    Default Onedrive camera roll

    I use Onedrive for pics taken by a Samsung Galaxy. So long as I have Onedrive turned on in Android, the pics will appear on my PC. No cords to connect, it's great.

    What I'd like to do is Open Onedrive and navigate to Onedrive/Pictures/Camera-Roll in a single click. At times I need this multiple times a day so the convenience of one click opening would be good.
    Have studied the issue several times but the solution alludes. What am I missing?

    Thanks.

    Navigate to that file in file explorer, right click the file and put it in quick access. That will get you to 2 clicks.You may then be able to make a shortcut to that location on your desktop.

    Thanks. I'm able to get it down to a 1 or 2-click operation now, depending.
    The first way is via a desktop icon,. Of course it can require a click to get to the desktop in the first instance.
    The 2nd way is right click on explorer on taskbar, then left click on the pinned folder.
    I'm calling it progress, though I'd really like for it to have its' own taskbar icon and I'm not seeing a way of doing that other than having it as a pinned explorer folder.
    Thanks to Clive. This forum's the best!

    Oh, and I forgot to mention, Onedrive needed to be running. This I set to automatic start. In an absolutely ideal world, I'd have my taskbar icon starting Onedrive and opening the Camera Roll folder, Boom!

    Right Click the Desktop Icon and pin it to the Taskbar.

    Good thought but there is no Pin to Taskbar option. It appears to be only for programs? There is a "Pin to Start" which works ok. That's a 2 click... by going to Start, then to Camera roll icon. This is infinitely better option than what I had till today as well.

    I'd wondered if I could edit the Onedrive icon to not only start the program but to open the folder of my choice. Otherwise could I set Onedrive root directory as the folder for the camera upload? These settings appear to be deeply imbedded in the Onedrive program? If I can't tick a box setting then it seems to be beyond what's achievable unless I'm a programmer.

    You can pin any folder to the taskbar, just takes a couple of steps you wouldn't normally do in making a shortcut.

    Have a read https://winaero.com/pin-folder-taskbar-windows-10/

    The Trick is to add explorer.exe at the beginning.

    Note: 4&5 Are optional.

    I just drag and drop any desktop shortcut icon to the taskbar in Win 7.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Its been removed from W10. Only location you get to pin is to File Explorer, you can still drag /Drop with program shortcuts though
