  1. Cannot attach compressed photos to an outlook email


    It used to be that when you attach pics to an outlook email there was an option to compress. That option is still available from Internet Explorer: when I select the pics then click email I can chose the size and "attach". For a couple of seconds the computer does something - compressing and attaching I presume - but then the trail runs cold. there is no email with the attached compressed pics. Ideas?

    :)

    How to resize photos to attach to email (gmail)

    How do I resize photos in Windows 10 to attach to my gmail email? I do not want to use Outlook. If I right click on the photos to send them to a zip folder, it saves the photos in the folder but does not compresses them. What am I doing wrong?
