Windows XP & 7 Outlook (2007) Email attachments - opening in applications
Posted on 2011-02-10
How can i drag an attachment (as if it were already a windows filesystem file) and drop into an application for opening from an Outlook message.
Currently i have to use some waystation to launder it to get a file handle and then drag that into an application.
Currently I have to SAVE-AS the file first: For instance, dragging to desktop or filing someplace and then going thru the motions to SAVE AS again, but when the dialog Choose File comes up, click on the now-visible same file that i just put there and then drag that file handle into the application to open it.
This seems like a simple thing for Outlook and/or Windows to do behind the scenes to make a file "available" via a convenient dragging operation.
