Save documents online

Saving your files to the cloud lets you access them from anywhere and makes it easy to share them with family and friends. To save documents online with OneDrive, sign in to Office.

Your files are saved online at OneDrive.com and also to your OneDrive folder on your computer. Storing files in your OneDrive folder allows you to work offline, in addition to online, and your changes are synchronized when you reconnect to the Internet. To learn more about OneDrive, see OneDrive.com
