Google Drive: How do I send a document from Google Drive as an attachment via email.

There are a few different methods of getting documents from your Google Drive into your email so that you can send them as an attachment.  The following method is probably the easiest and most used.


1.  Log into your Google Drive/Docs and open the document that you would like to send to somebody.

2.  Click on "File" and choose the "Email as attachment" option.

3.  Another dialogue box should then appear giving you the options similar to those you would get with most email programs.  Just fill in the "To" with the contact you are going to send your file to.  Type in a "Subject" and a "Message".


3.  Before you send your file though make sure you choose from the drop down menu the file type you would like to send it as.

4.  Once you are all done with steps 1, 2, and 3 click the "Send" button.
