OneDrive is Microsoft’s cloud storage solution that is available on the web, mobile devices. It also comes integrated into Windows 10, giving users native access to their cloud-based files.

Setting up OneDrive in Windows 10 is a fairly simple process. The operating system will walk you through the set up process a short while after upgrading. If you dismissed the notification, you can start the process again by finding the OneDrive icon on the taskbar and double clicking it. The icon may be hidden, in that case, click the ‘Show hidden icons’ button to get to it.

During set up, you will be asked if you want to sync your entire OneDrive library, which will download everything in it onto your hard drive. The set up process also gives you the option to select only the folders which you want to sync, to conserve hard drive space, in addition to the ability to fetch files on your PC using OneDrive.com.

Once you’ve completed set up, your OneDrive folder should be up and running. You will find the OneDrive folder above ‘This PC’ in the File Explorer left sidebar.
