Yandex.Disk is a software application that provides users with a simple means of storing files and folders to a cloud and share them with your friends and colleagues, as well as take screenshots.

The interface you come across is quite minimal and non-obtrusive, seeing it goes in the system tray from the first launch. You can easily interact with the program through a pretty big context menu, while it is also possible to open the Yandex.Disk folder with just a click of the button, using File Explorer. In addition to that, a “Getting Started” wizard is available which makes sure that both power and novice users can easily find their way around it.

First and foremost, you should know that you can use up to 10GB of storage space, while it is also possible to get more, by inviting friends or buying it.

You can easily select a file or directory and get a public link, which enables you to share the uploaded items with ease, by simply sending your colleagues or friends the aforementioned URL. Moreover, you can set up the tool to sync items from your cloud with your disk or turn it off.

Aside from that, you should know that it is possible to take screenshots of a specific area, the full screen or a selected window, and get a link so that you can share it. A picture editor is available, which helps you add arrows, text and shapes to images, highlight items with a marker, blur images and crop them, so that you can be sure they meet all your standards.

From the settings panel, it is possible to change the location of the Yandex directory, view information about your account, select which folders to sync, and enable automatic uploading of photos and videos from connected devices. You can also customize the shortcut keyboard shortcuts and input a proxy server.

To wrap it up, Yandex.Disk is an efficient piece of software that can really come in handy to people that want to store items on a cloud and easily share them with others. The computer’s performance is not going to be hampered at all, the response time is good and the interface is intuitive.
