Opening a File from OneDrive from a Classroom Computer

 

When you open a file from OneDrive, such as a PowerPoint or a Word document, you are asked if you wish to open the file in the online version or in the desktop version. When you select to open the file in the desktop version, you are asked to sign into your Office 365 account. If you do not sign out of your account when you are finished, other users of that computer will be signed into your account when they go to open a PowerPoint or any other office product. This article will show you how to sign out of your Office 365 account when you open a file from OneDrive through the desktop version.

 

1. When you open a file from OneDrive, you have the option to Open in PowerPoint Online or Open in PowerPoint. When you select Open in PowerPoint, the file will open in the desktop version of PowerPoint. You will then be asked to sign into your college Office 365 account.
