Is there any shortcut or way to create a shortcut to attach selected file as mail attachment in Outlook. Now, I've to right click the selected file and use "Send To-->Mail Recipient" option. A shortcut will help a lot.
There is no default Windows shortcut, however you would be able to create your own using AutoHotKey
For those who like to work at the command line, check out blat. Once configured, it can be used to form and send a complete email from a single command. Note that blat is a complete mail user agent itself: it does not use Outlook or any other mailer on the PC.
For example, the following command:
C:\...>blat -to email@example.com -subject "Totality" -attach total.jpg -body "Here's that shot of the total eclipse" Blat v2.6.2 w/GSS encryption (build : Feb 25 2007 12:06:19) Sending stdin.txt to firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Totality Login name is email@example.com Attached binary file: total.jpg C:\...>
Sends a photo along with a short text caption to a single recipient, printing some reassuring progress notes along the way.
It is actually quite the powerful tool, and can be handy if you need to have a long-running (or scheduled at odd times) batch job that you'd like to report results from.
If you are in the word document, Alt, F, H, E, A goes through the menu items
File > Share > Email > Attachment.
Edit: You can also use Alt+4
A blank e-mail is created with the document attached.
If you are in Windows Explorer, and have the file selected, Alt, S, E works. However, I am using Windows 8, so this could be unique to that OS, not 100% sure though.
Use the Quick Access Toolbar at the top left of the program. Click on the More button to add an icon, such as 'Email'
This takes seconds to set up and is then on your Quick Access Toolbar to click when you want from Word, or Excel or another Office program. You'll need to add the button to the program you want to send the file from.
If you want a more complex icon such as to Email a PDF of your document, choose More Commands, then from Choose Commands from, change 'Popular Commands' to 'All Commands' and you'll find many useful icons including 'Email as PDF Attachment'.
If you want a quick video tutorial I think I did one on my blog some time ago if it helps.
