Re: Using Win10's Mail App

After opening a message containing an attachment, you will be focused in the message part of the window.  Press shift+tab and you will move focus to the attached file, press applications key and a pop-up window opens giving you the option to open or save the attachment.

Having looked at the tutorial, I find that, while in a message, pressing the Alt key brings up the list of actions, the same as the context menu, it doesn’t bring up the ribbons. Has all this been updated? or is my Mail app messing me about?

I have only just decided to have another go at the mail app in W10, I can do most things, but I can’t save an attatchment, is this in the ribbons?


Comments please?


Best Regards, Jim.

If you go to the following link off my website at

Then jump down by headings until you get to the windows 10 mail app section there is a tutorial which was created by David.


Hope it helps.
