Using Microsoft OneDrive on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install Microsoft OneDrive on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.
If you do the above correctly, the Software will be successfully installed.

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and locate the search bar. Now type Microsoft OneDrive in the search bar and hit Search. You will easily see the app. Click on Microsoft OneDrive application icon. A window of Microsoft OneDrive will open and it will display the app in your Emulator Software.

  • You destroyed my work and job 😔

    By Ibrahim Sara
    They locking me out of my account in any random time does not offer any security to me. I made my account 2 year ago and I did not sent a single email also I have allot of files and data for my company into OneDrive account I Pay subscribers more storage for 7.$ monthly and I got locked out with the excuse that "someone sent from my email spam" and I never used my account to send a single email. Then I had to put my mobile number without even to have the knowledge about what really happened to my account. Support team respond me that we can help you to return your account back , I find that really frustrating and I am really disappointed from the service and also from the costumer support that I talked in my trial to solve the problem because they did not help me at all and they only told me to do the steps which I could do by my self without to contact them. That was a big lost of time for me and I am not making an email address to loose my work and time and get frustrated but to enjoy good quality services and secure.
  • Solid update with the recent version

    By JB_Seattle
    The most recent update is everything I hoped for. I stuck by OneDrive as they slowly made their way to full iOS support. The recent update takes it the rest of the way - it is outstanding. OneDrive for iOS is no longer a second class citizen. The OneDrive app is solid, with support for document previews, Live Photos, caching and better sorting. Drag and drop is also robust and well implemented. Don’t use it as much at the moment on my iPhone but found it pretty intuitive on the iPad. OneDrive is now also fully integrated in Files, if you prefer that. Surprisingly I’m now finding I prefer OneDrive app interface instead - better organization features than Files. Still, it’s nice to use files to throw apps between cloud services and local storage in a unified interface.
  • Better Cloud Choice

    By Merchantshipper
    I use two cloud services. I use the Apple iCloud for work (200GB), and the Microsoft One Drive for personal (1TB). I tried both in order to compare them to see which is better, and I think MSOD is the better of the two. What I especially like is the ease of uploading folders; however, I am surprised you can’t upload folders using Microsoft Internet Explorer. Strangely enough, you must use chrome. The MSOD is better syncing capabilities. I especially like how the MSOD app can be protected With biometric password access. iCloud does not have that, so my files on the iCloud service are more vulnerable. One advantage of the iCloud service is that you can buy smaller memory like 200 GB for $2.99/m, whereas MS sells 1 TB for $69/y, which is high, but it comes with Office 365. Both services should offer 500GB.
  • very disappointed Especially when working with pictures

    By SamS_GTUSA
    I have purchased 365 Licenses for me and my family With which Microsoft offers one terabyte a onedrive, and I primarily use one drive to back up our pictures. I don’t usually write reviews but because I got very annoyed with one drive and it’s slow performance and many errors while managing pictures, I got fed up with it. Yes we have lot of pictures and duplicates, so I have been trying to consolidate them, but every time I try to do so, I get frustrated by onedrive’s perforamce. I try to select multiple file and delete. Not only it take a long time to refresh, and no my download upload internet speed is not slow , I have highest offered by bright House fiber optics. Too many times onedrive will freeze, that is she using a desktop, other it shuts down if I am using the app on my IPhone. Bottom line, I am disappointed the most because my expectations of a paid for MICROSOFT product to be close to perfect and this is exactly the opposite.
  • Used to be good

    By Vanbushi
    I have been using Onedrive for a few months now (1TB). Everything used to work really nice. It was nice to have everything from my Xbox One, PC, and phone all synced up. FIXED -*Since I have upgraded my phone from an iPhone 6S to and iPhone X, I have been having crashing issues. I’ll start the app and it will load just fine. After a moment or two the app will freeze up and crash. I went to the MS troubleshooting page. It says to delete the app, restart the phone, and then redownload the app. I did all the steps. Still having the same issues. I’ll give the developer a week or so to come up with a solution, if there isn’t one in a timely manner, I will be canceling my subscription, and move onto another cloud service. If the app is fixed, I will review and edit my rating. Until then it’s a 1 Star. - FIXED Pros: Nice syncing for all of your devices. Pricing is not bad for the amount of storage you get. Cons: You can’t have more than one personal account synced. I’d like to be able to have my wife back up her phone to my storage, so that I wouldn’t need to purchase an entire cloud service for her. App is currently not usable, crashes upon start up.
  • Double dipping on storage

