    OneDrive context menu in build 9879


    I'm missing context menu items for "Make available Offline" and "Online only" in the File explorer context menu in latest build. Are these really gone? It was a nice easy way of moving things off your hard disk.

  2. No OneDrive placeholders on WIn 10?

    Work Around Instructions

    This works great.. a work around...not perfect. but ok

    1 Sign-in to your OneDrive account in your web browser

    2 Click on Files

    3 From the address bar copy the CID ID. This is the part of the URL after
    “?cid=”. The URL looks something like this: OneDrive. In this case, I will copy the this part
    “d1sareageat38asde9ec6”.

    4 Open File Explorer and go to This
    PC


    5 From the ribbon menu, go to Computer, and then click
    Map
    Network
    Drive


    6 In the Folder field type the following address:

    You can map your OneDrive as a network drive. You will need your CID ID which I had to find in the source code of the page as it wasn't displayed in the browser (F12+Ctrl F "CID" or "vcid"). Its not perfect, but seems to be working. I found the steps

    OneDrive context menu in build 9879

    It's been changed with the new 9879 build.

    New build available to the Windows Insider Program

    Ahh thats a shame.

    It is a bit laborious going through OneDrive Tray Icon -> Settings -> "Choose Folders" -> "Chose Folders" -> "Choose Folders to Sync" and then opening up the tree.

    Then if you don't want to sync one file in a folder you can't - it is all the contents or none.

    I'll leave some feedback *Smile

  6. I've been reading here and there, and it seems the new OneDrive change is not getting rave reviews at all. Just the opposite.

    I have no problem with what they have, just don't see the reason to get rid of the OneDrive app.

    Actually I like it - it is clearer what is happening. Just having a context menu to choose a specific file would be more efficient and useful especially if it was big and you are running out of local disk space (which I always am).
