I looked at the Sync Word thread, and don't know the answer.
I believe it's possible, but i don't know the best way to do it.

No issues, thanks for having a look.

I believe they need to be added in a work group and check documents........just a guess.

Thanks anyways have a great day!

That's fine but be aware if a file gets put in the public folder for whatever reason, you won't see it in the Libraries view.
I include multiple folders in my libraries, so i can see everything, even if something got put into a folder i didn't expect, such as "public".

If you only have 1 folder and a file is not listed in Libraries, you can search elsewhere for the file.
You might find it in another folder such as Public.

So you mean to imply, that's its better to have 2 locations vs 1....... XPS (default) and Public?

Thanks.

If you don't include the Public folder in Libraries, and a file gets put there, you won't see it in the Libraries view.
I've had that happen, so i include many folders in my Library, then i should be able to more easily find and see it.
It's a personal choice, i want to more easily find and see everything, so i include public in my libraries.
I have more than 2 folder locations included in my libraries

You can select the columns you want to see.
This is displayed in the Details view, and that's what i normally use.

Here is a snip where i show the detail view, and include the folder path.
This is just an example of what can be done.

Do you see all the different folder paths in my example ?

Yes I see, you have created an extra, have 3 saved locations..........man you are one genius.

I thought keeping one location is simpler, it all started with when by accident I slipped the synaptic touch mouse over and messed up the 2 locations, earlier to that I never had the idea of keeping a single or more than 3........

Thanks again.



BTW: Syncing MS Word on Cloud isn't a good idea, rather keep it on flash, since it contains 200K pages of my research.
