Over the last week or so, Google has been rolling out a new way of working with email attachments. The screenshots below will hopefully help you.

First off, you will notice that attachments are now presented to you in a new format. No longer are they shown in a kind of list style; rather, they are now display as a thumbnail image.
Second, as you hover over the attachment, you will notice the thumbnail changes to display the title of the attachment. You will also notice two small boxes. The one on the left () is used to download the attachment to your local computer. Clicking on this button will cause the system to prompt you for a place to save the attachment (or will automatically save it to your Downloads container, depending on your settings).
Third, as you hover over the attachment, you will also notice a Google Drive button () on the right. Upon clicking this button, the system will show you a list of your Google Drive folders. If
you simply click Done, it will put the attachment in your My Drive container. Optionally, you can drill down to a specific folder and save it there.
