    on/in the system

    Hi,

    Let us assume that I am a teacher and I always upload files and documents on the computer. One of my students ask:

    - Could you please upload these files on/in the system?

    Should I use 'in' or 'on' in that sentence?

    Thanks.

    Re: on/in the system

    Not a teacher.

    I would prefer 'in'

    Note my corrections above in red.

    I would use "Could you please upload these files to the system?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Or "onto." Maybe even "into." Definitely a "to" involved.
