    OneDrive mobile app file appears in "recent" but when opened from original location it is...


    Hello,


    I'm having trouble finding recent versions of files on OneDrive in their designated locations. Within my OneDrive folder there is only one copy of the file, it is up to date on a PC, I can see it in the "recent" on the bottom of the mobile app, but the original folders still have old versions of the files. I've reinstalled the app, logged out then back in, still not working properly.


    Thanks for any help. It's not a super pressing issue since I can still see the updated files in "recent."


    Jay

    Open file location is missing in pinned apps

    Yes. This is the one. Weirdly it now shows all the recent files after update. Maybe that has something to do with it. I did not do anything at all.

    Thank you again. I guess the problem is solved.

    ,
    No, that's not the sort of 'file location' the OP is referring to. Your 'file location' opens File Explorer at the location of the shortcut for that app in the Start Menu's Programs folder. The OP wants the list of recently opened files, or the Jump List as it is known (hover over each one and it shows its file location). Theirs is turned off (and yours by the looks of it).

    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings to OneDrive

    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings

    I am trying to save my files to OneDrive as a default. It has always worked as my default. For some reason, the default save location is now Recent. Something caused it to change. All default locations settings in Word Options, my computer and OneDrive settings are set to save to OneDrive. It appears my computer does not recognize these default settings.

    Do you have any suggestions how I can have my default locations for files change back to OneDrive?

    I use Windows 10. My computer is Dell XPS 8910.

    See Screenshots. Screenshot with Recent highlighted shows my current default location as Recent. OneDrive should be highlighted.

    Also, I reinstalled Microsoft Office.
