    • The first time you click OneDrive, you see some setup screens and instructions while your personal site is being set up. You may have to wait awhile and then click OneDrive again before continuing to step 2.

    • If you don’t see the option to drag files, update your copy of Office.

Here’s another way to upload files:

  1. Instead of dragging files, select Upload.
