Download and use

First select the folders/files required. Then click Download. OneDrive packages the files in a zip file and, with your agreement, downloads to the Downloads folder. In the example, all the available folders are selected. All the files will be in zip file named using today's date.


In the Downloads folder is found the zip file. A new folder called numbers is made in Desktop folder and the zip file is moved there.


The left pane can keep a view of the folders structures.


I use 7-Zip to extract files from zipped files. 7-Zip allows me to "Extract here".


The folders and files are extracted. To show this I expand the numbers folder to reveal all the folders downloaded.
The blue-b folder is displayed in the right pane and we see the expected files in there.
