Offline Files Won't Enable in Windows 10 Pro

Hi there,

I have recently got a new laptop, and as I wanted to use the network offline files (not onedrive offline) I upgraded it from Windows 10 Home to Pro specifically for that feature.

I have done this upgrade before with no problems.

However, on this laptop, when I go to the Control Panel, select 'Manage Offline Files', and click 'Enable offline files', simply nothing happens; no error message is displayed.

I have tried to enable offline files multiple times (tried restarting), with no luck.

How can I fix this (resetting would be my very last resort)?

Many thanks.
Hi, had the same problem to solve for a customer. The solution was an Inplace Upgrade.

So get a Windows 10 Pro Image/Media and run the Setup.exe. Take care that you take all your apps and files with you (selected by default).