    By __Richi__
    I had downloaded offline content, about 7GB, not much. Turns out that after the last few updates, The OneDrive app doesn’t see the content and has to re-download the content again. This can be check my going to General-> iPhone/iPad Storage and looking for the OneDrive app. Clicking on each of the items previously downloaded brings up the circular bar that it’s downloading it. The purpose of offline content was so it could be available offline. This doesn’t help. At least if the info that was previously there is not going to be used, let the user know and wipe it out, that way we are aware and can download it in a place where WiFi is good, so when there’s the need to use it (in a Cell location where the signal is bad) at least we can have it available. Not sure if this is replacing the same content or just placing it as an addition download, in which case it’s double-dipping.
  • Great App but doesn’t work on the IPad Pro

    By MarmieMcD
    I have an Ipad Pro recently issued new from my employer. I have a Microsoft 365 account through my employer and I’ve had a personal account for years. I’ve used the one drive app as well for years. However now with the 365 account I started to use the One Note app for both personal and business use. I use it across my iPhone, my iPad and my PC. The features of the App work great on my phone and my PC and even my older iPad2 but not my new iPad Pro. I cannot insert a file from OneNote as it doesn’t even show up as a location when I browse?? I’ve used the CHAT HELP on line and they switched over to an expert but then got a message that the business hours were over and I had to call back during business hours but it was 4:30 EST? This would be a great App if it worked with the insert file feature so that I could make up notes and photos and whatever??
  • Auto camera upload

    By Waffles was taken
    You apparently can not auto upload pics from the camera roll to onedrive for business. This is stupid. Part of what I do at work is take pictures of random stuff that I need keep in onedrive for Business for things like evidence, etc. Microsoft seems to want me to put these evidence pics into a personal onedrive account...I’d get fired for doing that. Microsoft apparently wants me to get fired for evidence chain of custody/ethics/etc violations. Microsoft, this is not incentive for people to use your products. Microsoft, why do you care if ppl upload their camera roll to onedrive for business? So, I’m supposed to get my boss to give me the approval to pay for Dropbox Business subs for my whole team because it would allow us to work on a platform that would not violate various company policies because it would be done at the department level. Microsoft, this is crazy easy to fix, just allow people to auto upload the camera roll.
  • They don't care

    By BrownSugarBritches
    I uploaded nearly 2k pictures. All were easily accessible and available for viewing. One random day 1,600 pics became unavailable. Not able to see them in the app, on the website, the desktop or the laptop. Not able to download and view. Every email I sent was returned with "we think you uploaded them incorrectly", followed by "you're using the old version of the app, you need to update it". Not true. Then it was "log off and log on". For what? And twice they've "escalated" the ticket. NOW, they're just ignoring me. They "escalated" my ticket on July 02, 2017, (for the second time) and they haven't said a word to me or responded to my emails since then. I'm angry but they obviously don't care that I trusted them with my pictures and they lost them. After asking them repeatedly THEY FINALLY RESPONDED LAST WEEK. They said “sorry, seems the files are corrupt, kindly upload them again”. WHATs THE POINT OF LOADING ANYTHING INTO THE CLOUD???
  • Love this mail app for work-issue report

    By Sickntiredofthis
    Have been using this app for accessing work email (exchange server) since last fall. Just like sitting in the office using Outlook on the network. Starting early February, the app began not logging into our mail server successfully even though the correct login info was being provided. We use MDM on our phones for encryption. I could attempt the login numerous times without locking out my network account indicating that Outlook wasn’t actually “knocking” at the n/w door. I had a week or two window of time when the app worked perfectly, then last week, the issue repeated intermittently. Currently it’s working. I’ve also placed a review for MDM. Our IT staff confirms all is and has been good with our exchange server.
