    SkyDrive (desktop) Windows 8.1


    Hello,
    The following question may sound quite useless but.. i'd like to know if skydrive (desktop) can be used on windows 8.1? considering the account running is local yet.

    Hello Simon,

    The SkyDrive desktop app is no longer needed in Windows 8.1 since SkyDrive is now fully integrated in it. Installing the SkyDrive desktop app in Windows 8.1, you will not see any difference.

    The red warning box at the top of the tutorial below has more details on this if you like.

    Hope this helps,
