I have used Windows 10 for 2 days.  I used Windows 8.1 for a couple of years, and I always saved new work in the OneDrive folder (in sub-folders) because I like the idea of having an automatic backup.  But now I think that I am not also automatically saving the files onto my computer.  There are a lot of document files in the OneDrive folder that I can't find anywhere else on the computer.  I right clicked the OneDrive app using the OneDrive icon on the task bar, then clicked Settings and the Folders tab and finally Use Folders. All of the folders are checked.  So I'm stumped.  The questions are where should I save new work and how do I make sure it is automatically saved on the computer and on the OneDrive system?  Thanks.

Hi McGyver_ :)

Everything you save in the OneDrive folder (and its subfolders) will automatically by saved locally on your system as well. The only different between the OneDrive folder and the other normal folders, is that anything you save there will be uploaded to your OneDrive account in the cloud. So basically, just keep on doing what you're currently doing and you'll be fine.

If you right click on a file in the onedrive folder and go to the details tab, towards the bottom it will show you wether its available or not. From my understanding Windows 10 does not let you view thumbnails of things that are online only like windows 8.1 did. So if you can see it in the folder, it should be on your computer.
