    In OneDrive, click the three dots to the right of the filename to bring up a menu.

    On that menu, click the three dots to bring up another menu.

    On that menu select "Download a Copy" and save it to your USB thumb|flash drive.

    Continue to do this for each document you want to save.

    Do you mean Onedrive, as in, in the cloud?

    After you have what you want downloaded to a computer, put in a USB stick and copy the files to the stick. Don't transfer because if something goes wrong, you lose the files.

    After you are done, safely remove the USB stick. Put the stick in another computer or the same computer and check if the files are on the stick and will open. If they do, you can safely remove the stick and delete the files you've downloaded on to the computer.

    Whatever "did work", I guess that's good news. (y)
