While you can browse and view content on without signing in, that's the sum of all you can do. To go further and upload a PowerPoint presentation or another file, you will have to first sign in at using your Microsoft account. A Microsoft account contains credentials you use to sign into any of Microsoft's services such as Hotmail, Outlook, XBox, Live, Zune, etc. In this tutorial, we explain how you can sign into

  1. Open the site in any browser, as shown in Figure 1. Within the homepage, you'll find Sign In button, highlighted in red within Figure 1 -- click this button.
