Add OneDrive to This PC

I use OneDrive both for personal use and school through my University. I currently have my personal OneDrive listed under Devices and Drives in This PC in file explorer (see screenshot). I would like to add my university OneDrive in this same spot, but I can't for the life of me figure out how. Both OneDrive's are listed in the left hand navigation, but I can't get the University drive to show up in This PC. I tried dragging it, right clicking (there was no option to add it) and going into OneDrive settings. How do I do this, if it is possible at all?

If you right click the OneDrive icon, you should be given an option to add an account

I have both accounts added to my PC and I can access them, I simply want to be able to open the University Drive from This PC.

you would need another sync folder on your machine for the school account...

Unless I am missing something I have done this already. I have complete access to both my personal and school accounts on my PC. I am able to open both and both are set to sync. The only thing I am having trouble with is adding a link to my school drive in This PC. I would like a link to my school drive (like I have to my personal drive) in the spot indicated by the arrow in the screenshot below.

Have you tried mapping the other OneDrive account as a Network Drive?

Something like: https://www.comtech-networking.com/blog/item/404-how-to-map-onedrive-as-a-network-drive-to-see-all-your-files/

I just tried that and I don't think it will work because it is a University account and is controlled by the school. There is no CID in the address bar as required by that guide.

Well, there was nothing else that I could find. If there is no CID, maybe you just can't add it there if there is a second account already in place.  

 

Sorry, man. Keep searching, maybe you find something somewhere...
