Find shared folders in your OneDrive

In OneDrive, you can see shared folders, both folders that you have shared with others and folders that others have shared with you. You can sync shared folders to your computer, and you can select folders that you want to sync.

See shared folders

Shared folders you've added to your OneDrive appear on the OneDrive website in your Shared view.

If you use the OneDrive sync app on your computer, you can sync the folder to your computer. On a Windows PC, find the folder in Windows Explorer; on a Mac computer, use the Finder to locate it.

Sync shared folders

If you have the OneDrive sync app, but the shared folder does not sync to your computer, you might have selective sync turned on. This isn't common, but to fix it, go to your computer's system tray (if you use a Mac, go to the menu bar) and find the sync app.
