Upload PowerPoint Presentations To Live Skydrive

In PowerPoint 2010 you can upload presentations directly to the cloud using the Save to the Web feature. This will retrieve locations and SkyDrive is one of these possible remote locations where to save files. SkyDrive is a cloud storage solution offered for free from Microsoft and competes directly with Dropbox, Google Drive and Box.net

Once you upload your presentation to SkyDrive, you can access it from the new Metro interface on Outlook.com or from SkyDrive location.

Then you can open your presentations online or share the presentation with your colleagues in the same way you did with other web based solutions like Zoho or Google Docs.

In this tutorial we will try to upload a multi layered wheel diagram designed in PowerPoint to the cloud, using MS PowerPoint 2010.
