This page provides late-breaking or other information about the OneDrive desktop app for Windows.
You can upload multiple files in batches to improve upload speed.
You can now choose which folders on your OneDrive you want to sync on each computer. You can choose the folders during setup, or at anytime in Settings.
OneDrive and Office 2013 work together so your Office files sync faster and you can work on Office files with other people at the same time.
From File Explorer, you can quickly share files in your OneDrive folder or view them on OneDrive. Right-click a file or folder, choose OneDrive, and then choose Share or View on OneDrive.com.
If your PC is running Windows 8 and on a metered network, you'll receive a message so that you can exit OneDrive to reduce network charges.
OneDrive is part of Windows Essentials 2012, but it can also be installed separately on some operating systems. See the OneDrive system requirements webpage for more info.
This can happen if the Internet security setting in Internet Explorer is set to High, preventing the OneDrive sign-in page from appearing. To view to the OneDrive sign-in page, set your Internet Explorer security setting to Medium-high by following these steps:

If the sign-in page still doesn't appear, you might need to reset Internet Explorer by following these steps:
Close any Internet Explorer or File Explorer windows that are open.
On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
Click Reset again.
When Internet Explorer finishes resetting, click Close, and then click OK.

You can't stop syncing a folder or group of files if you’re still uploading content to OneDrive, or if the item you’re trying to stop syncing has sync problems. Fix any sync problems and wait until your OneDrive is up to date, and then try again.
In OneNote, click File, and then click Share.

You can't unlink OneDrive if you’re signed in with a Microsoft account. If you want to use a different account with OneDrive, sign in on the PC with a different Microsoft account or add an account on the PC with the email address you want to use. If you still can’t unlink after disconnecting your Microsoft account from Windows, contact support so an agent can assist you.
