SkyDrive: Microsoft hosts SkyDrive cloud storage. When you create a Microsoft
account to sign in to Windows, your account automatically includes your own
SkyDrive storage. To take advantage of that storage from within Ofﬁ ce, sign in to
Ofﬁ ce with your Microsoft account information, and click your SkyDrive in the
middle list shown in Figure 3.8. If you have installed the SkyDrive for Windows
client application in Windows, that process sets up SkyDrive folders on your system
that automatically sync with your SkyDrive storage in the cloud, so you can access
those ﬁ les from another computer or device if needed. Chapter 39 will show you
how to set up and use SkyDrive. You can jump ahead to that chapter if you want to
use SkyDrive in the near future.
