Description: In the article which centers on ymail login, the author talks about how to print or view attachments sent to you in Yahoo mail without having to save them first. You can eliminate the extra steps and the clutter of old downloads with these easy steps.
If you’re using Yahoo Mail and someone sends you an attachment, you may not want to save it. You may want to print it or open it up. But that’s not an easy thing to do. If I click on this email, it loads, you can see the red rectangle.
It shows you that you have an attachment. In this case, it’s red because it’s a PDF. It would be blue if it was a Word document. You go to download, click on it. The only option that you get is to save or cancel, but you need to open it or you need to print it.
I am going to show you a way that you can get those options using Windows by doing this a little bit differently. You can tell that this is Chrome because of the shapes of the tabs up here and the little new tab button. You’re using Chrome.
If you go to the bottom, you can see the circle with the colors in it. Mine has my face on it because I have a couple of different browser profiles but the problem is probably that. There’s two ways that you get around it, but the easiest way is to use Internet Explorer.
If you go down to the Start menu and you click it, there are also two ways to do this, but I think the easiest way is to start typing internet. Then, you can see that Internet Explorer is highlighted. Hit enter, this is Internet Explorer. The other way to find Internet Explorer is to go to your Start menu if you are using Windows 10, go to all apps, go down to Windows Accessories and Internet Explorer.
I went to mail.yahoo.com and I signed in with the same username and password. If I open up this email again, it brings up the same icon, you hover over the icon, the download option is there. But if you click download, it gives you the option to open it, that’s all that you need to do.
You need to open it, from this screen, this is Adobe Acrobat that I opened up because it’s a PDF. If it was a Word document, it would open up Word. Now you can print it, after you print it, you close it and it’s gone. So you don’t have all the clutter of the downloads, you don’t have the extra steps.
If you like this option, come down to the tool bar, right click on Internet Explorer and pin it to your taskbar. That way it stays there. If you close it out, you can launch it again from the task bar anytime you need it. If you don’t like Internet Explorer or if you want something new and more secure, you can also use Firefox.
When you click on it to download it, Firefox will also give you the option to open it. To find Firefox, search for it. It’s the easiest way. It will be from Mozilla. That’s the name of the organization that does Firefox. Download it. Install it. Use that as your browser. If it’s tricky for you to download and install things, use Internet Explorer. It will work fine for you. I hope that this article helps if you are trying to print attachment in Yahoo Mail.
