Microsoft’s OneDrive, formerly known as SkyDrive, is one of the easiest ways out there to quickly save your pictures to the cloud and share with others. Now that Microsoft has been offering at least 15 GB or up to 25 GB of free space on OneDrive, many users are using this cloud storage service to upload and share files and pictures.
Earlier this week, Microsoft even removed the upload file size limit so that users can upload files larger than 2GB. In other words, before this, OneDrive wouldn’t allow users to upload files larger than 2 GB. One had to split a file larger than 2 GB into multiple files to be able to upload files to OneDrive.
If you have been using OneDrive to upload your files and share them with your family and friends, you probably already know how to download individual files or albums uploaded or shared on OneDrive. And if in case, you aren’t sure how to download yours or shared files/albums by others, you can simply follow the given below instructions.
As you likely know, those who have been using the official OneDrive desktop client can easily download all files without having to follow this procedure. However, this guide is for those who want to download files, photos or albums from SkyDrive without installing the desktop client.
Download files from Microsoft OneDrive
Step 1: Visit this page of OneDrive and sign into your account.
Step 2: Right-click on the file or album that you would like to download and then click the Download option to begin downloading the file. Depending on the file or album size, the download procedure might take seconds to hours.
