The first step is to ensure that your Xbox is connected to your OneDrive account. To do this:

  1. On your Xbox, go to the Settings tab.
  2. Select the Account option and then choose Linked social accounts.
  3. Scroll down and select OneDrive.
  4. Follow the on-screen prompts to sign in to your OneDrive account or create a new one.

Now, let’s capture some incredible gameplay moments that you want to save to OneDrive:

  1. Start playing your favorite game on Xbox.
  2. When you encounter a moment you want to record, double-tap the Xbox button on your controller.
  3. A capture menu will appear at the bottom of the screen. Select “Capture” to save the last few seconds of gameplay or “Record from now” to start a new clip.

Remember, Xbox automatically records the last 30 seconds of gameplay, so if you’ve just experienced an epic win or an unexpected twist, you can save it even after it happens!

Step 3: Save your clips to OneDrive

  1. After capturing your clip, a notification will appear in the top-right corner of the screen. Select it to open the “Capture & Share” menu.

Once your clip is saved to OneDrive, you can access it from any device with an internet connection. It’s a convenient way to keep your gameplay clips organized and easily accessible.

Step 4: Share your clips

Now that your gameplay clips are safely stored in OneDrive, you can easily share them with others:

  1. Go to the OneDrive website or open the OneDrive app on your mobile device.
