  3. Bring Back The OneDrive Windows Store App From Windows 8

    It was much more informative than the desktop app. I like to be able to see the files in the queue and other activities going on.

  4. win10 TP Build 10159. i now have the one drive up and running. However, i can not move the one drive path nor do i have the off line option.

    I am running windows 10 TP Build 10159. I now have the one drive up and running. However, I can not move the one drive path nor do I have the off line option. the surface model does not have a large Hard drive so this off line only option is the best of both worlds. I can still have it as just a back up and sync just the files I need at the time.

  5. Videos no longer play in OneDrive within site

    Recently my videos no longer play within the OneDrive website or IOS.
    They always played, I received a email from MS some codecs are no longer supported. Some videos that’s still play use the same Mov or MP4 format. On top of it Microsoft still charges me for a service that recently stopped working

  6. Sync files stored on the desktop

    iCloud does this and it's a fabulous option. Lots of people store many files on their desktop and they're the easiest to accidentally lose
    Adding an option for OneDrive to sync files on the desktop (not including shortcuts) would be great.

  8. Open instead of download

    One of the things I like the least about One Drive is that I have to download what I've open rather than just a right click to 'open with' or simply double click to have it open to its default file type.

  12. HTML files don't display properly. Yes, they do, for about a second, but then is replaced by the source HTML text.

    Instead of flashing the rendered HTML file for a fraction of a second, give the user the option to display the rendered file or the source text.

  13. Upload: Ability to delete a file blocking all uploads

    Upload: Ability to delete a file blocking all uploads - One Drive fails to sync when it runs into a file with "characters that are not allowed". It directs the user to rename the file (in this case, desktop.ini ... so it's not even a "character" issue) but it doesn't show you where the file is.

    The solution is to let you delete the file (or rename it) right from the OneDrive error box (OneDrive needs your attention).

    As it stands, I'm stuck. I suppose the usual solution is to reboot my PC (I've already "rebooted" OneDrive.

    Thank you.

  17. Add Better Support for OneDrive in Internet Explorer 11 when using New List Experience

    Since Microsoft has standardized OneDrive to use the new list experience (SharePoint) when using a browser, it appears the Search field returns an error when searching for a file using Internet Explorer 11. Users now have to click the 'Return to Classic OneDrive' in order to search for a file. The OneDrive web interface works find with Chrome and Mozilla however.

  18. can't copy files unless logged in and syncing

    I don't have "on demand" checked, but I tried to copy a 200Gb folder to another windows folder for backup, and after 2 days, it still said "preparing to copy" ...and was still counting files ...and after reading some posts and how others said it never copied, I decided to start over...so I logged in, now it counted 200Gb in less than 5 min. Why is it, that it won't work like "just a regular folder" when I want it to, when I don't want it to sync. It's like if it's not connected, you can't do a **** thing…

  20. Stop forcing OneDrive on Windows 10 users.

    Stop forcing OneDrive on Windows 10 users. Its really agitating me. Especially since the location for pictures and documents on the 'This PC' window in File Explorer was changed to the OneDrive folder. Like Microsoft, Windows 10 is a significant improvement over the previous Windows versions. Stop ruining my user experience with attempting to force me into using OneDrive .
