OneDrive on new laptop won't point to Business OneDrive

I have O365 Business Premium and a lot of data in the Business OneDrive
I have a new Win 10 Home laptop and can connect to that Work account OK.
HOWEVER, in the Users\dmacl\Documents\OneDrive, the what is displayed is the Personal OneDrive generated automatically.

How can I get that reference replaced with the correct one pointing to the Business OneDrive?

Yes. I have done that from the new laptop. I can upload or download files. But if I click Sync, it gives me a popup to some obscure sync too.

Do you see two cloud icons, one in white color (onedrive - personal) and another in blue color (onedrive - business) in systray (lower right of the task bar) like the one in the link above?

If yes, please double check the location below.

Users\dmacl\Documents\OneDrive\ (personal)

Users\dmacl\Documents\OneDrive - your corporation\ (business)
Good question, Jackie. I see NO cloud icons in the systray, either displayed or hidden,.

(On my other Win 10 computer, I have a blue cloud icon  in the systray and all is well)

Download and install onedrive client from the link above and logon with your o365 account afterwards.
Jackie, That did it. Thanks much.
Good solution
