How to send emails and attachments on Windows 10


Here you'll find the steps you need to start sending emails and attachments from your Windows 10 computer.


Sending an email


Before you start sending emails, your email account will need to be set-up on your computer. If you haven't done it yet, have a look at our Setup Guide where you'll find a chapter on 'adding email accounts'.


From the Start menu, click the Mail icon.


From your email inbox, click the New mail button found in the top-left corner of the screen.


Click in the To line to enter a recipient. When you start typing, any matching contacts will be shown. Click on the contact that you'd like to email. You can also type in the email address of the recipient if you don't have them as a contact.


Click on the Subject line to write a title for your email.


You can write your message by clicking into the box and typing.


If you're only sending text, click the send arrow at the top-right corner of the screen.

Adding attachments to your email


To add an attachment to your email, click Attach at the top of the screen.


You can browse through all of the files saved on your computer to choose. Click on the item you'd like to attach, and then click Open.


You'll see the item in the main part of your email. You can add more attachments if you want to, then click the send arrow arrow at the top of the screen.
