Unable to find a shared file? Here is Help!

Someone shared a OneDrive (personal), OneDrive for Business or a SharePoint file with you, but you can't find the email message that has the link. No problem. You can click File > Open > Shared with Me. This will show you all files that have been shared with you.

Just click the file name and it will open the file for you from its original location.

Make sure

  • You are connected to the internet

  • The file permission granted to you is still active

  • The file has not been moved elsewhere by the user

More relevant (frequently used) documents will be listed on top.

You must have a live Office 365 subscription and you must have signed into your account (Microsoft or Work or School account) to access these shared documents.

If you have an edit permission, you too can share the same files with others.
