I found an effective way to do this of right clicking on folders like Pictures, Desktop, going to Properties, then the Location tab and chaning the location to the ONe Drive folder. Seems to work well for me and in theory could be automated in a large setup since Group Policy allows for setting the locations of these folders.
This is possible with OneDrive for Business / SharePoint, but why not in OneDrive.com?
We’re looking at two related pieces of this:
1) For OneDrive for Business, enable shared folders to be added to the root of the OneDrive folder at all (like in OneDrive Personal).
2) For OneDrive across business and personal, enable shared folders to be placed into subfolders.
We appreciate your patience; this is significant engineering work given the architecture of the products and our diverse customer base, spanning individuals to small businesses to multi-national enterprises to government agencies. We aim to address this while maintaining our industry-leading security, privacy, and compliance commitments.
Thank you for the continued feedback.
This really needs to be added
