    Fastest way to open SkyDrive?


    I'm trying to figure out the fastest possible way to open the Skydrive.

    Is there a windows shortcut to access the skydrive in Windows 8.1?



    What's the fastest way possible to access the Skydrive?

    Currently I click the "Windows Key" + the "E" key to open explorer, and then I click on Skydrive.

    Is there a shortcut to open the Skydrive directly?

    I appreciate your thoughts and time.

    Hello Doubts,

    Your SkyDrive folder is located at the path below. If you like, you could create a shortcut of it, then either "Pin to taskbar" or put where you like (ex: Desktop) to use it at.

    C:\Users\(user-name)\SkyDrive

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
