    Is the file saved on your OneDrive?

    If you used step 3 in Option One of this tutorial, then you shouldn't have OneDrive showing up in Windows 8.1. However, double check using the tutorial below to make sure that you do not have your Documents folder set to save to OneDrive.

    I'm probably messing up. I was logged into my local account and I ran the registry changes to enable integration. Then I went to the app screen and signed up for OneDrive using my Microsoft account. I was told to sign in with my Microsoft account. I went back to my desktop and I still don't see the OneDrive in my file explorer.

    Hello Grandpa, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    OneDrive integration is enabled by default in Windows 8.1. However, you must sign in to Windows 8.1 with a Microsoft account instead of a local account to have OneDrive available.

    You could either create a new user account that is a Microsoft account to sign in to Windows with, or you could switch your local account to be a Microsoft account instead.

    User Account - Add a New User in Windows 8

    OR

    Microsoft Account - Switch to in Windows 8

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn

    Setting up OneDrive On Local Account...


    Many thanks for getting back to me so quickly. My problem is I would very much like to have a local account. There are 10 village board members that will be getting these tablets and the hope was to use one OneDrive account to pass documents back and forth. Also, we do have a turnover of board members so giving each one their own user account and own password is preferred. This was available on Windows 7. is there any way to use a multiple local accounts with one OneDrive account? Thank you...

    That's ok. If you like, you can always log in to your online OneDrive at the Microsoft link below in your web browser while signed in to Windows 8.1 with a local account. You can upload and download files from your OneDrive online.

    Dan,

    You would need to update to Windows 8.1 to see the same.

    Hello guys!
    I am interested if synchronization (via this registry key) is disabled only for files or for all user settings and preferences which are saved in OneDrive?
