iCloud for Windows is an app that allows users to access their iCloud data and features from their Windows PC. The app is available for free download from Microsoft’s App Store and directly from Apple.

To use iCloud for Windows, users must have a PC running Windows 10 (the 64-bit May 2019 Update or later) or Windows 11.

Once installed, iCloud for Windows allows users to access files on iCloud Drive, Photos, Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Tasks (with Outlook), and Safari Bookmarks by logging in with their Apple ID. The app also includes a password manager, iCloud Keychain, which allows users to check their account information, update it, delete it, and add new accounts. These changes will automatically sync across all the user’s iCloud devices.

In addition to these features, iCloud for Windows also supports advanced imaging formats that may be useful for Apple-centric professionals. Since 2021, it has been able to handle Apple ProRes and ProRaw formats for video and photos.

One of the key features of iCloud for Windows is the integration with Microsoft’s OneDrive’s Files On-Demand feature. This allows items stored in iCloud Drive to appear in Windows File Explorer as if they were on the PC. It also enables direct integration between Windows 11 and iCloud Photos from within the Windows Photos app.

In conclusion, iCloud for Windows is a useful app for users who rely on multiple platforms and want to seamlessly access their iCloud data and features on their Windows PC. The app is easy to download and install and offers a variety of features such as file access, password management, and advanced imaging support.
