    Hello commander,

    I would recommend to copy them to the USB drive first. Once successfully copied, you could delete them from OneDrive.

    You could open your OneDrive from within File Explorer or online to do so. What did you need to figure out?

    I can't figure out how to get the videos from onedrive to move to the USB drive. I left click on the videos an a check mark pops up in the upper right corner, but as I work my way down the screen the check marks on the first ones disappear. and there is a list of places to transfer the videos to, not near the usb drive.

    It sounds like you are doing this from your online OneDrive.

    If so, you could download the videos to your desktop, move them from your desktop to the USB, then delete them from OneDrive.

    If you see them in your OneDrive folder in File Explorer on your PC, then you could just copy/move them directly to the USB from this location instead.

    It might be easier for you to install OneDrive on your computer, This tutorial from EightForms should help,


    OneDrive Desktop App - Install or Uninstall in Windows

    You can use File Explorer to rename and delete files, create new folders, and move files around in your OneDrive folder. The changes will automatically be made on OneDrive and your other computers that have the OneDrive app installed.

    Do you see these files from the OneDrive folder in File Explorer instead of Internet Explorer? If so, that will make it much easier to copy/move them where you want.

    Otherwise, you could open the folders in your online OneDrive to be able to select the files in them to move or copy.

    Hmm, I never knew it would be this tough. Everything I find on MS site is a video tutorial how to upload, but never showing how to download.

    Likewise with a chrome based browser you can drag and drop from Explorer to upload. But not to download.

    Edit: OK. I see. It does not support folder download. You have to go inside the folder, hit control -a to select all, then click the Download thingy.
