Uploading FOLDERS to OneDrive - Impossible ??

I have literally spent hours researching to find an accurate step-by-step instruction on how to upload FOLDERS to OneDrive (I know how to upload files). First, I'm shocked it's not a feature of onedrive and made as easy as uploading files??
Sample of many Dead Ends "Just use the Upload tab in Edge." Don't find a way to enable an upload tab in Edge settings, or searches. And there are similar difficulties with Firefox and Chrome.

Log into one drive
Click upload
Click folder
Browse to folder and click open and watch it magically appear

Easy peasy

This is what I get on the last pic when I click select it copies the folder to OD.

Are you login into one drive or just trying to add the folder from somewhere else?

There must be some difference between the versions of drop box as you do not show the upload next to the new +.
Are you using win 10?
Are you using app to access?
Is this though office 365?

Sure is frustrating but there is nothing wrong with drop box.

Did you mean OneDrive in your first sentence? Yes I'm using Windows 10, and the OneDrive app, and I just subscribed to Office 365.

I was looking forward to the integration that it offered with OneDrive. In my quest to make OneDrive work I read many, many OneDrive issues, many not resolved. Your help is appreciated, Best - Bob

Yes old man brain.

Have you tried just logging into OD on the internet there may be some differences between the app and a direct login.
My company uses O365 and I login at OD there and it is the same as a direct login. Hard to understand what the difference could be.

OK one more thing to try.

Open file explorer
Click OenDrive down arrow
Then click this PC
Select the folder copy it
Paste it to OD
Should show up there with blue circular arrows to show it is uploading to OD
Then should be on OD and in you this PC

If this doesn't work I'm out of suggestions.

Been similarly frustrated. Discovered folders will easily upload to OneDrive when using a Chrome browser to host OneDrive. If using Internet Explorer (and perhaps also Microsoft Edge), folders cannot be uploaded. Go figure ... awful user interface.

I have the same problem but with the android app...would soooooooooooo appreciate if a whole folder can be uploaded, not just single files.

You can also upload Folders to the Onedrive. Go to Chrome and Login to Onedrive.com then Click on the Upload > Folders. Browser through the fileexplorer and click on the folder you want to upload. OneDrive wil show the progress of the Folder Upload. I tried this for uploading my QuickBooks Cloud data in my previous company. Hope so this helps you out.
