You are able to use the special folder containing your SkyDrive files and folders in your Office applications (Word/Excel/PowerPoint).

If you have not moved your I: drive to your SkyDrive yet, please follow the steps in this article:

To add your SkyDrive as a location, open any of the Office applications. We are using Word in this example.

Open Word.

Click File, Open. From the menu that appears, select Add a place:

Select Office365 SharePoint from the menu on the right side of the screen:

2-O365SharePoint.jpg [ 13.08 KiB | Viewed 26880 times ]

You will be asked for your email address. Enter your full email address and click next:

You will be asked for your password. Enter it, ensure the Keep me signed in box is checked and click Sign in:

Your open menu (and save menu) will now contain a new location named Greeneville City Schools. This is your Office 365 SkyDrive. You may have a personal SkyDrive or one you created on another project. That SkyDrive is COMPLETELY separated from your Office 365 SkyDrive. You ALWAYS want to save to your Greeneville City Schools location:

Once you click Greeneville City Schools, you may click Browse at the bottom of the list to locate your files:

When you click Browse, you will be shown a list of locations. In the left pane of the window that opens, click on SharePoint (I know this is confusing, but SharePoint here is your SkyDrive):

The document libraries you are syncing to your computer will be shown. In this picture, my SkyDrive is named Administrator. I am also syncing another document library (more on that in another article). Click the only link, or the one containing the file(s) you want to open or save:

You will see the folder you created in the article referenced at the beginning of this article (the one explaining how to move your I: drive to your SkyDrive). Click the Documents folder:

You will see your files and folders. Locate the file you wish to open (or the location to which you wish to save your file) and open or save as you normally would in an Office program:
