    It opens in Adobe if you're using file explorer, hence my recent comment on: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/33196501-view-in-file-explorer-for-edge

    So many good reasons to get it working!

    Someone responded to the idea linked with 'If there are scenarios that OneDrive and Files On Demand aren’t delivering for you, please open a specific UserVoice request for those.'

    Well here are some issues I identified when we were first moved to Sharepoint. It was a side by side comparison of Teams and file explorer. I haven't been able to paste it as a table as I wanted but hopefully you can still read it. It doesn't cover the sync option but that's horrendous + see original post.

    Have you tried this?

    Adding our Sharepoint folders to your quick access in file explorer

    Open internet explorer (not Edge or any alternative browser)

    Go to office.com and sign in

    Go to Sharepoint and click on a team

    In the top right of your IE window click on the cog

    See all documents

    Go to internet options, security tab

    Click on trusted sites, sites, add this website, OK

    Click on the all documents drop down

    View in file explorer

    Allow pop ups and may need to repeat

    Once in file explorer*, right click on quick access (blue star) to add current location

    Repeat for any other Teams you’re in*

    *But the main location (where you view the top tier of folders which are also your channels in Teams) are all called ‘Shared Documents’. Pin folders other than ‘Shared Documents’ with more distinct names.

    This is another thing that currently works in file explorer but is threatened by Internet Explorer being pulled in August 2021. Please upvote:

    Given that IE / Internet Explorer is due to be pulled in August 2021, I am very concerned that this feature is not available in Edge yet.

    I echo all the comments here: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/13358292-open-in-explorer

    Re how impossible it is to get by without file explorer and the sync method is 1. buggy, causes slowdown, is generally irritating. 2. not appropriate on people's personal devices they have been forced to use since the pandemic.
