OneDrive System Requirements

The OneDrive desktop app requires the following:

  • Operating system: 32- or 64-bit version of Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7, or Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 and the Platform Update for Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2008 with Service Pack 2 and the Platform Update for Windows Server 2008, or Mac OS X 10.7.3 or later.

  • Processor: 1.6 GHz or higher, or Intel-based Mac computer

  • Memory: 1 GB of RAM or higher

  • Resolution: 1024 × 576 minimum

  • Internet connection: High-speed Internet access is recommended.

The OneDrive mobile app requires one of the following:

  • A phone or tablet with Android 2.3 or later (Android 4.0 or later for Camera Backup and other features)

  • An iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 6.0 or later

  • A phone running Windows Phone 7.5 or later.

For the best experience on the OneDrive website, we recommend using the latest version of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.


  • The OneDrive desktop app isn't supported on Windows XP or Linux.

  • OneDrive desktop app functionality is built into Windows 10 and Windows 8.1. If you try to install the desktop app on a PC running Windows 8.1, Setup won't appear. A setting will be installed that lets you use Office to work on OneDrive documents with other people at the same time, but no other features will be installed.
