Windows Live documents

I upload a file to "windows live my documents" folder each day. This file is then retrieved by others. The file has updated information daily but is always the same name. Is there anyway that I can do this automatically or do I have to manually do this daily.

Bob,
That's exactly what I'd like to do. I am on XP Pro SP3. When I tried to follow method 2 I get the following

A window appears that asks me to log into SkyDrive Simple Viewer. When I enter my info I get the following error, "SkyDrive Simple Viewer has encountered a problem and needs to close" Dialog box

Thanks in advance for your help,

Bud

The script

Would be complicated since a login would be needed for it to work. However if I have skydrive showing in explorer, the one line script of COPY this.doc (skydrive drive letter):\where\this.doc is all that is needed.

As they change skydrive it's possible the methods needed to automate copies changes but you can make life easier with a script. Maybe you can't automate it completely but the copy command should be fine in a script.
Bob

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
