add account

Copper Contributor

I have a onedrive personal account. I want to ADD a work and school account. I have tried to follow the online instructions. I have had others attempt to read and follow the instructions and we are not able to follow them as the instructions are misleading and unhelpful.

Can someone please reach out to me!

I have tried EVERYTHING to get ahold of a live person.

This is a bit silly.

May I please get some help.

As of my last knowledge, it was not possible to merge or add a work or school account to a personal OneDrive account directly. Personal and work/school OneDrive accounts are typically separate entities managed by different organizations (personal by individuals and work/school by organizations).

However, you can access both personal and work/school OneDrive accounts from the same computer by signing in and out of each account separately in the OneDrive app or OneDrive for Business app. Here is how:

For Windows:

  1. Install the OneDrive app for your personal account if you have not already.
  2. Sign in with your personal Microsoft account.
  3. To access your work or school OneDrive account, you'll need to use OneDrive for Business:
    • Install and open OneDrive for Business.
    • Sign in with your work or school email address and credentials.

You can use both applications to sync and manage files from your personal and work/school accounts, but they will remain separate.

For Mac:

  1. On macOS, you can use the OneDrive app to access both personal and work/school accounts. Install the app if you haven't already.
  2. Sign in with your personal Microsoft account.
  3. To access your work or school OneDrive account within the same app:
    • Click on the OneDrive cloud icon in the Mac menu bar.
    • Choose "Open Microsoft OneDrive."
    • Sign in with your work or school email address and credentials.

Again, you can use the OneDrive app to manage files from both accounts, but they will not be merged into a single account.
