Shouldn't Gmail give an option to search the type of file (PDF, Excel, JPG, .exe, etc.) in an attachment?

This is a tricky one as it depends largely how powerfully you computer, the capacity of the click and paste on the mouse. If the picture is already held in an “art gallery” on a flat bed scanner on the hard or c drive of you computer then you can open the image click on it and do a copy and paste in to the body of the e-mail. That often works on larger lap tops and Desk Top Computers and the picture will adjust to the size if the space or once pasted, you can click on the boarders to adjust the dimension. If that does not work the only way is to take a note of the Jpeg address on the computer (open up the image and in the URL line or the actual picture itself there will be a long address which tells you where it is stored within the computer (usually on the c -Drive. If you can then copy that over in to the text of the e-mail as a link and if the person receiving it can click on the link very often the image will appear. There is another option where if you can’t put it in to the actual e-mail itself. You can copy and past the picture in to a word document, play with the borders and then save if off on to either the c drive or a memory stick, give it a name and then close the page. The go back t the e-mail and then use the drive as an address as an attachment to the e-mail and the person at the other end can open the attachment. Alternatively turn the picture it in a Typeable Pdf file, name it and send that as an attachment, However you have to assume the recipient has an Typeable Pdf reader on their system. T can open the Typeable Pdf file from their side. So there are several ways of doing it, but depends how the picture was stored in the first place and in which format. J.peg is often found in the images file in WORD, or if you have a scanner which puts the image as a J.peg file in to a bank of images and when you open up the printer file it has been imported in to that and you can copy and past in to the text /body of your document. It depends on the software and printer system you are using and whether it can store images in its own menu; so really it is a bit hit and miss. Also although the image has imported, it can land up in any drive whether that be the images in your printer’s menu or in some drive of sub-drive on your computer. It can be very frustrating.

Type on PDF: All You Need to Know

The final icon is called the “Not empty” indicator. If the current attachment or attachments are not empty, the icon is grayed-out (Icons are meant to be dark but when the current file is empty the bottom half of the icon is empty). This is a simple way to show that it's a file that isn't currently attached, as a “Not empty” icon shows in addition that there's nothing currently connected to our current mail account. Now a mail client can be expected to display this icon when a file has not been attached for the last 15 seconds. Mail clients can also display this icon in other cases -- such as when the email's attachment status is “pending.” The current and pending icon may only be displayed once at a time, but mail clients can re-generate the icon when they detect it's needed. You may be asking.
