Get OneDrive on your device

OneDrive is built into Windows 10, so your OneDrive appears in File Explorer without installing an app. You can get OneDrive desktop and mobile apps specific to Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Xbox systems.          


To download the app for your device, visit your app store or the OneDrive Download page.


For more information about OneDrive mobile apps, see:
