Download files and folders

  1. On your OneDrive, select the files or folders you want to download.
    • To download individual or multiple files, select each item by clicking the circle check box that appears. (The left image below shows items in List view, the right image shows items in Tiles or Photos view.) (You can also select several files at once by selecting one file, scrolling down the list, then hold down the Shift key while left-clicking the last item you want to select.)

    • To select all files in a folder, click the circle to the left of the header row, or press CTRL + A on your keyboard.

    • To select a folder, rather than just its contents, you may need to go up or back a level to select the whole folder.

2. In the top navigation, select Download. (You can also right-click the file, photo, or folder, and select Download.)

If your browser prompts you, choose Save or Save As and browse to the location where you want to save the download. (Some browsers just start saving right away to a Downloads folder on your computer.)

Make files available offline in a OneDrive mobile app

On a mobile device, you can make files available offline, which is similar to downloading files. From the OneDrive app in iOS, Android, or Windows 10 phone, look for the Offline icon ( for Android or iOS, or for Windows mobile devices).

  1. In the OneDrive app, select the files you want to take offline (press and hold a file to select it).

  2. Select Keep offline.
