Windows 7: Missing folders when trying to attach to email

11 May 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (I think)
Missing folders when trying to attach to email

When using IE and I want to attach a file or photo within a folder to an email, a few of "MY Documents" folders don't show up when I click "attach" and the IE box opens for downloads showing all my folders in "MY Documents" or "My Pictures." All the folders are there when I use my computer for Office or Windows Photo Gallery. I downloaded another browser and tried it. That works fine but I like IE and don't want to switch. Right now to attach most photos or a file to an email, I have to save it to my desktop so I can get to it to attach to an email. It's only certain folders not showing to try and download/attach from "My Pictures" and "My Documents." I've tried everything I know and have read on Tips for solving....IE. I very novice about computers! Hope someone can help. I can't figure out how to make a screen shot of the browser window that opens when you try to attach a file so I hope my explanation is enough.
