Excel 2010 Was Easier To Send As Attachment
Excel 2010 had a fast way to save and send a file as an email attachment: Alt-F-D-A. It was quick and easy, using only the left hand.
But The 2013 File Tab Reorganization Killed It
In Excel 2013, this great send-as-attachment shortcut has unfortunately morphed into a more difficult one — Alt-F-H-E-A — as shown below. It’s more letters, plus you need your right hand to type “H” (or you can drift your left hand over). If your hands are always on the keyboard, this won’t matter as much. But I prefer keeping my right hand on the mouse (not the keyboard).
The the Send As Attachment shortcut is about 1-2 seconds slower in Excel 2013 than Excel 2010.
Here are the shortcuts:
Send As Attachment (Excel 2010): Alt-F-D-A
Send As Attachment (Excel 2013): Alt-F-H-E-A
