I'm a "senior", sort of computer illiterate. I need to send 13 pages of documents to my mortgage lender. Do I scan and put in a
file/folder, or is there a way to get them right in the email? All I've ever done is write emails and send them - - with no attachments. Can someone help me with step-by-step instructions? Thanks . . . .

Scan your documents frist save it my documents folder. When you search for these scans. They maybe might bestored in my scans file folder. Most printers give you the option. You select my docomentsand under the name of file click on black arrow change to pdf file. JPEG is for pictures.
Now ounce you completed the scan. Goto my documents and see if you can find it and open it and see if errors occurred. No errors scan cam out good. Now just close it. Now it is ready to be used.
So now we goto your E-mail account. Depending on your e-mail provider. In the email tool bar you will see icons or words. Fronts (Letters type) B (Bold Type) I (Italic type) U (under line) Smile faces( insert smile face) A( Color letter) Chages color of letters. You will see words Send, Save( save e-mal) and Attach( This is for attaching pictures, and doccuments) Icons various for this. Such as here on this web-site it is green icon. papper clip iccon is the most common. Any thing with a piture of a chain icon is for inserting web-links.
Now click on attach when the window drops down select my documents and locate the file you want to send or pictures. Let it load up. Some email accounts show a load up progress bar. Others will just say files are done. Some emails have a limits of sizes a file can be. If for that reason just break down the file size into parts. Like in your case I would send two pages at a time. Where you are trying to send out allot bank documents. This way you won't get upload fail error and the bank wont get fatal down load error on there end. Just number emal them as you go. Make sure you mark last one you send. Last one sent. This way reciever will know.
