Once you’re signed in to your Microsoft account, here are a few of the things you’ll be able to do with OneDrive:
Access your files anywhere: When you save your files to OneDrive, you’ll be able to access them from any computer, tablet, or smartphone that has an Internet connection. You’ll also be able to create new documents from OneDrive.
Back up your files: Saving files to OneDrive gives them an extra layer of protection. Even if something happens to your computer, OneDrive will keep your files safe and accessible.
Share files: It’s easy to share your OneDrive files with friends and coworkers. You can choose whether they can edit or simply read files. This option is great for collaboration because multiple people can edit a document at the same time (this is also known as co-authoring).
Saving and opening files
When you’re signed in to your Microsoft account, OneDrive will appear as an option whenever you save or open a file. You still have the option of saving files to your computer. However, saving files to your OneDrive allows you to access them from any other computer, and it also allows you to share files with friends and coworkers.
For example, when you click Save As, you can select either OneDrive or This PC as the save location.
To open an existing workbook:
In addition to creating new workbooks, you’ll often need to open a workbook that was previously saved.
* Navigate to Backstage view, then click Open.
* Select Computer, then click Browse. Alternatively, you can choose OneDrive to open files stored on your OneDrive.
The Open dialog box will appear. Locate and select your workbook, then click Open.
* If you’ve opened the desired workbook recently, you can browse your Recent Workbooks rather than search for the file.
