Cloud Storage

Yes and No, depends upon what you mean by being opened on multiple computers. Cloud storage allows you to store your files in a common repository so other devices can access the files, it's not really any different than having a shared network drive. Any device connected to the cloud storage can access the file, when doing so a copy of the cloud stored file is downloaded to your computer, you work on it and then when finished your newer version will be uploaded to the cloud and replace the former one if the file name has not been changed, if the file name has been changed then former one remains and another new file is stored. What you can't do is work on the same file at the same time on two different devices, it does not make a single-user program multi-user.

 

The most common cloud solutions are OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive. Just follow their setup instructions, usually only takes a few minutes.

Just make sure that the Online "Service" you use is not the only copy you have of anything, always keep local copies of everything too, as many "Free" Cloud Services do not have Versioning in the Free Unpaid Plans , so if something gets corrupted or disappears into the Ether , it is gone....
