Use OneDrive for Business

If your AppStream 2.0 administrator has enabled this file storage option, you can add your OneDrive account to AppStream 2.0. After you add your account and sign in to an AppStream 2.0 streaming session, you can do the following in OneDrive:

  • Open and edit files and folders that you store in OneDrive. Other users cannot access your content unless you choose to share it.

  • Upload and download files between your local computer and OneDrive. Any changes that you make to your files and folders in OneDrive during a streaming session are backed up and synchronized automatically. They are available to you when you sign in to your OneDrive account and access OneDrive outside of your streaming session.

  • When you are working in an application, you can access your files and folders that are stored in OneDrive. Choose File, Open from the application interface and browse to the file or folder that you want to open. To save your changes in a file to OneDrive, choose File, Save from the application and browse to the location in OneDrive where you want to save the file.

  • You can also access OneDrive by choosing My Files from the top left of the AppStream 2.0 toolbar.
