scrolling the left column of the file explorer down to see “This PC”. Click there and select the thumb drive.
  4. Select the file and click “Open”.
  5. Wait for the file to be attached. Then, send the email as usual.
