Add a shortcut to a SharePoint folder you frequently access
Since you will be working mostly out of your OneDrive window, you will want to add shortcuts to those folders in SharePoint libraries which you frequently access. This post will walk you through the process to add these shortcuts.
This process adds shortcut links to the desired SharePoint library folders. It does not copy or move the selected folders. Changes you make to the contents of the linked folders, even though they appear in your OneDrive Dashboard, will take place in the SharePoint library folders.
How to add a shortcut to a SharePoint folder
These steps will put a shortcut to the selected SharePoint folder in your OneDrive Dashboard.
I want to add a shortcut to a file (instead of a folder)
O365 does not allow shortcuts to files. Please add a shortcut to the folder that contains the file.
I’m getting the message “This folder is already in your shortcut to <folder name>”
This message means that you have already created a shortcut to a parent folder of the selected folder. O365 does not allow this. If you still want to create a shortcut to the selected folder, you must first remove the shortcut to the parent folder.
