How can I pause sync?

How can I pause sync?

Sometimes when I have slow browsing, I would like to have a 'Sync Pause' button, to reduce network clutter, and achieve fast browser browsing. And when I'm done with the browser, I'll click 'Continue Sync'. (I do not intend to delay the messages that exist today)

You can already do this via the desktop app, however, it would be impossible to do this via website uploads.

Thank you for the help, it's a button I did not know, it's exactly what I was looking for.

I have tried this with the latest windows 10 and it is not allowing for a "Pause file sync" option.
 I thought it may be due to having the taskbar hidden in desktop mode, but after unchecking the "Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode" it is still not allowing me an option to pause the sync.

Hey @Jgarb, sorry to jump in, but can you clarify if you're following these steps to pause syncing?

You should be seeing the option to pause syncing after clicking on the app's icon in your system tray
