files attaching as links by default rather than copies

Copper Contributor

Hi there, I have a few files that I need to share as copies rather than links.  When I go to share I only get the option to share as a link and not a copy (when directly sharing from the file eg an excel file)  This is the case for some files and not others.  Is there a specific reason for this? any help much appreciated.

If you select File > Share, don't you see an option 'Send as Attachment'?

Hi Hans, with some files i do have an option but with others I only have the option to copy the link or send the link in an email, no option to actually attach the file in outlook, unless I save the file, open outlook and then attach the file. The share option is really quick when using it from the application but I need to attach the file and not the share link.

Was there ever an answer or solution to this?

Solution is to customize QAT and add Send to it.

I am not familiar with QAT and add Send to it, are their instructions?  This is a recent change I have noticed, did Microsoft make a change in recent upgrade or possibly how Azure/Sharepoint settings are handled?

In Excel File->Options and add Send to Toolbar (former name Quick Access Toolbar)

Interface could be slightly different depends on your Excel version
