My Files is your place to access, edit, and store ALL of your files and folders located on your school network and cloud drives from any device.
When you click on My Files, it will open up in its own tab. You will see a tree view of your storage locations on the left. The ClassLink Drive is cloud storage given by ClassLink. The School Network storage location is where your school network drives will be found. You will be able to see all of your files and documents that you work on at school. You can view, edit and save these files, from ANY device, instantaneously! You have the ability to use an online editor (Office Online or Zoho) or a local application to see your files. Also, you have the ability to connect your cloud storage applications you already use such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Office365 and OneDrive.
When a file is clicked, it will open up in Office Online or Zoho automatically. If the file ends in an 'x' (docx, pptx, xlsx), it will use Office Online. Older files will still use the Zoho editor.
To get other My Files options you can right-click a file. Some of the options in this menu are to download the file, change the default click option, and choose to open the file on your device instead of editing online.
Open in Zoho

We have created a New ClassLink Agent (Windows PC only) to GREATLY improve the local editing experience! ClassLink Agent is a small applet that would be locally installed on your computer and it eliminates the need for Java. Local editing of files is lightning fast!
- ClassLink Agent stays in your task tray and you can click it to see status of current files and history of previous ones.
- ClassLink detects if Agent is installed and falls back to Java where it is not available.
- Provides notifications on upload/download completion.
- One click access to documents that fail to upload properly.
- Available for Windows PC
- Using the ClassLink Agent also means no more Java updates.
