To drag and drop one or more attachments:

  1. Select the file(s) you want to attach.
  2. Hold down your left mouse button, drag the file(s) below the Gmail Subject field (Drop files here will appear when you’re in the right spot), and release the mouse button.
  3. Your file(s) attach themselves to the message. 

     

Note: Remember that while you can attach multiple files, the maximum total attachment file size, inclusive of all attachments and the content of the message, is 25 MB.

 

To send a message without a file that has been previously attached, uncheck the box to the left of the file before sending the message.
