    OneDrive context menu in build 9879


    I'm missing context menu items for "Make available Offline" and "Online only" in the File explorer context menu in latest build. Are these really gone? It was a nice easy way of moving things off your hard disk.

    It's been changed with the new 9879 build.

    New build available to the Windows Insider Program

    New ways to use OneDrive:

    We’re also introducing changes to how OneDrive syncs your files in this build. In Windows 8.1, we use placeholders on your PC to represent files you have stored in OneDrive. People had to learn the difference between what files were “available online” (placeholders) versus what was “available offline” and physically on your PC. We heard a lot of feedback around this behavior. For example, people would expect that any files they see in File Explorer would be available offline by default. Then they would hop onto a flight (or go someplace without connectivity) and try to access a file they thought was on their PC and it wasn’t available because it was just a placeholder. It didn’t feel like sync was as reliable as it needed to be. For Windows 10, having OneDrive provide fast and reliable sync of your files is important. Starting with this build, OneDrive will use selective sync. This means you choose what you want synced to your PC and it will be. What you see is really there and you don’t need to worry about downloading it. You can choose to have all of your OneDrive files synced to your PC, or just the ones you select.



    Also in Windows 8.1, there were multiple ways you could get to your OneDrive files such as through the modern OneDrive app or through File Explorer. We heard a lot of feedback around this as well. It wasn’t obvious exactly where to go for your OneDrive files. In Windows 10, we are providing people with one easy way to get to their OneDrive files – through File Explorer. To manage OneDrive, just right-click on the OneDrive icon in the notification area and click “Settings” to manage how OneDrive behaves. You’ll be able to adjust things like auto save, choose which folders are synced offline, and more.

    If you have any feedback around these new OneDrive changes in this build – please let us know! Use the Windows Feedback app to let us know what you like or don’t like about the new design.

    Ahh thats a shame.

    It is a bit laborious going through OneDrive Tray Icon -> Settings -> "Choose Folders" -> "Chose Folders" -> "Choose Folders to Sync" and then opening up the tree.

    Then if you don't want to sync one file in a folder you can't - it is all the contents or none.

    I've been reading here and there, and it seems the new OneDrive change is not getting rave reviews at all. Just the opposite.

    I have no problem with what they have, just don't see the reason to get rid of the OneDrive app.

    Actually I like it - it is clearer what is happening. Just having a context menu to choose a specific file would be more efficient and useful especially if it was big and you are running out of local disk space (which I always am).
