Enable "Open in explorer" in Google Chrome or Edge
Some features do not work in Internet Explorer but do work in Chrome or Edge but the "Open in explorer" only work in IE.
Please fully support IE11 or enable "Open in explorer" in Edge or Chrome. We need this feature for adoption.
Fully support at least on browser.
Thanks for the feedback. We are putting all our energy into making the OneDrive app with Files On Demand the best way to interact with all your SharePoint and OneDrive documents. The legacy Open in Explorer feature depends on some very particular interactions between IE and the Windows OS that can’t be generalized to other browsers, and in addition prevents us from integrating features like sharing links.
If there are scenarios that OneDrive and Files On Demand aren’t delivering for you, please open a specific UserVoice request for those.

I've also not seen documentation that states what will not work in IE vs a modern browser.
or even better: have the option to always open links in explorer once browser knows one has OneDrive installed locally!
Evernote has eg. this functionality which makes working with the desktop app great. Working with Sharepoint (links) is a pain in this regard.
Please renew the button to support Edge, Firefox and Chrome! Are there any plans to do this? A short feedback would be nice.
A Mac solution to open in a Finder Window would be nice too.
