Add and sync shared folders to OneDrive

Add a shared folder to your OneDrive

Sign in to OneDrive on your browser.

  1. In the OneDrive navigation pane, under OneDrive, click Shared. Folders you can add to your OneDrive are marked Can edit.

  2. Find the folder you want to add, and click the circle in the folder's tile to select it.

  3. Click Add to my OneDrive. Or, if you prefer, you can right-click the folder and then click Add to my OneDrive.

Important: The Add to my OneDrive option isn't available when:

  • You're signed in with a work or school account.

  • You've already added the folder to your OneDrive, or you have more than one folder selected. (You can't add multiple folders at the same time.)

  • The item you're trying to add isn't a folder. (Add to my OneDrive isn't available for individual files or for collections of files such as albums.)

Tip: If you don't want the folder contents to sync and be shared, you can click Download. This copies the folder and its contents to your computer, not to your OneDrive. The files are available for you to edit offline, but you would not see updates made by others, and they would not get updates you make.
