A popup will appear similar to the following image
 

Click on Browse Server.

In the new window that appears you will see any documents that you have previously added. Documents can now be added to an individual folder or to the whole site. In the screen shot below you will see there are two tabs: 1 for the main site and the second tab for the folder that we are currently browsing (ie Contact Us).

Select the file from your computer by pressing Choose File (this is at the bottom of the screen).

Select the file you want to upload to the site by finding it on your computer. Double click on it to return to the previous screen (image above)
