How to use OneDrive’s “smart files” in Windows 10 Technical Preview?

How can I use OneDrive’s smart files feature in Windows 10? In Windows 8.1, I could use file explorer to pick and choose which files were downloaded from the cloud and stored locally, and then I could edit them locally and pick and choose what stayed on local storage and what was returned to the cloud. How do you use this feature in Windows 10?

The short answer is that Microsoft broke this method of using OneDrive from previous Windows versions, and beta testers aren't happy. They moved this functionality from Windows Explorer to a special sync app that you have to run to move your files back and forth from the cloud to your local machine.

But Windows 10 is a moving target, and they could bring back the feature, maybe, in the next beta version. A more complete explanation can be found in this post from Ed Bott:

Looks like Davis has the right answer, but here's a link to the Windows 10 about page in case you want more information about it:
