Attaching files to Outlook 2016

In Office 2016, Microsoft is also improving many aspects of Outlook 2016. For example, in the new version you can attach a recent file you have been working on to a new message. To do so simply click the Attach File (paperclip) button and you'll see a list with all the recent files. Then just pick the file and you're good to go -- no more spending time browsing your computer for a specific document.


Also, Microsoft is making it very simple to attach OneDrive documents. The attachment works in the same way as a local file, but for OneDrive files, Outlook 2016 will create a special cloud attachment link. When the recipient double-clicks the attachment, the document won't download and open with the default app. Instead, the document will open in the web browser.
