    What does this grey "sync" icon on the Downloads Folder mean?


    Hi,

    Some folders on my computer, including the default Downloads folder has this small grey "sync" mark on their icons.
    Click image for larger version.

    Do you have Share Experiences turned on? What version of Win 10 are you using? Are you using Onedrive? If you sync anything inside the folder it may show.

    I do not know if Share Experiences are turned on... How can I tell.

    I'm using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit

    I am using OneDrive, yes, but it is not set to sync those folders. And it is up and running.
