In OneDrive on the web, the Shared view shows files and folders that you have shared and that others have shared with you. After you share a file, it automatically appears under Shared in the navigation.

Notes: 

  • Items that other people share with you are based on their OneDrive, so viewing and working with shared items is slightly different than viewing and working with other files on your OneDrive.

  • The Shared view in OneDrive shows all your files and folders that aren't private.

  1. To view a list of shared files in your OneDrive, go to onedrive.com and sign in

  2. Select Shared in the navigation to see a list of all files shared by you, and files shared with you, showing the name of who shared it.
