Unable to open OneDrive PDF files from PC folder (not OneDrive Web)

Jason 20 Reputation points

I am having trouble opening PDF files that are saved in my OneDrive PC folder. When I try to open them, they do not open, but I am able to open them if I copy the files or folder to my desktop. What could be causing this issue?

A Microsoft file hosting and synchronization service.

    Hi @Jason

    Are there any error messages when you cannot open PDF files?

    • If you use Adobe Reader DC to open PDF files, please go to "Preferences", uncheck the "Enable Protected Mode at Startup" box for a check.

    Is the OneDrive PC folder a local OneDrive sync folder or a mapped network drive folder?
