How to Send Large Files Using OneDrive Rather than Email

If you want to send a file using OneDrive, instead of your email client, the process is simple. Upload the file to your one OneDrive account (you’ll need a Microsoft account to use OneDrive but if you log into your Windows 10 system using a Microsoft account, the OneDrive setup will be automatically taken care of), then generate a link to it. The advantage is that the email will always send, even if the file is too big to attach to a message. In addition, the attachment won’t take up huge amounts of space in your recipient’s inbox and the message can be forwarded faster. It works like this:

  1. Upload the file you want to share to OneDrive. Press [Windows Key] +
    [E] together, then click on OneDrive. Copy the file you want to share to this location, the file will automatically be uploaded to your OneDrive storage folder on the Internet.
  2. Once the file has uploaded, right-click on it and select More OneDrive sharing options from the pop-up menu.
  3. You’ll be taken to the OneDrive folder in your web browser. You can now click
    Share and choose Get a link, or Email, in order to share the file.
