Microsoft Edge - not View in File Explorer option

Good morning, next 15th of June Internet explorer will close, I have been some answers about this topic.

I have a network location against one Sharepoint and some times when I try connect through File explorer I receive an error "You cannot connect".

But if I press click from Internet Explorer on "View File Explorer" it works, but in Microsoft Edge this function is not active, I know the "sync" option, but it is not the solution, because I need access to all sharerpoint (documents libraries, Videos, Images, .....) and it has 250Gb and I don't have enough quota en mi computer.
-Are there any way to fix it ?
-Is it possible to include in Edge this function like IE ?
-How could I active the connection from file explorer to Sharerpoint ?

Thanks in advance

Hi @DeLeonFrancisco-3276 ,

By default, the View in File Explorer menu option will not be visible to you or users in the SharePoint modern document library interface. But you can enable this option by configuring the corresponding group policy.

Follow the steps below to use View in File Explorer in Microsoft Edge:

  1. Verify that devices are on Microsoft Edge build 93 or later using Find out which version of Microsoft Edge you have.

  2. Enable the ConfigureViewInFileExplorer policy for Microsoft Edge that allows URLs with the viewinfileexplorer: scheme to open WebDAV URLs in Windows File Explorer.

  3. Ensure that Window instances are joined to a Microsoft Active Directory domain, Windows 10 Pro, or Enterprise instances that are enrolled for device management.

  4. Use the options below to enable View in File Explorer using group policy or Intune.

  5. Verify the policy has been enabled by opening Microsoft Edge and navigating to Edge://policy/.

For more details, please refer to this doc: View SharePoint files with File Explorer in Microsoft Edge, it contains detailed steps and examples.
