When working with Office Online or OneDrive uploading and syncing are fairly simple processes. Learn how to do them here.
After you've been using OneDrive for a while, you might find yourself having a difficult time keeping track of all your files. Fortunately, OneDrive offers several features to help you manage and organize your files.
When you navigate to the OneDrive main page, you'll see all of your files and folders. You can choose which files to view by selecting various options in the left navigation pane.
You can also change how your files are displayed by clicking the Thumbnails view and Details view icons.
You can find documents by using the Search feature. Searching lets you look for a specific document using words contained within the document and its title.
You can use folders to organize your files. Documents can be stored in folders and moved from one folder to another. Moving documents can be useful, as you can share a document simply by moving it to a shared folder. For example, if you're working on a project with a group of people, you could share a folder with them. Then, you could move any files you wanted to share with the group to that folder.
To learn about creating and sharing folders, review our Create and Share Office Documents lesson.
If you have installed the OneDrive desktop application, you can also manage your files using the OneDrive folder on your computer. If you have more experience organizing files on your computer, you may prefer this method over organizing your files online.
