If you have a Windows Live account (hotmail address, live messenger account, xbox...), you automatically have a 25 GB free online storage space called Skydrive. One of Office 2010's novelty is the ability to save your documents to Skydrive with a simple click. Explanations in the rest of the article.

Take the example of a Word document to be saved on SkyDrive.

Click on File, Save and send and finally on Save in the website.

You can now find this document in the Skydrive online space by logging in to your account Live and by clicking on the link Storage Skydrive.

Note that you need to open the folder My documents to see the Word document that we have just created before.

If you click on it, you will be able to edit it directly in your browser using Office Web Apps, the version of Office Online if you wish.
