  1. Windows 8.1's "smart sync"

    I really miss the way files were synced on Windows 8.1. The "smart sync" option was the best thing about OneDrive, and it made file sharing, and file managing much better, since it was available within File Explorer, rather than doing so the on the web browser. If it this option could come back for Windows 10, and do so much better, with upload/download speed/times, as well as the option to pause/resume, and many other options, it would make OneDrive far better.

  3. Update the OneDrive system tray icon to match the icon design in Windows 10

    The system tray icon for OneDrive is out of place- it's still a solid fill, like Windows 7 or 8 icons. Windows 10's system tray icons are all wireframe.

  6. Possibly add the option to hide the icon in the task bar.

    Many programs use this ability without exiting, would be nice to see with this too. Other than that, I use OneDrive all the time, would say access it across two Android devices, and PC at least 10 times a day without issues.

  7. Please add context menu to onedrive folder "Forget all about this file here and download it right now instead"

    It happens very often that the sync doesn't work.
    More control would save my precious time.
    I've already lost one hour bypassing onedrive sync to get the right file from OneDrive back into the onedriver sync Folder on the pc

  8. List name of synced files

    I wish it was created a list with name and timedate for the last synced files by clicking on taskbar icon (like DropBox).

  9. Windows 10 is a product of high quality. However, I'd like to help with my suggestions. Rafael Aguilar

    Windows 10 is a product of high quality. However, I'd like to help with my suggestions.

    I don't speak a word of English, I'm Spanish Castilla and the Castilians bothers us having to learn English (do not take it wrong, please). The case is for example:

    With OneDrive, you have a serious problem with the translation to the Spanish. The product is very good, however to not be fully translated into the Spanish of Spain, you are wasting large market posed by persons aged 45 years or more, these people are not willing to learn English. I have sensed that…

  10. Keep Scroll in the Mobile App

    When I move up a folder in the mobile app the scroll is reset to the top. It be much nicer of the scroll remembered where I was in that folder.

  16. Raccolta foto

    Utilizzando Raccolta Foto connesso all'account sarebbe utile poter scambiare le informazioni in OneDrive come i tag.

    Sarebbe utile poter visualizzare e scambiare anche tutti i file di OneDrive condivisi da altri con i relativi tag.

  17. One Drive needs to be an option not a requirement

    One Drive is probably great for some people. I am not one of them. I view my personal computer as just that: Personal. I don't store things on the cloud. I have my own back ups. The last thing I ever need is for my information to be floating out in cyber-land.

  19. Molesta demasiado

    OneDrive debería molestar mucho menos al usuario, al modo de Dropbox, que uno no se entera que está en ejecución.
