    OneDrive is already an App on my Surface and I have also installed it on my Windows 7 PC.

    Files I upload on my Surface appear on the OneDrive menu on my PC but I am then unable to amend these on the PC (the amendments don't show when the item is opened on the Surface). In the same way, when I drag a file (e.g. a docx) from the PC Explorerer Window to copy it to OneDrive, it will show in the PC OneDrive menu but there is no mention of it in OneDrive on the Surface.

    I really want to be able to work on the documents whether I am using the Surface or the PC and need these files and the amendments to be seen on both machines. I assume this is possible but don't know what I am doing wrong. Any help will be appreciated.

    Works well for me. Edit a document on any of my devices, and it ends up on the others to be viewed or edited.

    In you OneDrive settings, do you have it set to 'all files available offline'?
    If you create or edit a file on OneDrive ONLINE, does it show up automatically on any of your devices as it should?

    Thank you Wayne. Whether I choose On or Offline the result remains as I described in my previous post.
