Epson BrightLink: Accessing OneDrive

When using the Epson Brightlink projector, you will find that your files are not connected to the File Explorer. Since this is a shared classroom device, we do not advise connecting your OneDrive to this computer. This tutorial will walk you through accessing your OneDrive documents in a secure way.

It is recommended that you use Google Chrome when accessing OneDrive. The default settings of the BrightLink does not display Google Chrome on the taskbar or desktop. The application is already on the computer and you can access it by searching for it in the Start menu. 

Pin Google Chrome to the taskbar once you have accessed it. This will prevent you from having to repeat this process in the future when you log into the system.
