OneDrive File Attachments

Brass Contributor

Is anyone aware of a way to make all of the applications in the Office suite defualt to sending a file either when shared from an application such as Word or Excel OR from Outlook as a file rather than a link to the file in OneDrive?


Basically, sharing files as OneDrive links is causing some confusion in our environment and we'd like to default to the old school method of attaching the file itself to an email rather than a link.


Thanks in advance,

I know we can control them in OWA (, but there wasnt any option/GPO setting in Outlook the last time I looked.

The only workaround I found was adding the insert file shortcut to the top menu, it's really annoying that you can't override this, not even via GP Gideon
