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

Hi Jim,

Thanks. Most of the time, I wish to view the attachments right away, but I'll remember that keystroke of going through the file menu. Thanks.

You can always press Alt F from the message list, and down arrow to Save Attachments.
This will bring up a dialog asking you to specify a folder into which you wish to save the attachment.
Alternatively, I have found that when you open the message, you may need to press Shift Tab more than once, but you should get to the attachment, and Jaws instructs you to press down arrow for the attachment options, among these are Preview and Open.
Hope this helps

Hi Bill,



Thanks. Somehow, this setting was changed. In one message, an
attachment was reported, but I could not bring up the attachment, but
in another message, Insert-a worked. Perhaps the attachment in the
first message was embedded. Sure glad to have this feature back!

Make sure that, in Outlook Options>Trust Center>Trust Center
Settings>Handling Attachments, that you have Attachment Preview turned off.

Hi All,



I am running Office 365 and Outlook 2016. I used to be able to bring
up the attachments list with insert-a within an open message, or I
could shift-Tab to the attachments list. Now, neither is possible.
What can I do to resolve this? I know it should function most of the
time at least, but now even though Jaws reports an attachment, the
keystroke never works. I am running Jaws 2019, Beta 2. Thanks.

Hi Bill,



Not sure if this is really what your after, but if you've found the
attachment in the email already you can right click the attachment
and that will bring up various options such as open, save as etc.

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.
