Work with your files wherever you are

OneDrive gives you anywhere access to all your files, seamlessly integrated with Office and pre-installed with Windows. Automatically sync your files to your desktop so you can work with files offline. Access files on Windows, Mac, or your mobile devices. Preview more than 270 common file types such as Adobe files (PDF, Photoshop, Illustrator, and others), Visio files, DICOM medical images, and more right from your browser. You can even stream HD video on demand via your browser—without downloading.

Share inside and outside your organization

OneDrive is the simplest way to share and collaborate on files inside and outside your organization. Track the history of all activity on files to keep everyone on the same page. Confidently share your files so other people can access them seamlessly and securely. And use SharePoint for more advanced collaboration with your teams, including managing and sharing files or folders—within team sites or intranet sites, and across your organization.

Find, co-author, and update files

Work on a file, save it directly to OneDrive or SharePoint, and any changes you make are updated seamlessly. Deep integration with Office lets you start co-authoring a document on one device and finish co-authoring it on another, and you can select from a variety of tools to annotate, highlight, and comment on it. Find any file you’re looking for quickly with powerful search and discovery tools, and then get intelligent insights about it, such as how many people viewed or shared it.
