Online File Search

The File Explorer is now also searching for files on One Drive with the recent Windows 10 upgrade. For example, if you search under the Quick Access menu for a file called “Mockups,” Windows will show you suggestions from One Drive as well. If you are using One Drive to backup and sync files on Windows, it’s a large added bonus.
