Description: The following article mainly focuses on the key point of onedrive login. The author is going to show you how you can quickly save files to your onedrive location and how you can sync those files up to your laptop desktop so that you have onedrive documents that are available anytime you are not connected to the Internet.
I am going to show you how you can quickly save files to your onedrive location, after I’ve gone through the steps of saving, I also want to show you how you can sync those files up to your laptop desktop so that you have onedrive documents that are available anytime you are not connected to the Internet.
It makes it very easy to use and very handy as well when you are in a location where you aren’t connected to the Internet, but first of all let’s look at how it is that you can take a document and save it to your onedrive location, I even have a document open here, I’ve generically typed in a header.
When you’re ready to go to save, if you go to file and save as, hopefully this is a location where you’re either already using or you’ve noticed that it’s been there when you save all of your documents, this particular location is the onedrive slash Center School District.
This is your district onedrive location, it is the location where you are saving all of your documents to your cloud storage, select it, click browse, when you do this, a window opens, it asks where it is that you want to save to, honestly I think the only option that you have available is selecting this documents option.
Select i, make sure your file is named what you want it to be named, then click open, here’s where it is, in your own onedrive you will be able to see various folders that you have developed, this is a new assignment for a class that you have going on, let’s make a new folder.
Let’s call it classwork, that’s not a very good name, but you get the idea, with that new folder I can double click that folder and save my research report into that location, I’m going to click Save and let that document save, it finishes saving.
What I’m going to do now is to show you how it is that you access that, we have saved the document, how do you get back to it? If you go back to the student websites on your home page and click on your email location, I know this sounds funny but what we’re wanting to do is to get back to that location where you are accessing your office 365 information.
I’m going to log in as the student, it should take us into our office 365 location, I’m sure that you have already been here to check your email, but what I want to do now is to go into my onedrive, once I’ve logged in, I’m going to click on onedrive.
If you haven’t already set up your onedrive, click next to that, but here is the location where you should eventually get to, here’s the classwork folder that I made, in that classwork folder is my research report document that I saved, you can take a minute now if your teacher wants you to and try to save a document to your onedrive.
I will show you how you can sync up your onedrive to your laptop desktop, we’re back, what I want to do is to walk you through the process of syncing your onedrive to your desktop, this is going to be so handy for so many reasons, but the two main ones are the ease of access and the second one is that it syncs your documents up so that you don’t have to be connected to the Internet to work on your work.
We are still in our onedrive location, you might need to pause for a minute to let all students get back to that onedrive location, we go to the student websites, we click on email, we log in and then click on the onedrive icon, now that you’re back in your onedrive, click the sync option, you’ll get a window that says what do you want to do? We want to sync it now, you allow that Microsoft window that pops up.
We’re going to walk through all of these options and sync up all of your documents, because there aren’t many documents in this particular library, it won’t take very long for it to sync, when you get done, you can click on show me your files, then it shows you your files.
Here’s the thing that I want to point out, underneath your favorites you have this onedrive – Center School District, this is your personal onedrive location, this is very similar to the show point location that you yourself use, students obviously are using onedrive.
Students have the option of renaming this location, if I right click on this location, I can rename it, I can call it my onedrive, you can call it My Documents, you can call it cloud storage, you can call it whatever it is that makes sense to you.
We have it located in our favorites, we’ve renamed it, the final step that I want you to do is to right click this again, go to send to, then select desktop, it made a shortcut to my onedrive folder on my desktop, when I close out of the folder that I was working from, I can come over very easily.
Open that onedrive location, here are my documents, in this particular case I don’t need to go through the student website, I don’t need to click on that student email link and log in to office 365, all of my documents are on my desktop.
You can easily access that through the shortcut on your desktop or through the File Explorer folder in your bottom taskbar, likewise I can go back up to full favorites and then select my onedrive, here are all of your documents.
When you have your research report open, you’re ready to save it, I can do a file save as, since I’ve already saved it once, it’s already going to look back to my onedrive to save, so you can click save because it’s automatically going to save over what you’ve already done.
The other thing that I want to show you is this word document that I was saving for the first time, I can go to file save as, select computer and browse, I can easily access my onedrive location from under my favorites, when I select it, here’s my classwork, if I want to save over it, I can build a new folder, use that folder and then save documents to there as well.
This is the quick overview of using onedrive, if you have any questions, please let me know, feel free to email me, thanks.
