    OneDrive as a Desktop App in W8.1


    Apologies if this is in the wrong section. I have OneDrive on the web and synced to my android devices. I have just downloaded OneDrive as a desktop app on W8.1 64bit, had to change compatibility so that the install would work. One drive folder is in my users folder, but nothing showing on desktop. I do not want to use the Metro app version, I do not use any apps on my desktop. I do not use Live essentials, and have seen your tutorial. However, after OneDrive installs it does not go to the set up page on how I want OneDrive, so I have the folder but nothing to be able to use/sync it. Mike

    I know but as I said I do not want to use the integrated one because it is an app. I prefer the desktop version.
