The Skydrive tile is located on the Windows 8 Metro interface.

Once you click on Skydrive, you get to the following screen.

It shows the Skydrive application where you have the following:

  • Documents
  • Favorites
  • Public
  • Shared Favorites

Those names should be self explanatory.

    What’s up with these awful awful AWFUL “inside windows 8” app “reviews”? Come on, you can do better than that! 🙂

      I understand that these aren’t very comprehensive. The truth is that they aren’t intended to be.

      There are a lot of people who don’t plan to install Windows 8 at all but are curious to see what the screens look like. This is for them.

      If I want to write a Skydrive review, it will say Skydrive Review.

        Ah, okay, I was getting a bit worried there :b I’ve been following w8u for quite some time now and these last posts just seemed odd – as if something was missing from them. 

        I mean, what happens when you click “documents”, how does it look then? How does it look when you open a file? etc. It just need a bit more (at least for me, but I can’t get enough O:-)

        But keep it up!

          There’s just so much to cover I want to hit all the surface stuff first.

          Also remember that a lot of people really derive a lot of value from just seeing what this looks like.
