I went into a link of someone who shared his file on OneDrive and I saw my username and all at the top corner. Does it give him my username when I download his file?

It shouldn't, only that the names that came up are due to the fact that you're logged into OneDrive. If the privileges are set that way, anyone can download a file without asking for permission. If permission needs to be sought, then the uploader will be notified of the user trying to download the file/content.

Alright, no permission was required to download, so I'm assuming it didn't notify the user. Thank you! :)
