I got asked recently about this situation: You receive an email in your Hotmail inbox that has an Office document (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) attached to it. To store it on SkyDrive, do you need to first save it to your hard drive then upload it to SkyDrive? Or can you bypass the “save to hard drive / upload” route and instead save it straight to your SkyDrive account?
The answer to the latter question is yes you can, here’s how:
- The document will open in the appropriate Office Web App viewer. Click the “Edit in Browser” option:
- The document will automatically be saved in your “My Documents” folder on SkyDrive
That’s it, you have now saved your document on SkyDrive without having to download / upload.
