If you have win8 onedrive is built in. Don't download and install it on windows 8 or 81.

maybe my referral link :)
Refer OneDrive to a friend and both of you will receive +500 MB. Refer up to 10 friends.

Sometimes the Microsoft and related websites act bratty when you're not using Internet Explorer.

The image you posted, big al, looks like Firefox. Do you get the same response when you try the same thing using Internet Explorer as the browser?

Wish I had gotten here earlier, but I am out of town. Mikie hit a home run with his referral. You needed the download to utilize OD. Once you got it you are all set. It will also need to be added to any devices if you intend to utilize It on them.

Usually I put a folder within my Pictures folder, then Right click and press share.
It will give you the option to email the share, probably the best way,,, or get a web link to it.

I think if you email the share to another user with OneDrive and use their Microsoft OneDrive Account email. They will have the option for sort of automatically seeing the pics and can mark them if they wish Online-Only so as not to actually download tons of files to their hard drive.

Lots of OneDrive info . on their forums..
