    What is OneDrive

    I have just received an email with an attachment.When I click to open the link it gives me 2 options
    open or save.Both options send it to a folder called OneDrive,but I am unable to open it from there.
    I am using Outlook for email and Firefox.What am I missing?

    OneDrive is Microsoft's Cloud storage, only available to you if you have a Microsoft account. There should be an option to 'Save as' that would let you save it elsewhere.

    I have an MS account, but you don't have to logon with it to use OneDrive. I logon to the computer with a local account.

    Yes but the first time you go in to Onedrive you have to setup you MS account to connect. You don't need a MS acccount to login to Windows (u can use local account). You can use Onedrive if logged in Windows with a local account but have to use the MS account to access it the first time.
