Right-click anywhere on the screen to bring up the App Bar.
You will then see an Attachments button in the lower-left corner.

This is also how you add text formatting. (see the other side of the app bar; not shown)

Right click anywhere to bring up the App Bar at the bottom. Click on Attachments enter image description here

You can also use the Windows 8 Share Charm to share Content as Email Attachments. To do so, while using a Modern UI app (not all apps support Sharing though!)

  1. Bring up the Share Charm with Win+H
  2. Select Mail enter image description here
