    OneDrive starts downloading all the files in current folder when I try to open a file from...


    I am using OneDrive (personal) with Placeholders enabled to save space in my storage. After I updated to Windows 10 May 2019 Update, 1903 (update showed up by itself), when I try to pick up any file from my OneDrive in many cases:

    1. When I want to upload files through any Chromuim-based browser;
    2. When I want to open a picture in Photoshop;
    3. When I need to open a file through any Electron-based apps (Skype/VK Messenger/Whatsapp)
    4. When I try to save a file through Snagit/Word/Unigram...

    It happens when I navigate to a folder containing some files. When I stay in the root, nothing is downloading despite there are icons clearly signaling some "synchronizing in progress".


    Some apps doesn't force OneDrive to download files, such as mp3tag from Microsoft Store.


    Info:

    • All the programs mentioned are running latest stable versions;
    • I tried to reset OneDrive. With no luck.

    1. Open your personal folder by clicking the Start button and then clicking your user name at the top of the Start menu's right pane.
    2. Double-click one of the following folders:
      • Downloads
      • Documents
      • Pictures
      • Videos
      • Music


    If you do not see the file you are looking for, but know its file name, you can search for it by following these steps:
    To search for a file you have downloaded...

    1. Click the Start button
    2. Type all or part of the file name into the Search box.
      The file you are looking for will appear in the list of results.

    Search opens local files in OneDrive folder only in browser

    Hi Elias,

    To resolve your concern regarding opening local files on OneDrive, follow the steps below:

    • Go to
      OneDrive.com.
    • Right click on the file that you want to view.
    • Click on Download.
    • The file will be downloaded, and would normally show up on the bottom part of your browser.
    • Click the file, and it would open up using its normal default application.

    Let us know how it goes.
