  1. Windows desktop settings don't always allow selection of folders to sync.

    When I right-click on the OneDrive icon in Windows and select Settings, I often, but not always, get the option to "Choose folder to sync on this device". Why doesn't it always work? What makes the option disappear? It seems inconsistent and is frustrating when I expect the option after seeing it then it's gone.

    I suppose I can go to my OneDrive folder in Windows Explorer and right-click, then select either Make Offline or Online-only, but I'd sure like to see this irritation fixed.

  2. Storage path in OneDrive for new photos should be adaptable.

    Storage path in OneDrive for new photos should be adaptable. So if you have more than one Device that can make Potos you can areate a Folder for each Device.

  4. Shutdown-Button in Start-Menu

    I really would appreciate it when it would be possible to switch on and of the appearence of the following buttons: "shutdown", "restart",...

    I want to click once on the Windows button on the left down corner, then I want to directly click on shutdown => ONE CLICK LESS!!!

    At the moment it takes 3 clicks, I think 2 clicks are more than enough to shutdown and of course this should be optional like every option should be. The users who don't like it leave it off and useres like me switch on the appropriate buttons...

    I also wouldn't need…

  5. Synchronisationinformationen

    OneDrive for Business is designed for team collaboration. Therefore, it would be very helpful, if I had the opportunity to view who / when made the changes in a kind of protocol.

  12. I'd like to permanently get rid of OneDrive on my PC.

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Turn-off-or-uninstall-OneDrive-f32a17ce-3336-40fe-9c38-6efb09f944b0
    is the document referred to but having windows 10 home edition, it has no gpedit.msc. I sure would like to eliminate this waste of my time on my computers but removing it or even disabling it has been made difficult.

  19. windows 10 Mobile auto-delete or replace with thumbnail on upload

    This is a request for Windows 10 Mobile, not Windows Phone 8.1 but there is no category.

    After a picture is uploaded to OneDrive, we need an option to either delete the local copy or convert it to a small thumbnail. In the current version, if you have the photos app set (default) to show the cloud content then when you delete the file it will delete from the phone and OneDrive. My phone is full of pictures and videos which I can only guarantee are backed up if I connect my phone to a PC and move them and…

  20. Disable the old OneDrive for Business Sync Client once the New Verstion is Installed

    Very distracting to have three onedrive "clouds" in the task bar (grey and two blue ones). You can exit the old version but Windows 10 then throws an error and re-launches. Exit again and the icon goes away until reboot.
