How can I see links to the Sharpoint libraries in other user OneDrive For Business?

We have Microsoft 365 E5 licenses, my account is GA.

I need to view links to folders in the SharePoint Document Library in another 365 user's OneDrive.
By default, after creating a link in user panel in 365 Admin Center (in Active Users) to view the content of the user's OneDrive and following it, only regular content (subfolders and files) is displayed, but not links to the folders in SPO document libraries.

I need to view that links because it is not possible to connect to the user's computer to solve the problem or connect to OneDrive App in another PC with that user account.

Hi @AllanStark ,

Do you have permission to the user's site or library?

Per my test, if you have permission to this site and only want to check the contents of the library, then you could see these libraries with your account from the link created in your panel.

Hi @ElsieLu-MSFT
Thank you for your answer.

I meant how can I see the user's links in his OneDrive as shown in the first screenshot below (from my account):

Because if I try to view the content of the user's OneDrive by creating a temporary link from the 365 Admin Center, I see something similar to the second screenshot:

There the old SPO design and all links are hidden, only regular files and folders are visible.

Hi @AllanStark ,

Per my understanding, yes, you could see some regular files however not other users' library from your account.

SharePoint has a lot of restrictions on permissions. If from the SP's point of view, you want to view the files in the library from your account, you still need permissions in this library.

In fact, we provide help on SharePoint in this forum, but we can only provide limited help for OneDrive. I suggest you go to the OneDrive forum for more professional advice:
OneDrive for Business

Thanks for your understanding and support. :)
