There are several ways to find all messages that contain attachments. Outlook offers built-in search filters that will show you messages that contain attached files, or you can type in the Search Current mailbox box at the top of the message list. To search all folders, make sure you're currently viewing the Inbox. If you want to search a specific folder, select that folder in the folder pane.

Similarly, when I double click on a pdf-file, it tries to open it with Adobe Photoshop. Eventually, this will work for most pdf-files but loading Photoshop takes a while and only allows me to view a single page at once. That is not something controlled by Outlook but by Windows. Outlook simply tries to open it with whatever application you have set as the default for that file extension in Windows Settings or Control Panel. The next time you double click a file with that file extension in Outlook, it will directly open with the newly selected program. Another way to change the default application for a specific file type, is to do this via the Control Panel. The benefit of this method is that is also gives you an overview of all of the registered file types on your system and which application it is associated with.

The location is determined by the message format. The Rich Text format supports in-line attachments and thus the attachments show up in the body of the message. Plain Text and HTML formatted emails do not support this and show the attachments in a separate line under the message header but above the message body.
