Skydrive app for windows has been recently launched, with which you can now access files stored on skydrive server. You can now download all the files stored on skydrive to your computer using the skydrive app but you cant share the link to download files in folder or the file itself from windows.
Please Note that for sharing files or folder with a link or sharing the link to folder or file on skydrive via email can be done only from the online web interface. In order to do this you will need to go to skydrive.live.com
Sharing Link To Download Files, Folder On Skydrive
1. Go to skydrive.live.com
2. Once you are signed in with your live id credentials
3. Now select the folder, you want to share the link to download the same, you will see the options in the right sidebar as shown in the image below.
4. Click Share – you will see a prompt showing you ways to share a folder or file. You can now see the link in the section Get a link – you have two options to sharing a link to that folder – one link allows people to edit the file or folder on your skydrive which also means that they can delete the file or folder also and other is a view link which only gives them the right to download or view the folder or file you have on your skydrive account.
Third option allows you to make the file or folder public so that one can see and view the contents of folder or file which will again generate a link as well.
