Microsoft Live Mesh

What is Windows Live Mesh?

In Windows Live Mesh 2011, you can:

  • Keep your documents, photos, and other files up to date on all your computers, whether PC or Mac.* When you sync a folder, your latest files are right at hand even if you’re working offline at the moment. You can also sync folders on SkyDrive synced storage, so you can go to the Windows Live Devices website to access them on the web from any computer. To get started, see How do I sync a folder?
  • Connect to your computers remotely. Leave your PC online and run its programs or get to all its files from another computer. This is handy for “emergencies” when you might be at work and need a file from home. For more information about remote connections, see What are remote connections?
  • Sync your program settings between computers. Keep your Internet Explorer favorites and Microsoft Office settings up to date on all your PCs. For more information and to get started, see How do I sync program settings between computers?

F8 Notes: When installing this package, Microsoft will steer you towards downloading a whole bunch of Microsoft Live packages, you can just install Mesh if you persist and save yourself a load of bloatware.
