Now I've stumbled across a way to integrate SkyDrive into the Windows file system, and it works flawlessly.
For this to work, you'll need to be using Office 2010. So if you're running the beta, keep reading. If not, you might want to bookmark this page for a few months so you can try it when you upgrade. Here's what to do:
- In Word 2010, choose File, Share, Save to Skydrive. If necessary, log in to your SkyDrive account.
- Click Save As.
- When the Save As dialog box appears, cancel it.
- Choose File, Open. The dialog is now pointing to your SkyDrive account.
- In the location field at the top of the dialog box, drag the folder icon into the Favorites list. Right-click and rename it if you want to.
Why does it work? I have no idea. But it does. Enjoy.
