Hololens 2 FileOpenPicker: no access to Documents folder

Ron van den Ouweland 1 Reputation point

We're developing a B2B Hololens 2 application (in Unity, with MRTK).

As data input for our app we load in *.csv files which contain configuration settings, these are different every time the app is used.
We're able to use FileOpenPicker to bring up the Hololens File Explorer in the app to select the *.csv file we need.

However, when the file is in the Documents or Downloads folder access to read them is denied - but when we put them in the Pictures folder (and declare access through the Appxmanifest > Capabilities > Pictures Library) we can read and write the files just fine.

Is there a way to allow access to the Documents and/or Downloads folder as well?
