How to Synchronize SharePoint with Windows 10 the easy way

Hi everyone, I found a simple way to synchronize SharePoint with Windows 10. Below are instructions.

First, log into your Office 365 account, in Internet Explorer and click the box “Keep me┬ásigned in” Reminder, this only will work if you do these instructions in Internet Explorer.

Once logged in, go to the upper left box and click on that, find “Sites” and then click on “team sites”.

In that window, you can find the directory you want to sync. Mine is “Documents”

Click on your folder you want to sync, then “library”

Now click on “Open with Explorer”. A window will pop up. In that window, right click on the Quick Access button and select “Pin current folder…”

Now that folder will act as a mapped drive and should stay put.

If you find you have issues, you might need to add the Sharepoint site to your trusted site in Internet Options.

I hope that helps! If you need help, please contact me below.

  1. I did this for my organization and it has worked well. I also have IE open up on startup to reconnect the drives. So far we haven’t had any disconnection issues. Not as simple as I would like it but it sure beats the hell out of OneDrive for Business!
