Microsoft OneDrive

Microsoft OneDrive is a file hosting service and synchronization service operated by Microsoft as part of its web version of Office. First launched in August 2007, OneDrive allows users to store files and personal data that syncs files across Android, Windows Phone, and iOS mobile devices, Windows and macOS computers. Users can upload Microsoft Office documents to OneDrive.

How to log in: There are two ways to access OneDrive.  The first is through the Office 365 link, under portals, on the Lindenwood University webpage (  Once signed in, go to the OneDrive web app on the home page of Microsoft 365 (Formerly Office 365). The second is the desktop app. Go to the Start menu, type OneDrive and select to open OneDrive App.  Enter your LU email into the box that opens and click Sign In. Next is setting up your OneDrive folder.  On the OneDrive folder screen, select Next to accept the default folder location for your OneDrive files. If you want to change the folder location, select Change location - this is the best time to make this change.

On the All your files, ready and on-demand screen, you'll see how files are marked to show them as online-only, locally available, or always available. Files On-Demand helps you access all your files in OneDrive without having to download all of them and use storage space on your Windows device. Select Next.

Note: If you were already syncing OneDrive for work or school to your computer (using the previous sync app) and you've just installed the sync app, you won't see the This is your OneDrive folder or the Sync files from your OneDrive screen during OneDrive Setup. The sync app automatically takes over syncing in the same folder location you were using before. To choose which folders you're syncing, right-click the blue cloud icon in the taskbar notification area, and select Settings > Account > Choose folders.
