Hi All

I am using exchange 2016 hybrid environment, we create users in onprem and migrate to online. i have a requirement from a user to access teams site from file explore rather then web url.

When user puts the above url in file explorer he is getting error Windows can't find check the spelling and try again.

i have created a GPO with the below settings but still user is facing issue.
User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Internet Explorer->
Internet Control Panel-Security Page-Site to Zone Assignment List value=2
* value=2

Do i need to add this value as well value=2 to GPO. please guide me

    @Glenn Maxwell We cannot directly use web address in file explorer to open a library of a SharePoint site.

    For the user's requirement, to open a SharePoint library in File Explorer, here are two ways for him/her:

    1. Map a network drive to the SharePoint Library
    2. Use "Sync" feature to sync the library to user's PC.

    We recommend using "Sync" button in SharePoint, instead of mapping a network drive to SharePoint, which is legacy technology and it may be affected by the deprecation of Internet Explorer in August 2021.
