Sign in to a OneDrive Account

Learn how to sign in to your OneDrive account.


Product/Version: OneDrive

OS: Windows and Mac OS X

To use any of the options available within OneDrive, including the creation and editing of presentations using PowerPoint Online, you will have to first sign in with your Microsoft account. A Microsoft account is essentially your account on any of Microsoft's services such as Hotmail, Outlook, Xbox, Skype, Live, Zune, etc. In this tutorial, we explain how you can sign in using any of these services into OneDrive.

Note: OneDrive is an online storage space for your documents and other files. Additionally, OneDrive is also your starting point for using Microsoft’s many online services.

Follow these steps to sign into your OneDrive account:

  1. Open the OneDrive site in any browser, as shown in Figure 1. Within the OneDrive homepage, you'll find Sign in option, highlighted in red within Figure 1. Click this option.

    Tip: Don't have a Microsoft account? You can create one for free by clicking the Sign up for free option, highlighted in blue within Figure 1, above.
  2. This opens the Sign in page, as shown in Figure 2. Here, type in your Microsoft account email address within the box, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 2. Then, click the Next button below the email address.

    Note: OneDrive changes its appearance since it’s a web application rather than a desktop program. So, it may not look exactly the same as what you see in Figures 1 and 2. However, the Sign in option should work in roughly the same way.
  3. This summons another window to enter the password, as shown in Figure 3 below. Type in the password in the box shown highlighted in red within Figure 3. You can optionally select the Keep me signed in checkbox, highlighted in blue within Figure 3. Thereafter, click the Sign in button.
