Enable Known Folder Move using regedit – OneDrive

Known Folder Move is a “new” functionality in OneDrive that enables you to seamlessly recreate the same user experience across multiple devices .

Expecially useful in a Windows Virtual Desktop / VDI environment, it automatically syncs all the “Known Folders” (Desktop, Documents, Pictures etc.) when a user logs in.

To enable it via Registry Editor you’ll first have to get your tenant ID. Find it here under “Directory ID”:
