Is possible to Map a Azure Storage Blob to a Win 10 laptop?

Schumacher, Craig 51 Reputation points

We have and existing Azure Storage blob container that contains files and folders. We would like to access this container directly through a Windows 10 machine and file explore. What would be the best way to accomplish this. I have only seen way to map a Azure shared folder but not a container. Can a existing container be turned into a shared folder?
