    Office files not opening in onedrive


    Hi, my new surface 3 laptop was delievered today. I am connected to the onedrive and can open documents online, but cannot open any MS docs from the windows explorer. I have tried disconnecting/reconnecting with onedrive and restarting, but that doesn't work. Can you please advise?

    :)

  2. Microsoft office files doesn't open in OneDrive and won't sync in Windows 10.

    Hi CauZion,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to Delete cached files from Upload Center.

    • Go to start menu and open Upload Center for Office.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on 'Delete Cached Files for Office.'
    • Click OK and check if the status.
    I suggest you Change the OneDrive Location in Windows 10 and check if it works.

    To change the OneDrive folder location in Windows 10, you have unlink OneDrive from your account and then repeat the setup process:

    • Right-click on the OneDrive
      icon in the notification area and then select Settings
    • Select "Settings" and then select "Unlink OneDrive"
    • Follow the setup process again and ensure to select the new drive or location to have OneDrive sync to; you must wait for your files to download again to the new location
    Please note: if you've connected your Windows 10 user account with your Microsoft account, OneDrive won't let you unlink the application. You'll have to unlink your
    Microsoft account from your Windows account first.

    Hope it helps. Please reply to us with the status of the issue.

    Thanks.

    Microsoft office files doesn't open in OneDrive and won't sync in Windows 10.

    Original Title: HELP !!

    TWO weird issues I believe are connected to the same problem.

    FIRST

    1) A specific folder is selected on Folders List to sync, but Office 2013 files created before two or three weeks ago aren't been syching. I've deselected, reselected, but
    only PDF files are been synching to this folder on my local disc.

    2) Have reset Onedrive and the files were not synched again

    3) They are on my Onedrive online, but Onedrive doesn't download them to my PC (the Office Files created BEFORE two or three weeks ago are there (local), BUT.... (look to the second list below)

    4) Onedrive icon says it is updated, but office 2013 files aren't there

    5) NOW, after I've reset Onedrive, NO OFFICE FILES are been downloaded on ALL FOLDERS and not just the new ones.

    Only PDF files, images, but NO Office Document

    SECOND

    1) Weird also is that, if I go to WORD, in the recent opened files, there are some files I was working on a few days ago, I click on any of them and they are loaded. I click on SAVE, check the file folder path on onedrive, but they ARE NOT THERE !!!! Even
    after I save them on Word, I look at the local Onedrive file and they are not there.

    If I try to open thru the file dialog window on Word and go to the onedrive folder, there is NO word file there, but I can still open using recent documents list on word.

    I'm getting desperate because I can't access my Office files on onedrive using local folders

    Thanks for the tip! I followed all above steps.

    So far I can open files from the Recent files list when I enter Word itself, however I still am unable to open any documents using the Word icon pinned to the taskbar:
