Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail

If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.

(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

 
 

RIP MacFixIt

Send Article to a Friend

MacFixIt, a site dedicated to troubleshooting news and information for Apple products since 1996, has been killed off by CNET. Ted Landau, who now writes for Macworld, sold MacFixIt to TechTracker in 2000, which was then acquired by CNET in 2007. The original site, www.macfixit.com, now redirects to the Computers section of CNET, though some of its original content can be found via Google searches.favicon follow link

RIP indeed. Max Fixit saved my bacon more times than I can count and was pretty much the way i learned everything about troubleshooting, etc. I sort of lost track when it went to CNET, but I will be forever grateful.
Topher Kessler, the person who did most or all of the MacFixIt writing on CNET has just initiated a blog at http://www.macissues.com/

Thank you for this info.
I used MacFixit for years, and was very sad to see it go.
It is great to know that there is a substitute, that may be even better!
Wow. MacFixit actually was my homepage a number of years ago. People asked me whey I forked over $25 a year to subscribe and I would tell them that since time isn't free (at least mine isn't) MacFixit paid for itself many times over. RIP

I'm glad former MacFixit's Topher has started a new site, noted above.
