OneDrive for Windows 10 is a fantastic cloud storage solution for backing up all of your important files and documents. It also makes it extremely simple for users to access their cloud-based data without ever having to open a web browser. Yes, these aren’t groundbreaking features, but they operate exceptionally well, perhaps even better than other large cloud services we’ve tried. That isn’t a bias on our part since we are Microsoft enthusiasts; it is simply the fact.
Now, if you want to use OneDrive but don’t know how to get started, keep reading for all the information you’ll need. It’s worth noting that OneDrive comes preinstalled on Windows 10, and there’s also a OneDrive app available in the Microsoft Store, but we’re not going to talk about the app right now; instead, we’ll talk about the more powerful default utility.
How to set up OneDrive on Windows 10
The following steps will demonstrate how simple it is to set up OneDrive:
- Add an account and choose the OneDrive folder from the drop-down menu.
- Select the OneDrive folder’s location.
Let’s take a closer look at this.
1] Add account and select OneDrive folder
So, the first step is to open OneDrive and log in with your credentials. To do so, type your email address into the box provided and press the Enter key or the Sign in button.
The next step is to type your password and then press the Enter key once more.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll have two-step verification enabled on your account.
Follow the procedure to obtain a unique code, enter it, and then click Verify.
2] Choose the location of the OneDrive folder
Now you can choose whether to keep the default section or change the placement of the OneDrive folder.
We elected to utilize the default, but if that isn’t the best option for you, click Change location, select the folder of your choosing, and then click Next.
The user should now be able to choose which folders they want to synchronize between their local PC and the cloud.
People can also select to sync all files, but if your account has multiple large files and your storage is limited, this may not be the greatest option.
After selecting Next, things should take a few moments to begin moving. However, once it’s finished, simply select Open my OneDrive folder to see all of your files.
