- Place the CD into the disk drive, then select My Computer on your desktop.
- From Windows explorer, click on the drive for the CD.
- Select a file from the CD and copy it onto your desktop.
- Start a new email and add the copied file on your desktop as an attachment.
This will work with files such as those found in Microsoft Office programs, PDFs, and MP3s, but not for larger programs found on CDs that require installation on a computer.
- All works ok but how do I "add the the copied file on my desktop as an attachment to my email"?
- Hello tomahawk. How you attach a file to your email really depends on the email program you are using. But for the most popular email options, like Microsoft Outlook to Gmail, you can just drag the file from the desktop into the email. You can also look for the paperclip icon in the email and click on it to follow instructions to attach your file.
