Some time ago, I set up skydrive for my wife on her mac. But now she wants to access the files online, I cannot remember what Microsoft account I setup and linked her skydive app to and nor can I see anything in the skydrive app settings to tell me either?

How can I see the name of the Microsoft account the skydive app is currently linked to?

I would like to know this for skydrive app for Mac and PC

How many possible Microsoft Accounts do you have? You can easily figure out which account it by viewing the contents of the Skydrive for each of your Microsoft Accounts. – Ramhound Feb 25 '13 at 13:50

For the Windows 8 Skydrive Modern UI App, it will be sync'd to the MS account you are logged in as.

With the regular Windows desktop program Windows 8 and down), you can right click the SkyDrive tray icon, and choose "Manage Storage". This will take you to the Skydrive web UI (, and your account will by shown in the upper right of the web page.

Not sure about the OSX client.

The Problem is, its not Windows 8 and she is not logged in on the skydrive website so when you do that it still does not tell you what microsoft account is being synced to. Instead you are prompted to enter the name of the microsoft account – Gary Barrett Feb 25 '13 at 5:09
You asked for "PC" instructions as well, so I supplied them. If she was using Windows, and was logged into the Skydrive desktop program, it'd link back to the web automatically and show it. At least it does for me. :) – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Feb 25 '13 at 5:14

It only links back there if you are logged into the computer with the name attached to what you are looking at. I apparently set on one OneDrive on one computer that is different than the one on my Windows 8.1 laptop, and I cannot find out the address I used for it either. As I am on a Windows 7 desktop and when you go to manage storage you are taken to the website with the blank sign in information. However from my Windows 8.1 when logged in there it does take me back to the correct sign in name online.
