How To Map A Drive To Onedrive

OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage service, offers the ability to keep and reach your files from any location as long as you have internet access. Yet, there are instances when it might be easier to access your OneDrive documents straight through your computer’s file explorer. This article aims to guide you through the process of mapping your computer’s drive to OneDrive.

Step 1: Open File Explorer

To begin, open the File Explorer on your Windows computer. You can do this by clicking on the “File Explorer” icon in the taskbar or by pressing the “Windows + E” keys on your keyboard.

Step 2: Create a New Folder

Once you have opened File Explorer, create a new folder on your computer. You can do this by right-clicking on any empty space in the File Explorer window and selecting “New” followed by “Folder”. Give the folder a name that will help you remember it’s for OneDrive.
