  1. Maybe a search in each document?

    I find that it would b very helpful if we could find and search specific key words so that us consumers can find specific key words easily and efficiently

  3. Use voice recognition to extract text from audio and video to feed the search engine

    Onedrive search capability is quite impressive, but it does not find content within audio and video files. Voice recognition technology could extract the text within video and audio and feed the search engine. You could find songs typing the lyrics, or find family video using a conversation.

  6. Display search results from OneDrive and PCs merged

    Windows Search is indexing local files, OneDrive is indexing cloud files. Based on the feature that can fetch "any files on a pc" through OneDrive, it would be completely crazy to be able to search all our files, cloud and PCs from the OneDrive web site.

    I mean I'm on the go, using my tablet connected on the internet. I know I have a file on my computer at home somewhere that I need but I don't know where. If I search for the file on OneDrive, it would find it on my computer and gives me the ability to…
