View in File explorer
The option to View in File Explorer (modern view) and Open with Explorer (classic view) stopped working for our O365 SharePoint document libraries recently. When in modern view if we select the option to View in File Explorer from the list of available library views we see the library return to classic mode but File Explorer never launches. If we attempt to use the Open with Explorer option from Classic mode ( Ribbon> Library Tab> Connect & Export section ) we also see that file explorer never launches. This was working fine for many of our users as of mid December. We are using IE 11 as a browser. Has anyone else seen this issue recently?

Boom it;s done? Not really. It is only visible in IE not in Edge.
Can it be added to Edge as well?
If you prefer working with files via File Explorer then take a look at Zee Drive http://www.thinkscape.com/Map-Network-Drives-To-Office-365-OneDrive/ you can map network drives to your OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online team sites in File Explorer

See the Open in Explorer request.
While a different way to access it, it would appear that MS are happy to maintain the Explorer View, which in my view is mandatory!

I have the same issue.

The Windows Explorer access option in SharePoint has been getting worse with hit or miss access for months now. Could you guys please stabilize this?
