How to create Microsoft Teams folder shortcut in your windows file explorer

Being a Microsoft Partner for Application Development, we don’t like to use anything but Microsoft Teams. Is that even surprising? All SMBs or Enterprises must adopt Microsoft Teams if you already have Office 365.


Well, this is for the people who are already using Teams. Under Teams when you create separate channels, you have a storage space for Files. This allows keeping all your files related to the channel at one place and share within the team members.


These files are stored in SharePoint. But accessing files in Teams and Sharepoint is bit not user-friendly. Wouldn’t it be easier if those files were available in Windows File Explorer.


Here are the steps how to create shortcut in File Explorer to a Teams File location.


Goto Teams channel > Files and look for “Open in Sharepoint”. Click on that.​

In Sharepoint site, you will see “Add shortcut to OneDrive”

In a few seconds you are all set. Go to your File Explorer and look under “OneDrive — Your Business Name” and you will find the new folder.
