  4. let me know what file is currently syncing.

    Currently I have no idea what file is currently being synced. I only know that OneDrive is uploading or downloading, but I don't know what it is downloading or uploading.

  5. Prevent Onedrive from starting automatically when opening Office files stored locally in Onedrive folder

    Issue: Opening an Office file stored locally in your Onedrive folder starts Onedrive app automatically

    Consequences: This is extremely unfavorable for ppl with limited bandwidth/traffic (e.g. mobile connection).

    Solution: Do not decide for users and start Onedrive without user's permission! Onedrive should not start silently and robbing bandwidth. Let the user decide when Onedrive should connect to the internet and upload files.

  6. Make OneDrive accessible to Uninstall like any other app/program.

    Make OneDrive accessible to Uninstall like any other app/program. The only way I can get this intrusive program out of my face is to disable it in Start Up.

  7. Add place holders back and fix sync issues

    The point of cloud storage is to save space as well as having everything on the go. Requiring files to be stored locally in order to see them from the cloud is absurd. 10 steps backwards from the previous OS.
    Syncing is terrible. Icon always says processing changes. Last straw for me is when I dumped a 15kb spreadsheet in a folder on my PC and it took over an hour to sync up. Yet it kept saying processing changes. This is just terrible. Anymore steps backwards and this thing falls off completely.

  8. Have a button to restart the sync process. It dies and doesnt restart

    There is no button to restart to sync. I have errors and the messages dont tell me anything useful. SO what do I do?? Need to kill and restart the sync process. Dont hide it. Have it easy to find.

  9. Please add a sync now option to windows 10 onedrive

    When I added folders to one computer and then turned on the other computer I had to wait for a time before they appeared on onedrive. I wanted to be able to tell onedrive to syn now but there was no option, I just had to wait.

  10. make it easy to use

    Look at how it worked in 8.1! Easy to turn on and off. The new, "improved" version is a nightmare. USELESS.

  11. App in Windows 10

    Android has it, iOS has it, W10 does not.

    I have big problems accessing my files at OneDrive from my tablets at the moment, yes, Photos solves some of the problem but not all.

    What about shared files (Photos can't access that)?
    What about other files that I really can't sync to my devices as real files (using the new OneDrive Desktop sync)?

    At all my non-windows devices I can use the app, with my windows tablets I have to use the web browser! Really?

    Either release an app to access my files or placesholders as in Windows 8.1

  14. i hope onedrive would be able to synchronize "desktop"

    since all my working papers, words and pdf and things like that, are directly placed on my desktop, it would be more convenient if onedrive would be able to synchronize the desktop. So everytime I renewal the contents, i need not to put them into a specific folder.

  18. add a button to sync manually

    I uploaded a file from my phone, but I can't see it on my Win10 desktop because it hasn't synced yet, and there's no obvious button to manually sync the drive
