If you have previous experience with Dropbox or similar services, you'll find OneDrive familiar starting out. However, there's an abundance of integrations and possibilities that goes beyond that of regular cloud storage. Here we'll look at some of the key features that we think you might use.

Below you'll see the context menu (when you right click) of a file in the OneDrive folder. In addition to the regular editing options, you also have ‘Share’, ‘View Online’ and ‘Choose OneDrive folders to sync’
Sometimes it might be a good idea to turn off synchronizing for some files or folder. Files that you rarely use, for example large archives with media or picture files, especially if you have poor internet connection. Your files will be accessible online at any rate, and you can chose to synchronize them later. <br />[[File:9. filoversikterMeny.JPG|400px]]

For example, if you chose 'View Online' from the context menu (right click) of the file in your folder locally, it will be opened in Office 365 in your browser. Here you'll find a host of familiar office tools, and much more. You'll also find an overview of files you've recently been working on, files that are shared with you. You can create new files and folders, upload or synchronize to your devices.

===Some Remarks===
Some of the functionality of OneDrive in compromised in Linux. Especially cooperation and file sharing differ from Windows and Mac, where this is easily accessed through the program itself. If you need these options, we recommend using OneDrive through the web browser (OneDrive Online). The regular synchronisation of files is not affected by this and will work through both the GUI and CLI- setup.
