Everyone out there probably already knew this, but I just discovered it tonight..

I happen to be on chrome, but hopefully that doesn’t matter..

So I needed to send an attachment to someone. But, I didn’t have the attachment. It was on another system. So, I did what any computer programmer would do: I attempted something that would work, if things worked the way they should work.

I clicked ‘Attach file’, and a file browser popped up. In the ‘filename’ box, I typed in:

http://www.thewebsite.com/filename.pdf

and clicked ‘open’.

BAM! The upload bar started going, and the file was attached to my email to send. How cool is that? You can attach any file on any website to an email.

(Don’t bother asking yourself why I didn’t just send a URL to the recipient. That wasn’t possible for reasons that I won’t bother going into here)
