  2. Offline/Online Only option in OneDrive file explorer

    Return the option to mark files individually in Onedrive as offline or online only in Windows 10. Great feature available in 8.1 but now absent in 10.

  3. Return option to "Sync Now" aka manual sync.

    This will be a godsend for those who have flaky internet connection that causes auto sync to fail.

  4. How to change the location of onedrive files?

    I DO NOT want to store all the onedrive files in partition C. I want to put them in partition D. However, I cannot find an option to change the location of the files after they're all synced and stored in partition C. How to move onedrive files to another location on the disk?

  5. Windows 10 OneDrive: When sync error encountered, provide hyperlink to file that is in question.

    One drive indicates a sync error. Upon investigating, it indicated 2 files will not sync. However... it just presents the name. If I hover, on name it will present the path for approx 2 seconds (then disappears). Since the path is 3 lines of single spaced text.. I can't remember it all in 2 secs. So, it required me to navigate in File Explorer window while repetitively ":hovering" on the path to eventually find the problem file. Painful. Please enable "hyperlink": functionality to get me to the file folder quickly.

  6. windows media player minimized in the task line

    maybe i'm missing the wrong terms but i will try my best.
    i would love to have the media player back in the taskline after minimizing its window as seen long time ago in windwos xp.
    the possibility to change tracks or the volume in a second was - in my opinion - a brilliant and easy solution.
    lust but no least: would be great to have it in a cool and modern transparent look like the pop up for the volume.

    thanks!

  7. Please give us the ability to see our OneDrive files again without syncing

    Windows 10 has been really good so far except for the change to OneDrive. Not only did you take away the ability to see our files in Windows Explorer, you took away the app that lets us browse them. Please provide an intuitive way for us to use the many gigabytes of files that we don't have space to sync to our devices.

  9. Sync for OneDrive

    With Windows 8.1 was possible view all the folders in your OneDrive and then you could download it. Now with Windows 10 isn't the same. You have to download ALL the entire OneDrive folder and it isn't good, I have a SSD and I cannot put all my OneDrive. I want to put only the things i need. I hope you'll fix this problem

  11. OneDrive App wieder einführen!

    Bitte führt die OneDrive App Ansicht unter Windows 10 wieder ein, so wie es unter Windows 8 möglich war. Lasst die Nutzern doch selbst entscheiden ob sie die Explorer oder die App Variante nutzen möchten, dies ging unter Windows 8 doch auch!
    Für Geräte wie das Surface ist die App Ansicht deutlich angenehmer.

  12. Wieder auswählen können ob Datein nur Online oder auch Offline zur Verfügung gestellt bekommt.

    Unter Windows 8 war es möglich in OneDrive Dateien hochzuladen, diese waren dann auf dem jeweiligen PC automatisch offline verfügbar. Dateien die von anderen Quellen hochgeladen wurden, waren nur online verfügbar, es sei den man hat die Datei oder den übergeordneten Ordner als Offline markiert.
    Bitte führt diese Möglichkeit wieder ein, da ich meine Eigenen Dateien wie Bilder, Musik, Dokumente, etc. von meinem PC immer in OneDrive speichere. Ich will jedoch nicht das meine ganzen Dateien die ich z.B. von anderen Geräten hochlade immer auf meinen PC runtergeladen werden.

  18. The changes made to OneDrive integration in Windows 10 are horrible.

    This has really damaged my ability to use OneDrive. I now can only access my files through the terrible website, or I have to download and store numerous Gigabytes of data on my Surface that I did not have to store locally before. This is really, really bad, and may make me stop using OneDrive altogether in favor of some other cloud service. Not only is the File Explorer integration gone, the "Metro" app is gone too.

    I can't believe this was done, and I see from searching that it has been a subject of user outcry since Beta. Seriously,…
