How to save changes attached fil from Outlook email without choosing the location, juste save it in the email

Hi,

People in Outlook 2007 could open a attached file (excel, word....)in a Outlook email, work in it and just choose "save" instead of "save as". The file was save but in the email (and in temporary file). Now, with Office 2013, they cannot anymore.

Any ideas ??

Regards,

If you add the Edit Message button to the QAT or Ribbon on a message (NOT the main Outlook window), its very easy to get into Edit mode. To add the command to the QAT (or ribbon):

1. Open a message

2. Go to File, Options, then choose Quick Access Toolbar

3. Select All Commands from the Choose command dropdown

4. Click in the list of commands the scroll down to the E’s to find the Edit commands. (Can press E on the keyboard to jump down faster.)

5. Find Edit Message and double click on it or use the Add button to add it to the QAT.

6. Click OK to return to the message.

The next time you need to edit an attachment and save the changes back to the message, open the email message, click the Edit Message button then open the attachment.

Remember: you need to save and close the attachment then save and close the email message for the edits to be saved. If you don’t want changes saved (such as when rotating images), close without saving.
