If you need to create a new file from scratch, you can do it right from within OneDrive for Business.

  1. Click the New button.
  2. Select a file type.
    Create a New File

    A new file appears and is ready to populate.

  3. Add content to the new file.
  4. Click the Name in the title bar.
    Create a New File
  5. Type a file name.

    The changes you make in any of the online Office apps are automatically saved.

  6. Close the file.
    Create a New File

The new file is added to the library, and you know it's new because of the little green icon next to the name.
