Outlook.com Attachments can now be saved to OneDrive in one click



With the presentation of the Windows 10 Technical Preview Microsoft gave us a promise, they said they will develop their future products with the community, with the user. Therefore they have also started the Windows Insider Community so that users can give feedback about the Windows 10 Technical Preview and all it’s features including for example the OneDrive Client. However Microsoft isn’t using this strategy only for Windows 10 also products like Office or Outlook.com are now build on the users preferences.

So Microsoft is now listening more to the user, what he likes, one effect of this new strategy is visible in Outlook.com. According to the official Office Blog the company has included a new feature in Outlook.com which makes it possible to save email attachments directly to your OneDrive Cloud just by right clicking on the attachment. This change was based on the community, because there have been a lot of people asking for this.

Below you can see how easy it is now to save an attachment from your emails to OneDrive. If you use this feature, the selected file gets uploaded to OneDrive by creating a new folder in your Cloud which is called “Email attachments”. There you can find all your saved attachments and you can also access them from all of your devices trough the OneDrive Modern App, desktop App or Web App.

By clicking “Save all to OneDrive” all files of your current email will be uploaded to the “Email attachments” folder in your cloud:


If you want to upload just one file to OneDrive right click on the file and choose “Save to OneDrive”


If you prefer to save your attachments on your local media you can of course still do this by clicking “Download”. Unfortunately it is not possible to select a folder where you want to save your attachments in OneDrive yet, but maybe this will follow soon.
