You can't, unless it is for e-mail attachments you are sending. From a Microsoft rep directly (via this forum which is available now only due to Google cache): there is a feature in Hotmail that allows the attachments that you’ll be sending, to be saved directly to your SkyDrive account. To enable this feature, please refer to the steps below: ...

you can just generate share link via UI (for example: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=CA1656805C59C6C9!174&authkey=!ABYGECM1-9fSPG8), then replace "redir" for "download" (like this: https://skydrive.live.com/download?resid=CA1656805C59C6C9!174&authkey=!ABYGECM1-9fSPG8) and this will be direct download link.

No. You can only change permissions to a file or folder.

Mark the little checkbox in the upper right-hand corner of the tile that represents the document in your SkyDrive. Click on Manage in the bar on the top, then click on Move to. You'll now be given the option to select the target location for your file. Alternatively, SkyDrive also supports Drag & Drop to achieve move operations:

According to this April 2012 answer from Jeff Steinbok, the MS SkyDrive dev lead, file extensions are visible only for file types that SkyDrive doesn't internally support. Internally supported file types do not show extensions by default. Another answer to the same question suggested that users file a feature request. In summary, this feature isn't ...

I don't think there any restriction of the type of files you can upload but you can only edit or create Office files in the browser.

When I go to http://devices.live.com/Devices/SkyDriveSyncedStorage, I see a listing of my synced folders. I have only synced one. Clicking on it takes me to https://devices.live.com/Sync/FolderSelf, which is a view of the folder's contents. Inside there is a PDF document. I click on it, and it opens. I think the confusion is with the naming, the 5GB ...

Yes, they can view. Its no problem for office docs, which can be open directly in skydrive or images you want to see. But you cant send link to file and download it. When you need download, you need to have a live ID.

You can't do this. What you can do is share the document or file you would otherwise send as an attachment. Tick the checkbox next to the document filename Click the Share link on the sidebar From the Share dialog that pops up with various options, you can share directly with another person by emailing them. Or you can click Get a link and select one ...

Whilst the question is specifically about Hotmail/SkyDrive, it may be worth noting that Google have now come up with a way of doing this with Gmail/Google Drive. All it seems to do, mind you, is help you share the document correctly with the people you're emailing to - it still doesn't actually attach it to the email from what I can see. Here's the ...

You can't. SkyDrive does not yet have a feature to rotate photos. PS: After I wrote the above line, I checked the official SkyDrive Help & How To. They confirm what I wrote: You currently can't rotate photos using SkyDrive. If you have the SkyDrive app installed on your computer, you can open photos in your SkyDrive folder and rotate them in a ...

I know how this can be done through the web application through SkyDrive.com. It is actually quite straightforward. In red: the link that is visible on the left menu that allows you to see the files shared by you or with you. In blue: the files shared by you. In green: files shares by someone else with me. Note: certain SkyDrive features are released ...

You could use IFTTT (If This Then That) to do this. Create a filter in Hotmail which forwards mail with attachments or manually forward attachments to trigger@recipe.ifttt.com. Then use this recipe and connect to your Hotmail and Skydrive account.

It is possible to set up an alias for your email address in the country code top level domain. The option is available somewhere in the mail settings. Here are some steps (note that this is using Outlook online): Log in to your Hotmail/Windows Live account. Click on the gear icon on the top right hand corner and select "More mail settings" In the Options ...

Unfortunately, no, there's not currently a way to directly link to a PDF on SkyDrive. The closest you can get—using the built-in "Share" link—will instead open it in Office365's online Word viewer, for whatever reason. You can almost circumvent this by sharing the document, then, in the viewer, grabbing the URL that you ultimately download the ...

I would avoid Google Apps for Business as your primary storage solution. When I was sourcing alternatives, Box.com was the only one that I felt would provide some benefit. In the end, I didn't see enough of an advantage to offset having to spend agonizing weeks migrating our files. Also, it is a lot more expensive; you get what you pay for. My advice is ...

The following steps seem to have resolved the issue: Clear all IE browsing history. Stop syncing all SkyDrive Pro folders (move away current folders to avoid duplicate renamed folders) for the client in question. Close all your Office processes, such as groove.exe which is SkyDrive Pro,msouc.exe, msosync.exe, office library sync via Task manager. Browse ...

There doesn't seem to be any built in way, but I have a tool - DocTo that converts word documents to other formats. If you have Word 2010 or later installed, you can use the following commandline with the docto tool to convert all files in a folder on your disk, then once converted upload them to onedrive. "docto.exe" -f "c:\mydocs\" -o ...

Onedrive 1. Right click the file, for which you want to create download URL, then select share. 2. Then, click on 'Get a link'. 3. Under 'Choose an option' select 'Public'. Click on 'Create link'. Now, you will be given a link. Use that to create direct link. Source: http://www.syncwithtech.org/2014/09/direct-download-link.html

I found this explanation You can't get exact direct link of this demo.zip , but the direct link for the photos, videos, etc. you can. Example: As we can see the complete link of your shorten link ( http://sdrv.ms/13mwN2v ) is https://skydrive.live.com/cid=328ba01b2a22de20&id=328BA01B2A22DE20%21219&authkey=!APtFM-r5ezVjuoc .

UPDATE: The scrollbar appears if you are using the "Entire Workbook" option. I've managed to get around this by using the 'Select a Range' option instead. Which works for me.

Not exactly a bookmarklet, but you can try SDExplorer if you are using Windows. It's an extension for Windows Explorer (adds a directory that links directly to your SkyDrive account), allowing you to save images files from your browser to your SkyDrive account. It should also be able to do what you described (ask to login, show list of root folders, and ...

its not possible, you have to download the file and share to other person.

It is not possible to sync a shared folder. The best option is to download the files/folders and put them into your own Skydrive account.

Here is a workaround. Using the Search Field on the Onedrive page, search for the file extension to get a list of all files with that extension. EX: if you are looking for Photoshop files, enter: *.psd in the search field. While this doesn't necessarily help with all file management needs, it can help find file types until Microsoft decides to stop ...

OneDrive now lets you rotate photos, if you are the owner. In OneDrive, select one photo either by opening it to full screen or by ticking the box. The rotate option will now be viewable. As an extra note, you must be the owner of the photo to get the rotate options. People who you share the photo with, even 'edit' access will not be able to rotate your ...

Actually, there is a "backdoor" method im using: First, share your SkyDrive/Google Drive folder on the local network, giving everyone "full control" (the SkyDrive/Google Drive folders are usually in C:\Users\[YOUR USE NAME HERE]\). Next, use the advanced NTFS permissions to clear all other's rights (ESPECIALLY "EVERYONE"!). Then, add your Windows ...

In short, because of how fragmented and unintegrated Microsoft's various sync and cloud services (not to mention how confusing the names are), this is not possible. The (misnamed) SkyDrive storage associated with Live Mesh does not at all integrated with SkyDrive. Moving files between the two would be a manual process. This is all explained at this ...
