Lately I’ve been seeing and experiencing more features specific to Outlook on the Web that makes me lean even more towards using that as my primary email client. Sandra Mahan brought this one to my attention last week, and I really love how it combines an email attachment and email content in a way that makes context even easier to keep front and center. Here’s how that looks…
In my Outlook on the Web page, I have an email that contains an attachment. I see the whole email in my preview pane on the right side, and I can click on the attachment there:
When I click on the attachment to open it, a new window opens that has the attachment on the left and the email on the right, allowing me to have both the email content and the attachment side-by-side. And if I need more space for the attachment, I can always click the Hide Email link in the upper-right corner to show only the attachment:
This is another example of how the “cloud first” philosophy of Microsoft 365 is leading to some cool features that you’ll only find on the web.
