My Automatic file downloads setting is disabled, how to enable it? <code>Automatic file downloads</code> setting is disabled

  • Doesn't it say just above the button what it is for?

  • OneDrive say that it can't download files which "may" due to this setting, come to this setting and nothing blocked :(

When this button is greyed out, it means you have not blocked any apps from requesting automatic file downloads. I have not blocked apps from downloading file and my setting is greyed out as well.
