Re: Outlook, getting to the options for dealing with an attachment

You can shift tab to the attachment. You should hear JAWS "use alt down arrow to manage the attachments. Once you do that, you can do anything.
As far as adding an attachment, just do an h, a and then an f. Then browse to the attachment and press inter. If you want, you can even add that keystroke to the quick access toolbar.

That is a very nifty Outlook trick Anne.

I also tried it in Thunderbird but no success unfortunately.

I love it. That way you don't have to navigate through folders to find what you want to attach.

Similarly, while in the list of attachments, you can copy an attachment's name and paste it into a folder, avoiding the whole save rigmarol.

Hi Anne,

I never knew that about pasting the attached file into the body of the
email
that's a handy one to remember.

Insert+a makes a list of attachments, and there is the option to open
Insert+or
save.

Also, shift+tab often reaches the attachments list. Someone said
alt+f, then m to save all attachments.

To insert an attachment, copy the file name and paste it into the body
of the email.

What is the method for reaching the options for opening or saving a
single attachment in Outlook? I know it has something to do with
using the arrows in combination with another key, but at the moment,
I can't remember the keystroke.

If you have highlighted an attachment, I thought it was ALT plus Down
Arrow, but that's not it.
