    No, I've only got "Open OneDrive in File Explorer" and "View sync problems"...

    Edit: The "View sync problems" is greyed out exactly like yours.

    It sounds like you are missing a few Windows Updates yet. Double check to see if you may have any more available to install.

    Haha, you were right again. Even though I installed all available updates earlier there were some yet to be installed. I've installed them all now and I've got the functionality I searched for. Thank you very much for your help yet again!
