Setting up Microsoft Live Office and Sharing folders/docs setup help

I cannot make Live.com Office user friendly. What I have currently done: Is log in to live.com> Office> Create folder> Create Test docs. I have shared the folder with the other emails by "editting permissions" and "sending a link".

I have setup 3 test account emails. One being an admin/owner of all documents and the others users. It seems the only way for the users to access the folder and documents within it, is by logging into their email, finding the invitation email to the folder and clicking "View Link". How can I make it as easy as possible for the recipient of the shared folders/files (once added to permissions) to be able to log into their live.com click on office and see the shared folders and files.

The solution:
You must send an invitation to the recipients email as well as add them to your friends list in order for them to have easy access to your shared files.

You need to add all of the people you are sharing your files with as "Friends" within Windows Live.  You may refer to this solution article How do I grow my Network? for the steps on how to add a friend.


Once the friend request has been accepted, they can now see the shared folder/file by following these steps:

1. Go to http://office.live.com/.
2. Click View all under Shared with me.
3. Look the documents under Shared by <name of person who shared the folder/file>


If you are already friends but they still can't see the folder/file, you may try to share the folder/file again to them using the "Send a link" option.
