This article is based on the Storage tool of Microsoft Azure. In previous articles of the series, we learned all about storage in Microsoft Azure. The Azure Storage tool is one kind of place where you can manage all your Microsoft Azure Storage in a new fashion. You can manage all your storage, even blobs, or files, or tables, or queues in a very fast and easily manner as such as your files. You can directly copy, paste and delete files within the Azure Storage Explorer.
Open the setup of Azure Explorer, and accept the agreement before installation of it.
The setup will take a default folder in to your system.
Click on to Next to finish the setup.
The Azure Storage Explorer has successfully installed, open it and you’ll find that you are connected with your default subscription. You need one storage account on Azure Portal to connect with it. So just go to Azure Portal and create a storage account.
Now right click on to storage account to add an account from portal.
A Storage Account has its name and primary and secondary key which is used for accessing a storage account from outside the portal. I’m going to use a storage account name and key to connect with Storage account.
Here you need to copy your Storage Account name and Account Key from the Azure portal.
You can get your name and key from the Azure Portal by clicking on to Access keys.
The keys really help in to connect with outside of the portal where you want to access storage account.
Copy your Storage Account name and Keys from here and paste it on Azure Storage Explorer.
After clicking on the next button, you’ll be connected with your Storage Account, now you can perform all operations in one place.
In fthe ollowing screenshot you can see your storage account is connected with Azure Explorer.
Under Blob Container, I have a Container which is a set of blobs. Under Container I have three files. Right click on to any file where you can see the properties of any file.
If you want to access blobs to the browser or you want to download, you have to change permission of the container make either the blob or container not private.
If you’re going to download any file then the file will be saved in Temp folder.
Copy the path of any file and paste it on directly browser’s url. You will get your expected result on the browser.
You can access other storages by the Azure Storage Explorer as well.
I hope you enjoyed this series. Thank you
