For Seniors: Share Files on the Internet Using SkyDrive
Windows Live SkyDrive is one of several sites on the Internet where you can store files. Access SkyDrive files from any Internet computer, and share them with friends.
To use SkyDrive, you have to have a Windows Live ID. To do that, visit the Windows Live Home page and create an account (this is an e-mail account but also allows you access many Windows Live services, including SkyDrive).
Sign into Skydrive using your Windows Live ID.
Go to Windows Live Skydrive Home page, type your Windows Live ID and password, and click Sign In. A list of Skydrive folders appears.
Click the folder you want to add files too, and then click the Add Files link.
The Add Files dialog box appears.
If you have not yet created any folders, click New Folder, enter a name for the folder, and press Enter.
Open a new window in Windows Explorer and drag files to the empty box.
Your file is uploaded. If you're uploading pictures, they are automatically reduced in size.
From the SkyDrive home page, you can click any folder and add more files, share files with others, sort the files in the folder, or even create new documents and work on them with Office Web Apps online. When you share a file, a link to the file is e-mailed to the person you want to be able to access it.
