How to get old Office shortcuts working?

Hi Experts,

We recently installed office 2016 and I'm having a hard time to get simple things working just the way they always did.
for example the following
1- When selecting and right clicking on a word typed in new email, why is the copy option not avail? (see attached)
2- When selecting a file to attach, I dont immediately get to see My Computer (see second attachment).
3- When I finally get to select a folder and realize have to move up one level, that option is gone..

Wondering how can I just get back my old tools/shortcuts working properly?
Thanks in advance.

I guess you have to get used to the "modern" interface.
1. Your screenshot does not show you selecting anything, see my GIF attached.

2. By Clicking the "Attach File" option in Outlook 2016, it will show you the most recent created files, (many times fails to provide the most recent files, but this is the intention) this is very useful when you are done downloading a file or creating one and you need to send it tom someone.
3. When you click on the "Browse This PC", initially it will take you to Documents, but once you browse to a different location it will open to that location. Also, you can move one level up by modifying the address bar or by clicking in the left pane

1. I set up a test to duplicate what you said and the copy option is working fine.

2. When you attach a file, it lists recent files (very handy) and then Browse this PC. That DOES go to My Documents. For me that is where most things are.

3. Not gone for me.

Try two things:

1. Uninstall Office, restart, install again and patch completely.

2. Make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows account and test again.

Guess with copy/paste you were right.
Re selecting My Computer, is there a way I should always have that option avail at the left w/o having to scroll up/down like shown in attached?
and about moving up a level, see attached how that is not avail here, where can I find it?
3. Not gone for me.
Can you post a screenshot?
Thanks for requesting that info.

Re:  I press Up arrow and it just moves up a level leaving everything else the same.

And also I am not using Windows 7 which may change things.

For going a level up, I don't have a solution for you, either browse or modify the address bar. For your question
is there a way I should always have that option avail at the left w/o having to scroll up/down like shown in attached?
You will need to add the Attach File button, here is how:

A. Right Click on blank space in the ribbon and click "Customize The Ribbon" Step1.pngB. Create a new group in the "New Mail Message > Include Tab"  step2.pngC. Click the "Attach File" button and add it to the new group. Step3.png
D. Finally you will see two attach buttons, one which will directly open you the browse window. Final.png
