To use any of the options available within OneDrive (previously known as SkyDrive), including the creation and editing of presentations in PowerPoint Online, you will have to first sign in with your Microsoft account. A Microsoft account (previously called a Windows Live ID) is essentially your account on any of Microsoft's services such as Hotmail, Outlook, XBox, Live, Zune, etc. In this tutorial, we explain how you can sign in.
Follow these steps to Sign into your OneDrive account:
- Open the
OneDrive site in any
browser, as shown in Figure 1. Within the OneDrive homepage, you'll find
Sign In button, highlighted in red within
Figure 1 -- click this button.

Figure 2. Then type in the password in the box shown highlighted in
blue within Figure 2.

Thereafter, click the Sign In button highlighted in red
