This article describes steps to always open File Explore to OneDrive‘s content in Windows 11.
By default, File Explorer will open with Quick Access so you can access your frequently used items and quickly find files, folders, and settings in Windows 11.
You can also change how File Explorer opens and what to display when it does. The Quick Access will show recently accessed files, folders, and pinned items. You can choose to have File Explorer open on This PC, so it also shows your default personal folders and systems’ drives.
