Allow Browsing and Fetching Files from ANY connected Device
There used to be a feature called "Fetch my files" which disappeared with Windows 8.1
Please bring it back by allowing me to select not only "One Drive" and "This PC" from the drop-down in the Modern app, but allow me to select any of my other connected PCs (connected via the same Microsoft ID). I should be able to grab a file from any of them, no matter where I am in the world, as long as the other device is on and available.
You get a similar function from the "HomeGroup" node in File Explorer on Desktop, but not quite, as it only works on the local network. I think on the desktop, OneDrive should have a node for "Connected Devices" or "My Other Devices" which I can expand to get a list of them, and then further drill into in order to browse files on those PCs.
Basically, I should be able to access any file either in the cloud or on any connected PC I have... regardless of where I am.

This is back in Windows 10! It's just disabled by default.

I agree with pmbAustin, this was a very unique and useful aspect of OneDrive that makes no sense not to have when I upgrade my Windows 7 to Windows 8.1
Also, for OneDrive for Business, I hope this makes an option the administrator can control (enable/disable) for users.
