How to Email Multiple Files as a Single Attachment

Have you ever had to email a bunch of photos or other files to someone else?

If so, you probably had to send all of those files as attachments in a series of several different emails.

Luckily, there’s an easy way to email lots of files as one single attachment.

All you have to do is place all of the files you wish to send into a compressed ‘zipped’ folder. Here’s how to create a zipped (compressed) folder:


1 – Right-click on the Windows Desktop, then click New>Folder.

2 – Give the new folder a descriptive name. For example, if you want to email a bunch of wedding photos you could name the folder JohnsWeddingPics or something similar.

3- Copy all of the files you want to send in an email into your new folder.

4 – After you have placed the last file into the folder, right-click on the folder and select Send to>Compressed (zipped) folder.

Note: If you have a Mac right-click on the folder and then click Compress [name].

That’s all there is to it. Now you can attach the zipped folder you just created to a new email message and send all the files to the intended recipient in one fell whoop.
