Does anybody know how you send a music file over the internet in Windows 7
If so i would love to know.
In XP it could not be easier but in W7 it would appear that it is not possible.
Unless it is hidden in some strange place.

Are you trying to copy the file from one computer to another over your home network? If so, both computers must be connected to the same network and have a shared folder where the file can be accessed by both computers.

Or are you trying to send it by email? Or are you thinking along the lines of torrents (something I don't recommend)? Your post was not clear as to how to are trying to achieve this objective.

How did you do it in XP? It should be pretty much the same way in Win 7.

It is totally different in W7.
In XP you just right click on the file and you are given the option to send the file to various places including Email.
This facility is not available in W7.

No.i am not in a network
I just want from time to time to be able email various music to my children and friends.
Torrents is of no interest.
The music i am talking about is 50 years out of copyright or in the public domain.
It was so simple in XP but in W7 i can't work out how you do it.
Guidance would be appreciated.
Thanks

Problem solved.
Open email and attach the file and send.
Why didn't think of it before.
Oh well you live and learn.
Thanks for your interest.

That's why I was trying to figure out how you were trying to send it. If you had an email program installed, the "Send to" menu would include the option of sending by email (which does the exact same thing as you manually attaching it an email).

But yeah, the easiest thing to do is just open your email and attach the file.

Happy computing. :huh:
