Printing Email Attachments Quickly - Without Opening the Email

by Yehuda Cagen 15. July 2010 10:45


If you’re like many of our clients, you frequently receive email attachments that need to be printed.

So what happens when you get multiple emails containing multiple attachments – and you need them printed quickly?

Print email attachments without opening the email

Traditionally, we open the email, open the attachment, click ‘File’ and print. But there’s a quicker option. Houston IT Consulting specialist Cheryl Smith has compiled the following steps to opening jpegs, pdfs or any other attachment - without ever opening the email.

(*Please bear in mind that this option does not allow you to choose a printer or certain preferences like stapling/collating, but it’s much quicker to print if these things are not important to you.

Follow these two easy steps:

  1. Make sure the Reading Pane is open. Click ‘View’, ‘Reading Pane’, and select “Bottom” or “Right” (depending on your personal preference)
  2. Right click on the attachment in the Reading Pane, and click “Print”

The attachment will open briefly, close, and print the document on your defaulted printer. This works with any attachment, of any size, saving you considerable time.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our IT support specialists.
