olavrb Posted August 29, 2021 Share Posted August 29, 2021 (edited) I use Paint.NET on multiple machines where I put app files (plugins) in my personal OneDrive, so I don't have to maintain this manually on all the devices. For machines without Known Folder Move (KFM) with OneDrive for Business, it has worked fine to create a directory symbolic link from "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Paint.NET App Files" to "%ONEDRIVECONSUMER%\_Share\AppData\Paint.net\AppFiles", where I have the folders "Effects", "FileTypes" and "Shapes". The "_Share" folder in my OneDrive is set to always be available offline, so no "Files on-deman" causing issues here. Running v4.2.16 from Microsoft Store, but don't think that's relevant here. Here is the CMD (as admin) command I used, if anyone is interested: mklink /D "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Paint.NET App Files" "%ONEDRIVECONSUMER%\_Share\AppData\Paint.net\AppFiles" I think this failed this time due to my company using known folder move (KFM) with OneDrive for Business, as I see Paint.NET have created a "paint.net App Files" folder inside "%ONEDRIVECOMMERCIAL%\Documents". But symbolic linking from one OneDrive to another makes changes one place being uploaded to both OneDrives, so I'd rather avoid that if I could. Then I thought: It would be nice if it was possible to set a different directory for Paint.NET app files. Then I could just set this settings to the folder in my OneDrive.
