  1. Cannot attach any MicroSoft Office file to email


    When attempting any Word or Excel document to email (I have 3 web based email platforms that I've tried including gmail), my browser goes into 'Not Responding' and just keeps spinning. This happens as soon as I select the file I want to attach. I eventually need to kill it from the Task Manager to move on. Any other type of attachment works fine. I found a few similar issues on here and have tried running the following from PowerShell


    1. sfc /scannow

    2. DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    3. DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth


    Any other suggestions would be appreciated

    :)

    Hi Judy,

    Please reply to the questions mentioned below in order to assist you in a better way.

    • Do you get any error message when you cannot attach the files?
    • Did you make any changes prior to the issue?
    Turning off block pop ups may help in getting the issue fixed.

    I would request you to perform the suggestions by Zach Washburn
    from the link mentioned below if you use Microsoft Edge and then check if it helps.
