moderated trouble attaching a PDF


Bill White
 

The other thing you can do, Madison, instead of attaching the pdf file, is, if the pdf file is on a website, send the person the link to the file, instead of attaching the file itself to the e-mail.

Subject: trouble attaching a PDF

 

Hi all,

I’m trying to send something to a friend of mine that was sent to me as a PDF (I figured it would be) but when I go to attach the file it’s not showing up in the list of recently viewed files even though I’ve looked at it; it opens in Edge. So can someone please tell me how to attach this file so I can send it to my friend? I know how to attach a file but I’ve never sent a PDF to someone or at least not one that opens in Edge. Really hope someone can help me as I really want to get her feedback!! Using latest versions of Edge, Jaws, Microsoft 365 and Windows 11.

Hi Bill:

 

Another way to do this is to invoke the Print function and select Microsoft to PDF as your printer.

Hi, Curtis and Madison. I have found that, with many pdf files, there is no download button, and the page wants to save as an html document. The only way I have found to get around this is to set Microsoft Edge so that, instead of viewing the file in Edge, it downloads the file when you click on the pdf link.

Madison:

 

You must first save the PDF somewhere on your computer’s hard drive. If it opens up in Edge, you may find a Download button near the top of the first page. Or, try pressing Control S to see if the Save dialog wants to save the file as a PDF.

 

Cordially,

Hi, Madison. The first thing you want to do is to locate the pdf file on your drive. Once you have done that, copy the file, not the file contents, to the clipboard with CONTROL plus C. In other words, don't open the file, just copy it to the clipboard, once you have Arrowed to it.

 

Once this has been done, Open Outlook, and start a new message to the recipient. Once you are in the body of the message, and have typed the message, press ENTER at the end of the message, so there is a blank line at the end of your message.

 

Find the blank line at the end of your message, then use CONTROL plus V to paste the pdf file into the message. The file should now be attached to the E-mail message.

Hi Madison,

When you open a pdf in edge it doesn’t mean you saved it. In order to send it to someone you might need to save it somewhere on your computer and then send it from there.

Madison,
First save the original document/PDF to somewhere on your desktop. You can then open it and it will be in your recently viewed files. Otherwise, once it is saved to your desktop or wherever in your laptop, then you can browse to that location or copy and paste the file into the new email.
