OneDrive for Business file path

Terry Chan 206 Reputation points

I go to OneDrive and navigate to the folder where the file is located. I copy the url and append the filename as url%2Ffile. But that will treat file as a folder but not the actual file. How can I get the full path for accessing the file?

    Hi @Terry Chan ,
    Did you need the file path in OneDrive for desktop?
    I suggest you click on the OneDrive icon and go to Help & Settings- Settings- Office to uncheck the "Use Office application to sync Office files that I open" option to check this issue.
