The title says it all The proud owner of a new laptop asked me how to attach photos to E-mail on their new machine. Attach photos say I - easy peasy.

Oh now it was not-

I too use Yahoo web mail and attaching photos on my XP Pro machine is a simple find click drag operation.

It did not work like that on the Win 7 Acer. After and hour of finding images and trying to get them across to the E-mail window etc I gave up

So what is the Win 7 secret.?

With in the email message window click on insert and you have a choice of photo album or single photo

ICF Thank you Insert allows the images to be included in the text frame of the message - That is well known

Attach is something else

Is there not an attach button as per this guide?

On the Limited Thank you

The Message Window is fine- and attaching works in XP However in '7' the mouyse commands [right click drag etc and other actions] seem different and I did not manage to get the images into position at all.
