SkyDrive and Office work together
See how to get started
When you download the SkyDrive desktop app on your PC or Mac, your desktop SkyDrive folder is automatically created. Any file or photo you put in this folder will be automatically synced to your other computers that have SkyDrive. And, you can still access your files on your phone. You'll also be able to get files from that machine even if you forgot to add them to your SkyDrive.
Download the SkyDrive desktop app
If you're running Windows 8.1, you don't need the SkyDrive desktop app.
Getting started is simple:
Drag and drop files into your SkyDrive folder to automatically upload them to your cloud storage account. A green checkmark will appear when your file has finished uploading. Whenever you save an updated version of the file, SkyDrive will automatically update your folder with the latest version of the file.
And of course, you can still get to your files anytime from any computer by signing in to SkyDrive.com.
