How To Fetch files from your Windows PC from anywhere

Forgot to put something in your SkyDrive folder? No problem! As long as your PC that has the file is on and running SkyDrive, you can access any file you need—from anywhere. Here's how:
  1. Make sure you leave the box checked during setup that will allow you to "Fetch your files from anywhere." (You can also choose this later by clicking the SkyDrive icon (SkyDrive icon) in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar, and clicking Settings. On the General tab, under Fetch files, select Make files on this PC available to me on my other devices, and then click OK.)
  2. Open your browser and sign in to SkyDrive.com.
  3. Your PCs that have SkyDrive for Windows installed will appear in the Computers menu. Choose the computer that has the file you want, and you can view, print, or download the file you forgot.
In fact, you can browse through files just like you would if you were sitting in front of that PC. Want to show someone a photo on that home PC? You can view photo slide shows and videos on that PC from any browser, from any computer.
