Save and share a presentation to OneDrive

You can save a PowerPoint presentation to OneDrive to make it easier to access, store, and share your files in the cloud.

Important:  This feature doesn’t support synchronization between OneDrive and your local drive in Office on a Windows RT PC. However, you can open and save your presentations to your OneDrive by clicking the File tab and then clicking the Open and Save tabs.

  1. To set up a free OneDrive account, you must have a Microsoft account. See Sign up for a Microsoft account.

    Note:  If you already have a OneDrive account, skip to step 2.

  2. Sign in to OneDrive with your Microsoft account.

    Note:  If you have never saved to the cloud, in PowerPoint, you’ll start by adding a cloud service, such as OneDrive, to your list of places. If you have already added OneDrive as a Place in PowerPoint, go to step 5.
