OneDrive allows users to download individual files or the contents of entire folders. Downloading these files and folders to your computer on OneDrive is easy if you have a connection to the OneDrive location.

The files and folders you selected for download will be saved by your web browser at any download location. It’s often the “Downloads” folder, but it may be another place. If you select more than one file, the download will be zipped and you will need to extract the individual files before you can use them.

You may not download certain files or folders from the “Shared” view of the OneDrive website. If you want to download the shared file and the download button is missing in the toolbar, click on the name of the person sharing the files and locate the files you want to download.
