Hidden among the Patch Tuesday security updates this week was an interesting update for OneDrive in Windows 8.1 which includes both fixes and new features.

Microsoft Updates OneDrive in Windows 8.1

From Supersite for Windows:
This may not seem like a big deal, as the changes appear to be somewhat subtle. But in comparing this update to a pre-update version, it's pretty clear that this is a most welcome change that makes the desktop experience a bit more like it was in Windows 7. Which is to say, better.

To understand what I mean, consider how OneDrive worked before the update. If you clicked the OneDrive icon in the system tray, a File Explorer window would open (for some reason). And if you right-clicked the icon, you'd get a small menu with just two choices: Open OneDrive in File Explorer and View Sync Problems (which would be grayed out if there were no problems).
