If you want to attach a document in gmail, you don’t have to click on the attachment icon, find your file in the right directory, and choose it. Instead, click on the document in an open folder in Windows Explorer and drag it into your email. Viola! This trick saved me tons of time because I have often searched for a document in Explorer, and THEN went through gmail to find the same file.
And now Emily has taught me that you can do the reverse – you can roll over an attachment in gmail, click and hold, and then drag it into a folder on your computer.
Love learning things from my students.
