Easily copy attachments names in an Outlook email to the clipboard

By default, there is no feature in Outlook to help copying attachment names in an email directly. If you want to list or copy all attachment names of an email in Outlook, maybe the VBA method can do you a favor, otherwise, you need to type the names manually. Here highly recommend the Copy Names utility of Kutools for Outlook. With this feature, you can easily copy names of selected or all attachments in an email to the clipboard with one click only. After that, just press the Ctrl + V keys to paste them to any other places as you need.


Copy names of selected or all attachments in an email

Please do as follows to copy names of selected or all attachments in an email in Outlook.

Copy all attachment names in an email

1. Select an email containing attachments that you will copy all the file names.

2. Click Kutools > Attachment Tools > Copy names.

3. Then a Kutools for Outlook dialog pops up, please click the OK button.

Now all attachment names in selected email are copied to the clipboard. You can paste them to any other places as you need.

Copy selected attachment names in an email

Except for copying all attachment names in an email, this feature allows you to copy only the selected attachment names in an email as well. Please do as follows.

1. Select an email containing attachments that you will copy some specific file names.
