Embed a document in a blog or web page
It's easy enough to share a document, a picture, or a whole folder from OneDrive. The commands are all at the top of the browser window when you navigate to that object.
For pictures and folders, there's also an embed option, which allows you to insert a link into a blog or web page. But how do you do that with a Word Online file or a PDF document?
The simple trick: don't open the document. Instead, find the document entry in its folder and select it by right-clicking. When you do that, you'll see an Embed option on the right-click menu and at the top of the web page. Choose that option and follow the instructions to generate HTML code that you can paste in your blog or web page.
Create an online survey
When you sign in to OneDrive in a web browser, you'll see a Create button at the top of the page. Clicking that button leads to a drop-down menu that allows you to create an online Word document, Excel spreadsheet, PowerPoint presentation, OneNote notebook, or text file.
But there's another option as well. Click the Excel Survey option to create a special Excel spreadsheet and build a multi-question survey on the fly. After you're done, you can share a link to that survey that other people can fill in using any web browser. They enter the data, but only you can see the results.
Share a full-resolution image
If you open a picture in OneDrive, you see an info pane on the right, with a command bar at the top and an optional caption at the bottom. Click the Share command at the top and you get a link you can send to other people who see this same view.
But what if you just want to share the picture, without all that other stuff? After you create the sharing link to make the picture (or an entire folder) visible to others, click View Original. That opens the picture in the browser at full resolution. Copy the link from the address bar and use that link for sharing.
