    I have no idea what wd.do is; however, you should not need to do anything to send an email attachment if you can already send emails. What email client are you using and can you describe how you are attempting to make the attachment. Specifically, are you trying to attach from within the client or via the "snd to" function? Please be detailed in you response.

    BTW, is this a carryover from your previous attempts to do the same thing? If so, why didn't you just continue with that thread because I was ready to help you with Thunderbird?

    hi,thanks for the offer of help.I gave up on Thunderbird,i forget the reason but I still couldn't send attachments.WD is western digital its an app connected to Microsoft windows 8.when I click to attach a document to email wd fills the screen and says I need to install there app. to make it possible to send attachments.i just received a western digital external hard drive in the mail and will set it up tonite.I'll see what happens.I can try to send email attachments 3 ways thru my Canon scanner with one click scanning,or thru windows 8 fax and scan or thru email as I am creating a letter.My email client. I'm not sure what you are asking but I use Time Warner,and on the start page the tile I think is windows mail,also I have a short cut of outlook on my desktop page plus gmail.

    Hi agian CallMeNick,

    The email client is the specific program you are using when you try and make the attachment. For example, here is how I do it in mine (which is Thunderbird BTW):

    Click image for larger version

    the tile I think is windows mail,also I have a short cut of outlook on my desktop page plus gmail.
    Still need to know which one you are trying to use. How about a screenshot of a failed attempt?

    Hi CallMeNick,

    I am very sorry but I just can't get a handle on your issue so I am hoping that someone else may be in a better position to assist you. Good luck.

I've only been using Windows 8 for a short time. Most things are running well, but this is frustrating. I use Outlook for email. When I open an attachment, the only way I can close it is to go back to the start menu and then back to Outlook. Surely there is an easier way to get back to Outlook.
