​​​How do I set the view in Outlook to see attachments?


In Outlook 2010 to 2016, from the top navigation bar, click on View, then Change View. 


Note: In Outlook 2016, there are Advanced View Settings.  Compact Advanced View can include filters which can be set to block the view of attachments.

In the menu, changing the view by clicking view, reset view, will restore the view.


In Outlook 2010+, the conversation view may be collapsed, with attachments not visible.  To view full conversations, click on View, Conversation Settings,  Always Expand Conversations

In conversation mode, to find the attachment within a message, you will need to expand the parent email by clicking on the parent email and then click on the White Triangle.  This will expand the email chain.  Click on the White Triangle again to show all email and attachments within the email chain.
