I am running Yosemite on an iMac and want to get going with iCloud.

 

I can go to system preferences and click on iCloud and it comes up with my name and Apple ID. So I am sort of registered.

 

My question is how do I go about getting files, photos, etc. uploaded to iCloud? It looks like  just having some of the boxes checked does not do it.

 

Thanks,

Bart

Thanks, Buddyme

 

When I go to System Prefs on my iMac and click on iCloud I get  "Setting up iCloud drive..." with the endless spinning wheel that does not stop

 

When I go to iCloud.com and log in wth my Apple ID I get a message saying to go to your iOS device (I have none) and tap iCloud Drive and follow the instructions for setup

What I think about iWork is, it’s a supporting app and might be available in App Store. You can search in Search bar also for this app. If your concern is about iCloud then try the above mentioned steps easily and enjoy. Don't download other apps dear.

All depends on what you want to get "going on" in iCloud. iCloud does many things.

There is email.
There is calendar, contact, reminders, note, Safari bookmark, and keychain (aka password) syncing.
There are PhotoStreams (i.e. sharing photos with others and/or your other PhotoStream enabled devices...generally Apple devices, but also Windows running the iCloud Control Panel).
There is document/file syncing and "cloud storage".
There is Find My Mac.
There is Back to Mac (i.e. the ability to log into your Mac remotely from another Mac).

In all, it depends on what you want to do.
