With iCloud for Windows, photos, documents and bookmarks on your PC are automatically updated on your Apple devices.

Before you can do anything, you need to install and configure iCloud for Windows. The good news is it’s a simple process. The best news is that we have a comprehensive step-by-step guide that takes you through the process:

How does iCloud work on Windows?

All you need to access iCloud on a Windows device is an Apple ID and password, which you should already have if you’ve ever owned an Apple product or used iTunes. There is a Windows iCloud application available exclusively for Windows 10, but those using Windows 7 or Windows 8 can still access iCloud on the web.

Enable iCloud Sync on Windows 10

If you didn’t take care of it first, the next step is to activate the iCloud drive in iCloud for Windows.

  • Open the Start menu and navigate to the iCloud folder.
  • From there, you need to open the iCloud application.
  • In the box that opens, check the box next to iCloud Drive.

That’s all you need to do to activate it.

Pin iCloud to Quick Access and Start Menu

Once activated, your iCloud Drive folder is a bit buried. You’ll find it under Users > Your User Folder, which is not very useful for getting there quickly. You can attach it to Pin to Quick Access and Start menu, the Start menu, or both.
