Just installed Office 2010 (after a clean install of Windows 7). But I can't open folders that are on SkyDrive. I've signed in to SkyDrive but there's no option to open Notebooks on SkyDrive . . .

On my PC, I can't open anything on the web . . .

I added a notebook "Test". Here's the home computer, but my other notebooks don't show . . . :-(

at Home, when I go to add a new Notebook, you can see my SkyDrive folders

At work, you can see all my notebooks, including the "Test" one I just added at home . . .

hmmm, I downloaded SkyDrive, but that really shouldn't be necessary for OneNote, should it ? Even so, it's still not available for me to log on to SkyDrive.

Still no option to log on to SkyDrive from OneNote at home . . .
OneNote, home, no loginBut at work, I logged out, and as expected, there's an option to logon to SkyDrive . . .

What do you see when you click on File -> Share? If you have not shared anyting from your home PC yet, then I don't think you will find anything to Open...

You can also share directly from File -> Info by clicking on Share on Web or Network...Share Notebook

paulsauve,

thanks again, sorry I didn't get back to posting yesterday. I see that I now can open my OneNote books on SkyDrive, not exactly sure why, but where I had this on Sat, last night I saw the SkyDrive option.

I'll check again tonight and close this out.
