Here is how you can save all the Attachments from an Office Document in one click
Microsoft is not only the maker of the world’s most popular operating system but it also makes some amazingly useful and productive softwares, especially its Office suite of applications. They are some of the world’s most abundantly used productivity softwares and are used everywhere, from homes to small offices to big enterprise companies. They are so abundant that the ability to use them is considered an essential technical skill to have, be it any kind of job.
While learning to use Microsoft Office isn’t that hard, it takes a lot of time and effort to gain mastery in them, especially with Microsoft Excel and its formulas and more. However, there are quite a lot of tips and tricks that you can quickly learn to be able to learn your way around these tools and use them to their maximum.
One thing that makes these Office products like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint so great is their ability to integrate almost any type of content, from videos, pictures, audio, graphical and statistical data, and more. Sometimes, you just need to extract all kinds of such content from a document to be able to save it. For example, if there is a Word document filled with pictures that you want to save. One way to do that is to simply right-click on a picture and then click on Save as picture. However, if there are dozens of pictures you want to save, this is an extremely impractical and inefficient solution.
Fortunately, there is a trick you can use to automatically save all the attachments in a folder.
Export All Attachments
- Open the Office document from which you want to export all the attachments. For example, we will be using a Word document here.
- Click on the File option from the menu bar at the top.
- Click on Save As from the left-pane.
- Click on Browse.
- Navigate to the location where you want to save all the attachments from your document.
- From the Save as type box, choose Web Page.
- Click on Save.
That’s it. Office will automatically save a web page file (.html file) in the folder you chose and also save an additional folder called ‘Document Name_files’, which will store all the attachments from that particular document, including all the pictures, videos, and any other attachments included in it.
You can manually navigate to the folder using the Windows File Explorer to see all the saved attachments.
