  2. Return to a combination of hamburger and pivot for onedrive app for w10m

    Just as the title describes. This was already part of the app a few months ago, it was an amazing combination of the pivot and hamburger. The usability became worse as the pivot disappeared. Would love to see that combination back in w10m.

  8. Customize the ICON folders (and keep it after sync)

    In Windows, we have the possibility to customize the icon of a folder. But if we do it in a OneDrive folder the sync resets the default icon..

  9. Let me prevent auto startup

    I wish to have the ability to prevent onedrive from running at startup and/or still be able to manually start or stop onedrive entirely including the sync processes from the desktop.

    I use a laptop for a dedicated software system setup that when onsite does not have internet access by design but the constant attempting to sync and starting up without internet present seems to cause a drain on system resources and interferes with my dedicated software from maintaining a constant output control system.

  10. I'm done with OneDrive.

    Too many bugs, too slow. OneDrive continues to tell me it can't merge changes to a document THAT HASN'T BEEN EDITED. OneDrive then creates duplicate files appended with the name of the computer I'm working on. THIS IS INSANE AND HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A MONTH. The problem is on the OneDrive side and needs to be fixed. Microsoft - fix this!!! Until this is acknowledged and fixed my Microsoft, and until the Shared documents sync properly with the desktop client, I'm done with OneDrive. Dropbox has never let me down like this poor imitation from Microsoft.

  16. Get Windows 10 to allow online/offline only for files

    I have limited space on my PC, it's hard to replace disk drive space on my PC, and am using D:/ for OneDrive. Handy enough.

    It would be great to allow folders in OneDrive to be offline/online only to help conserve space on PCs - like in Windows 8.1 - I am not sure why this was removed in Windows 10 (Preview, build 1030).

  17. Improve functionality with removable media

    I use a portable hard drive to store my OneDrive folder. I often undock my laptop and take it on the road but not the hard drive. When the computer starts I get an error message that the OneDrive folder is missing and then OneDrive is automatically disabled. I then have to manually start OneDrive and completely setup OneDrive again the next time I use it with the portable hard drive. I feel that OneDrive should be a little smarter than that and allow for the detachment of the media to occur without breaking the configuration every time.

  20. Colored File Folders in OneDrive

    Simply allowing users to assign file folders to better organize things in groups or types of files. Simple idea that allows people to see their types of files without having to read a single word.
