Learn how Microsoft OneDrive uses a variety of options to allow you to share files with one or more people.

One of the many benefits of Microsoft OneDrive is its ability to share your files with other people–you can do this a few different ways. You can share files directly from your local computer or from your online storage site. You can share files with one or more people either through email or through a link. You can also determine if you want other people to be able to edit your OneDrive files or just view them. The only requirement is that your recipients must have Microsoft accounts to access your OneDrive storage space and files. Let’s check out the various ways to share files from OneDrive.

First, I’ll assume you already set up and use OneDrive to store and synchronize specific folders and files. In Windows, open File Explorer or Windows Explorer. Open a folder that you sync with OneDrive and right-click a file you wish to share. From the popup menu, select the Share command with the blue cloud icon

At the Send Link window, click on the field for Anyone With The Link Can Edit

At the Link settings window, uncheck the box to Allow Editing if you want to limit the shared file to read-only. Set an expiration date if you want the file share to expire at a certain time. Set a password if you want to secure the shared file. If you do set a password, you’ll need to share it with your recipient separately. Click Apply
