The OneDrive desktop application makes it easy to upload and sync files across all of your devices. If you have Windows 8.1 or 10, the OneDrive app is already built in. If you're using an earlier version of Windows, review our lesson on Getting Started with OneDrive to learn how to install the app (if you haven't already). The OneDrive desktop application works like any other folder on your computer. Whenever you move a file to the OneDrive folder, that file is moved online to the cloud, allowing you to access the same version of that file from any computer connected to the Internet.
Uploading individual files can be time consuming. Fortunately, you can move entire folders to OneDrive. Whenever you upload a folder, the folder and every file stored within it will be uploaded to your OneDrive.
