    Windows desktop:
    Managing attachments

    This course is for anyone with a Windows desktop computer who wishes to learn how to safely manage files and documents attached to emails.

In this course, we show you how to safely save and check an email attachment for viruses using the Windows Defender feature of Windows 10, how to attach a document to a new email, and how to share and print files you have received.
