    How to sync recent files in File Explorer on i.e home network


    Hi,

    I am wondering if there is any way to sync my recently opened files in Windows 10 File Explorer across multiple PC's running Windows 10 in i.e home network or other methods. Any feedback and ideas is very much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    What I would like to do is have my recently opened files (the ones you see if you open explorer (or Win+E)) under "Recent files" to sync on my other computers. This would be helpful to continue where you left off, for instance watching a TV show or continue with other work. I'm guessing this will be problematic, due to the files might not exist on all PC's.

    Any ideas anyone?
