If you are sending an email then I am sure that you are using either Microsoft outlook or web based email services such as Gmail, yahoo to send it. Or maybe you have your email with a domain name such as info@abc.com and you are using an email client software or web based email app from that domain to send the email.

Here I will show you how to send email directly from your Google drive account using an app called “cloud drive to mail”. You have to have a goggle account for that. What you need to do is to connect the app to your Google drive account. When you do so then you can select any file which you want to email. No need to download it to your computer and attach to your Gmail account or yahoo or any other email client software.

1. Go to Google drive and log into using your Google account.
