Sending a File
probably do most of your daily work in programs other than Outlook. You
might create documents in Microsoft Word or build elaborate spreadsheets
with Excel. When you want to send a file by e-mail, Outlook gets involved,
although sometimes it works in the background.
To e-mail a file, follow these steps:
1. Open the document in Microsoft Word.
The document appears on-screen.
2. Click the File tab in the upper-left corner of the screen.
The Backstage view appears.
3. Choose Share.
The Share page appears. Yes, I know you learned how to share in
kindergarten, but this is different.
4. Choose E-mail.
A list appears, detailing different ways to send your file via e-mail.
5. Click the Send as Attachment button.
The New Message form appears with your document listed on the
Attached line (as pictured in Figure 1-2). If you want to type a message in
the main part of the screen you can, but it isn’t necessary.
