So others send their files and photos to your email address. Now you need to get them out of Windows Live Hotmail and onto your lap- or desktop. Fortunately, there's a way to save attachments that just works — and one that lets you download multiple attached files in one go.
Download Attachments from Windows Live Hotmail
To download a single attached file from a message in Windows Live Hotmail:
- Click the name of the attached file in the attachment area just below the message's recipients and above the message text.
- Depending on the browser your use, click Save or merely watch the download happen.
To download all documents attached to a message compressed into a single zip file:
- Click Download all attachments in the message's attachment area.
- Save or directly open the zip file named like the message's Subject: line.
