One thing that I really appreciate about OneDrive is its convenient option for sharing folders with others. It simplifies collaboration and ensures that everyone is on the same page. In this article, I will walk you through the steps to share a folder through OneDrive.

Step 1: Login to OneDrive

To begin, you’ll need to log in to your OneDrive account. Simply open a web browser and navigate to the OneDrive website. Once you’re there, enter your login credentials and click on the “Sign In” button.

Step 2: Create a New Folder

Next, you’ll want to create a new folder to share. Click on the “New” button at the top of the screen and select “Folder” from the dropdown menu. Give your folder a descriptive name that will make it easy for others to identify.

Step 3: Upload Files to the Folder

Now that you have your folder set up, it’s time to upload some files. Simply drag and drop the files you want to share into the folder. You can also click on the “Upload” button and select the files from your computer.

Step 4: Share the Folder

Once your files are uploaded, it’s time to share the folder with others. Right-click on the folder and select “Share” from the context menu. A sharing panel will appear on the right side of the screen.

In the sharing panel, enter the email addresses of the people you want to share the folder with. You can also set the level of access they have to the folder. By default, they will only have view access, but you can change it to edit access if you want them to be able to make changes to the files.

Step 5: Add a Personal Message

To add a personal touch to your folder sharing, you can include a personal message. In the sharing panel, there is a text box where you can enter a message to the recipients. This can be a brief explanation of why you’re sharing the folder or any specific instructions you want to give.

Step 6: Send the Invitation

Once you’re done with the settings and the personal message, you can send the invitation to the recipients. Click on the “Send” button and OneDrive will send an email to the recipients with a link to the shared folder.


Sharing folders via OneDrive is a simple and effective way to collaborate with others. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily share your files and work together seamlessly. So, give it a try and experience the power of sharing with OneDrive.
