Why can't I attach a file in my gmail. Blaise378 3/29/12 2:26 AM
My gmail suddenly stopped attaching files.
If i click on the "attach a file" button.
it just blinks and nothing else happens.
I also noticed a new button beside it which reads: Insert "invitation".
Please, help me solve this problem as I have important documents to attach that are urgent.

Why is it now that I can now attach my files, when I cannot do it the way we need to do it . Try it and see. But the question is WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE ATTACHMENTS TODAY.

"  I cannot do it the way we need to do it "

There is only one way to attach files to a GMail message. And that is to click "Attach a file", bring up the Windows File Selector and choose the file you want to attach.. 

If that doesn't work for you in "the way we need to do it" , then what do you actually need to do?

What version of Chrome are you using? If you're not on a current version (17 or later), please upgrade.

If you're on a current version and are having this problem, what extensions do you have installed?

This is happening to me as well... I have to use Internet Explorer to Attach files to my gmail account..as opposed to open googles browser to open... googles email...

Use windows update that solved the issue for me.
