19 Windows Live SkyDrive By default, My Documents and any new folders you create are private folders. They are shared with: Just me To share a folder, click the Share drop- down menu, then click Edit permissions. Note: Folder permissions are configured at the top folder. All files/subfolders are governed by the permission settings of the top folder. Thus, if a folder is shared, everything in that folder is also shared.
20 Windows Live SkyDrive The Edit permissions page includes the following options for sharing a folder: Me: Folder is private. Friends (3 levels): Folder is visible to Windows Live Network friends. Everyone: Folder is public (view only). Additional people: Folder is visible to specific people. Note: In Outlook Live/SkyDrive environments, you will likely not use the Friends options. Private, public, and specific people are the preferred settings.
21 Windows Live SkyDrive Drag the permissions slider up to Everyone (public). To prevent editing, make sure all dropdowns are set to Can view files. Click Save. Note: Public folders are visible by anyone on the Internet who has a link to the folder.

22 Windows Live SkyDrive Drag the permissions slider down to Me. Under Add additional people, type the e-mail address of the individuals you want to give access to the folder. Note: Keep Outlook Live open in another browser tab for quick access to your Outlook Live contacts. Because Outlook Live is managed by the IT department within your school, Outlook Live and Windows Live contacts are not connected. As you add people, their names or e- mail addresses will appear below the name field. Use the dropdown menus to determine whether they have viewing rights or editing rights. When you’re finished adding people, click Save.
