Hi, my name is Luke, and this is can you email an entire folder. A simple answer is yes but you're going to need to zip that folder so what you're gonna want to do is install a piece of that zipping software called 7-Zip. This is available for free at Once you download and install 7-Zip a new option will appear in your right click menu. Simply click on the folder that you want to email, right click, go to 7-Zip and then scroll over to the option that says Add to and then In the same area where the folder is you'll see a new file appear that's called .zip. This file you can then attach just as you would any normal file to an email and email it. Remember certain email clients have a limit on the size of the file you can attach. For Gmail users, this is 25 megabytes and that's it.
