Storing a presentation in the cloud, that is, in a Web-based location, has great advantages:
In this article, I’ll show you how to use the free Microsoft Office Web Apps/SkyDrive to store and share your presentations in the cloud.
Windows Live Sky Drive offers 25GB (that’s right, gigabytes!) of free online storage. You can use this storage for just about anything, not just presentations.
Tip: To share a large file that’s too big to e-mail, upload it to SkyDrive, get the URL and e-mail it to the recipient. That person can then click the URL to download the file.
How to get your presentation in the cloud
To start, go to http://office.live.com.
If you don’t have an account, click Sign Up. If you do, use the Sign In section. (When you hover over that section, a password box opens.)
When you sign in, you’ll see a list of your folders and files.
You can use the section at the top to create a new file, create a new folder, or add a file (upload).
