There are several types of SharePoint Libraries, but the most popular one is the Shared Documents Library. This is where you can upload, share, edit and download documents with others in your organization.
The easiest way to add documents is to just drag and drop a file (or several files at once) from your computer right into the document library.
Alternatively, you can click on the + new document link
Click on the Browse button and search for the file or picture you would like to upload
Select the file and select Open. Click OK to upload the file.
In Document libraries, it may be helpful to organize and store your content in a folder.
To store information by folder, first you must go to the Document Library and click on the Files tab on the top ribbon.
Click New Folder.
Create a name for the folder and click Save
You can then just drag other items into that folder
If you only need to download one or two files, you can click on the name of the document you want to open or download.
If you have any problems you can download by doing this:
NOTE: The only way you can download multiple files from SharePoint is by using "Open With Explorer" and it only works with Internet Explorer.
Sometimes when you download a Microsoft Office document you might get an additional login window. If this happens, enter your username and password again and check the "Sign me in automatically" checkbox in the lower left of the screen. This should save that information so you don't have to login the next time you download a document.
