    • Three dot icon or More (next to the refresh icon) shows the storage space on OneDrive (free and filled), free storage options, and so on.
    • To share files, use the button Plus (in blue) which is at the bottom. You can add files by searching for them on your computer or you can also use the drag and drop feature on the panel. Meanwhile, to send a note or message, click on the text field and write the note you want.
    • If you want to send a file or note, you can simply press Enter or click the “paper plane” icon at the bottom

3. Receive Files and Notes Sent Via Drop

Once the file is successfully uploaded and shared from your device, you can easily download the file to other devices. For that, you can follow the steps that WinPoin has prepared below:

  • Open Microsoft Edge browser
  • After that log in using the same Microsoft account
  • Follow how to activate the Drop feature that WinPoin shared above
  • Click the Drop icon on the toolbar
  • You will see all the files and notes shared by you from the main device.
  • Each file will be sorted by delivery time and you are also provided with the Download option. Use that option and then the Drop feature will download the files to your device.

*As additional information: This feature is enabled by default in the Edge browser on the phone. To access the Edge Drop feature, you simply open the Edge browser on your phone then tap the three dots or more icon at the bottom, and select “Drop”.
