Sharing by right clicking
I would like to be able to share a file by right clicking on it in Windows Explorer, like Dropbox and other file sharing tools do, rather than creating the sharing link via web.
OneDrive now supports this on Windows 7 and up. Just sign into the OneDrive sync app and right-click on a OneDrive file in Windows Explorer.

Bump. Company switched to OneDrive from google Drive. Now I have to open a web browser to share a folder with a link. Hopefully MS sees all the boards that are similar and sees the need.
Standard needed function for information sharing - totally integrated into Dropbox for a long time.
Why would you need/want to open a web client to get a link when you should be able to get it from File Explorer to paste into email?
Please can you put this function back asap

Agreed. The context menu was available in the groove.exe client.
There are about 10 different ideas relating to this same thing, and about 100 votes between them. Think this really needs doing...
THis is such a basic feature for a cloud sharing product I cannot believe it is not implemented. We have just rolled out OneDrive company-wide (100,000 employees) and nobody can believe that this feature is not present. Dropbox has it, why not Onedrive for Windows....sharing with colleagues through the web interface is ridiculously inefficient
Mac too. I wouldn't mind being bounced out to a web view either, that's fine :)
We're using OneDrive for Business, and the fact that guest download links can only be created from the web interface is annoying. Adding this feature to the desktop client as well would be a tremendous time saver. We often need to send large files to clients, and having to go through the web interface to create the guest download link takes time.
Please add this feature, just like in Dropbox.
