How To View Onedrive Folders Shared With Me

How To Articles

One of the features I really enjoy about OneDrive is its convenient folder-sharing capability. It’s an excellent method for collaborating and working on projects with others. However, what if someone shares a folder with you? How can you access these shared folders on OneDrive? Allow me to guide you through the process.

First, open up your web browser and navigate to the OneDrive website. If you don’t already have an account, you’ll need to create one. Once you’re logged in, you’ll see your OneDrive homepage.

Now, look in the left-hand menu for the “Shared” section. Click on it, and you’ll be taken to a page that shows all the folders and files that have been shared with you. This is where the magic happens.

On this page, you’ll see a list of all the folders and files that have been shared with you. Each item will have a name, a thumbnail if it’s an image, and some other information like the size and the date it was shared.

To access a shared folder, simply click on its name. This will open the folder and show you all the files and sub-folders inside. From here, you can view, download, and even edit the files, depending on your access permissions.

One thing to note is that when you open a shared folder, it will appear as a separate tab in your browser. This means that you can easily switch between your own files and the shared folder without losing your place. It’s a really convenient feature.

If you want to remove a shared folder from your OneDrive, you can simply click on the “Remove” button next to it. This will remove the folder from your shared list, but it won’t delete the folder or its contents from the owner’s OneDrive.


Viewing shared folders in OneDrive is a breeze. Just navigate to the “Shared” section of your OneDrive homepage and you’ll find all the folders and files that have been shared with you. Click on a folder to access its contents and start collaborating. It’s a simple and effective way to work together with others.
