Share A OneDrive Link Through Windows Explorer

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Windows 8, Windows Explorer

Microsoft’s cloud storage system OneDrive has several new features. Due to frequent requests, Windows 7 and 8 users will have the ability to right click on an item in Windows Explorer and have the option to “Share a OneDrive link”. This will create a sharing link and add it to your Clipboard.

From your clipboard, you can then paste the link into an email, IM, or other message. Microsoft has just started rolling the feature out on Windows 7 and 8. So far, it has not been announced when it will be available for Windows 8.1 and Mac users.

Other announcements on the same date include an increase in space on free storage plans to 15 GB and 1 TB for Office 365 users. They have also lowered the prices on all their storage plans. You can also upload larger files, up to 10 GB. In addition, Microsoft increased the amount of files you can upload at one time. Finally, they also announced you can drag folders directly into OneDrive from a browser (specifically Google Chrome) where folder dragging and dropping is supported.
