    Cannot Remove File From File Explorers Recent Files List

    I'm using Windows 10 and have always been able to remove files from the file explorer's recent files list. The file is listed as FileProvider and it is located in the ThisPC/downloads directory. Any other file is readily deleted from the list by the usual
    procedure. This file is not. Any suggestions?

    THANKS

    This article details why SMART files, also known as placeholder files, were removed from OneDrive in Windows 10.

    Details

    OneDrive has gone through many changes in Windows 10, most notably the removal of SMART files (placeholder files) from OneDrive. They still exist in Windows 8.1, however they were removed, hopefully temporarily, from OneDrive in Windows 10 because of the
    fragmented sync engines between OneDrive on Windows 7/Mac, OneDrive on Windows 8.1, and OneDrive for Business. The following article details what changes the OneDrive team made and why they made them:

    From a development point of view, it's a much better approach to consolidate their codebase, but from a user point of view, it's very frustrating.

    Like many of us, if you want that feature back, please vote for it here on the OneDrive UserVoice page:

    Since you cannot choose which files are Available Online-only and Available Offline, you can choose the folders you want to sync. Review these two pages:
