    OneDrive Explorer green checkmarks missing

    The green check mark overlay icons for OneDrive Explorer folders are missing. Below, how they should look...

    OneDrive has been uninstalled and reinstalled. The PC has been rebooted. Sync is working fine.

    There are no folders for OneDrive (or any other app) listed under this registry key...

    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdent ifiers
    (On another PC there are seven OneDrive folders shown under that key, and two additional folders.)

    How can the overlay check marks be restored?

    They show when the offline folder syncs with the cloud folder.

    Yup, that's the theory, but not the reality. Sync is working, just not the green check mark overlays. Thanks.

Hi, Does anyone know if one can remove the green check marks in file explorer that indicate that a file is synced on OneDrive? If one is using list, details or small icon view, there is no way to visually see the file type. Thanks, Paul
