By default, Microsoft Excel and Word 2016 doesn’t have the useful “Send to Mail Recipient” option available on the toolbar. The option enables users to quickly access their email client to send documents. Here’s how to add it.
- Select the small down arrow on the right-hand side of the Quick Access Toolbar, and select “More Commands“.
- Under the “Choose commands from” list, select “All Commands“.
- Select “Send to Mail Recipient“, and then select “Add“.
4. Select “OK” and the icon is added to the top-left toolbar.
Now the option will be available on the toolbar located at the upper-left corner of the window.
I performed these steps, but when I select the button, nothing happens. Why?
You might need to select a default email client in Windows. You can usually do this by going to “Control Panel” > “Programs” > “Default Programs” > “Set Default Programs“.
