Link Windows libraries to OneDrive
Imagine this: You have a Windows Desktop, Surface/Notebook/Tablet and a Windows Phone. You want all files that you edit to save directly to OneDrive, so all devices contain the same data and you don't want to always decide between the Windows libraries and the OneDrive folders.
As a result, you want to link the local libraries on every device with the suiting OneDrive folder. When your saving files to your Documents Windows library, it is then syncing with OneDrive.
This should be configured with the OneDrive client for your device. The 30 GB storage that are now available should be enough for most users to keep all their documents and photos in OneDrive or even a smaller music library.
Thanks for the suggestion. If you open settings by right-clicking on the OneDrive cloud icon in your systray, you’ll see an “auto-save” tab. Currently we make it easy to default your Documents and Pictures folders to OneDrive. You can actually re-map any of the Windows known folders to point to OneDrive folders, too. Enjoy!

Except I don't have the one drive cloud ICON in my sysray, and the old once drive sync folders don't actually sync.

thanks, but i do like to have the possibility to acces my files online like a library. instead of the folder it is now,in the same way as is now done with photos
and also with video and music files

You can achieve this by changing the location of those folders to be within the OneDrive folder. Right click the folders you want within your profile (e.g. Photos, Videos, Documents, Desktop), go to the location tab, and change the path to sit within the OneDrive folder. I've done this for a few members of my family, and now my mother just magically thinks that files are saved both on her surface and her desktop.
Nevertheless, I agree there should be an easy way that allows users to opt in/out to such a feature. Maybe this should be a question during OOBE when people connect their Microsoft account?
