I want users to automatically be directed to the Document Library when visiting a Sharepoint Site (sites/sitename/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx). These are Office 365 group sites being used primarily for file sharing/syncing.

Using a page that contains the document library web part does not suffice as the web part does not include all the file and folder functions.

If I use Pages > +New > Link and use the document library URL, the resulting link opens a download of the URL shortcut when set as the homepage.

I see no available SPO cmdlets or parameters of existing cmdlets that allow setting the home page similar to Set-SPOHomeSite. This cmdlet seems to only set the global home site for the tenant, not for a specific site, and if I try to use Connect-SPOService on a specific /sites/ it fails to authenticate. I was hoping for something like:

Set-SPOSite -Identity https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename -HomePageURL https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx

You could use pnp powershell Set-PnPHomePage to set Document Library as Site's Homepage.

Connect-PnPOnline https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/michael/
Set-PnPHomePage -RootFolderRelativeUrl Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx
