Copy link/share a onedrive link
I need the copy link/share a onedrive link .... the new version doesn't come with it which is really inconvenience.
This vanished from the context menu on my machine.
As it turns out, OneDrive had stopped syncing.
I have my ethernet connection set as a "metered connection" in order to stop Windows Update from working. I can't have this machine automatically updated and doing that plus disabling the Windows Update service seems to have achieved what I wanted. It no longer updates itself.
As a result OneDrive was "paused". If I right click on the icon in the taskbar and then click the ... icon and resume syncing, the share option returns.

I've already had several complaints from my end users that the "Share a OneDrive link" from Windows File Explorer is available for personal OneDrive and their Box accounts, but not from OneDrive for Business or synchronized SharePoint document repositories. This lack of ability seems a horrible oversight if you guys want to be a market leader in this space.

Really bad choice to leave direct link sharing opition off from Business version!
