OneDrive issue



We operate a small company with 3 members of staff, 1 of whom works remotely as we all do from time to time.


Office365 is purchased through GoDaddy.  


We want to move to working on the OneDrive (all files are currently stored on a main pc in the office) so that we all have access.


I access the OneDrive from my laptop away from the office by clicking on the cloud icon – 1 click.

I access the OneDrive at the office through logging into GoDaddy and then Office365 – many clicks and passwords:

> Copy files to OneDrive folder on the pc
> Sign into GoDaddy
> Name
> Sign into Office365
> Home
> Office365
> Sign into OneDrive
> Sync


Is it possible to create a link from my pc to the OneDrive so that I can access and, importantly, work in OneDrive more easily (the less clicks the better)?

    Note: You cannot add non-OneDrive folders (such as C: and D:).

If you uncheck a folder you are syncing to your computer, the folder will be removed from your computer. The folder and its contents will still be available online. The sync settings you choose are unique to each computer unless you're syncing everything everywhere. Also, if you're choosing folders on two computers and you create a new folder on computer A that you want to sync to computer B, you'll need to go to computer B and select the new folder there.
