    Photo app: show cloud-only content with onedrive for business (work or school accounts)


    Hello,


    short question:

    Is there a way to set photo to display cloud-only content when the content is on OneDrive for business.


    longer explanation of the question:

    I had to switch between my office365 home subscription to office 365 for business.

    As a result, I had to move my OneDrive content to the OneDrive for business, and I added my .onmicrosoft account.

    Now, in my OneDrive for business account, there is the picture folder, and it is great that OneDrive for my iOS phone is able to keep uploading my picture there seamlessly.
    However, windows photo app, which I love in every aspect, is in this case in an empasse.

    If I login with my regular Microsoft account, I can select to show cloud-only content, but it won't find any, since that folder has been moved to the OneDrive for business.

    If I login the photo app with my .onmicrosoft account, that option to show cloud-only content is no longer presented.


    Thank you to anyone who can point me to the right direction.

    Cheers,

    /Flavio

    :)

    The Photos app automatically displays the photos and videos in the Pictures folder on your PC and OneDrive by default.

    If you Microsoft account, the Photos app will show your cloud-only content from OneDrive by default.

    What does 'Show my Cloud-only content from OneDrive' setting do?

    In the Photos App Settings there is an item listed as 'Show my Cloud-only content from OneDrive'.

    What does that setting do?

    If I turn it on (or off) what changes in the app?

    My Photos App Settings for Sources already includes users\randy\Onedrive\Pictures.

    Doesn't that already provide access to all my OneDrive photos?

    Thanks!
