Done.
 
The generic link pop-up panel has the same logo as OneDrive in the top left corner.

This is excellent!  Thank you, Mark.

As Andy mentioned, the initial pop-up to add a Generic Link shows the Microsoft OneDrive symbol.

Also, in the file list, I suggest replacing the word “Generic” with “Link”, or even the full phrase “Generic Link".  If there only other real files and subfolders in the folder, “Generic” might be confusing.

Instead of attempting to add a link type for every service out there, it would be nice to have a generic link type that uses a more generic icon.  A search for “external link Icon” brings up some familiar ones with a little square with an arrow pointing out of it.  Or you use the chain-link icon used in the groups.io message composer.

Done.

Cheers,

Last summer Mark added links in the files sections, with type of Google Drive/Docs, Dropbox, Box, or Microsoft Onedrive. Each link type has a nice icon to go with it representive of the service.

One group I’m in is doing quite a bit of file hosting on a different platform: archive.org.
