Access your desktop from mobile
If you set Onedrive as the default storage location for the Windows desktop, you can access any files you keep on your desktop from other computers, phones and tablets. When you’re out and about, you can open these files using your phone, just as easily as you would if you were sitting in front of your PC. The host computer (the one with the desktop you are accessing) doesn’t even need to be switched on.
To set this up, right-click the Onedrive icon in the notification area and select Settings. Select the Auto Save tab and set the Desktop drop-down menu to Onedrive. Any icons, files and folders on the desktop will disappear, but don’t worry, they are still in C:\users\ Yourname\desktop. The new desktop is now a folder in Onedrive.
Open the Onedrive app on a phone or tablet and the desktop folder is right there. Any item on your PC’S desktop is available on your mobile device. Equally, if you upload files from your phone or tablet to your desktop, those files will appear on the Windows desktop on your PC.
Install the Word and Excel apps on your phone or tablet and you can also edit any documents that are on your PC’S desktop.
