In this article I cover how to seamlessly add a SharePoint Site Documents folder within Windows File Explorer.

With this addition you will now be able to easily access and manage your SharePoint Site files directly from your local Windows file manager, boosting your productivity and streamlining your workflow.


Add SharePoint Site Documents folder to Windows File Explorer

To add a SharePoint site to Windows 11 File Explorer, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to Microsoft 365: Open your web browser, log in to your Microsoft Office account, and navigate to the SharePoint web page.
  2. Access the Team Site Documents Page: Once logged in, find the Team Site documents page you want to add to File Explorer.
  3. Click the Sync Icon: Instead of an intuitive “Add Team Site to File Explorer” button, click the Sync icon. This action will create a new OneDrive-supported folder on your PC with the same name as the SharePoint Team Site.

Now you’ll be able to seamlessly access your SharePoint documents using desktop versions of Microsoft’s office productivity suite, treating the SharePoint Team Site like any other OneDrive directory.
