    No leaked update.

    I saw Wynona's screenshot & figured it maybe worked for some & not for others.

    clicking on either takes me to the respective location.
    LOL! I didn't notice that he's opening a OneDrive folder tile, not the app tile. His app tile is still named Skydrive, which I didn't see either. Typical me > Typical man.

    So does the update create a OneDrive folder tile then?

    I think yours is no longer able to connect to the SkyDrive server, so it defaults or redirects to your File Explorer.

    You could try the app troubleshooter to see if that helps.

    No 8.1.1.
    I don't install leaks.

    Wait! There is much confusion here:

    David did not install the leaked updates but he has a OneDrive folder and a OneDrive app on his start screen.

    I have the OneDrive app but I do not yet have a OneDrive folder. I can only assume it would have been created when I attempted to add some files.

    The general consensus was that the OneDrive app would not be available on Win 8.1 proper so the big question is: "How did David get that OneDrive app and folder before the official Win 8.1.1 update if he did not apply the leaked updates?"

    Hi David,

    Let me try your method and I'll see if we end up in the same place. I'll be back.

    UPDATE:
    No can do. I have the leaked updates applied. Anyone else willing to compare apples-to-apples for David?
