  1. Return Windows 10 File Explorer OneDrive to Windows 8.1 Functionality

    Users really need to be able to see all folders and files on their OneDrive using File Explorer in Windows 10, not just those that are resident on the users' hard drives. Please, Microsoft, give us back the Windows 8 functionality of File Explorer access to all OneDrive files.

  4. Text in "files can't be synced with OneDrive" dialog is clipped

    I started getting a "2 files can't be synced with OneDrive" dialog several builds back, which is a regression. Now, the dialog itself has regressed, and the text "2 files can't be synced with OneDrive" is now clipped. The bottom half of the characters in that line are missing. Other text in the dialog is correct. I have a screenshot, attached.

    My screen is set to 100% scaling, and repros on both monitors (built-in LCD and external monitor over VGA cable) on my laptop.

  7. Why don't you add shared view option in onedrive folder in file explorer?

    Why don't you add shared view option in onedrive folder in file explorer? When it's possible to view on mobile application then I think it should be viewable on computer too. For instance my friend shared a folder with me if I want to access it once or multiple times, possible way that I have to go for browser which takes more time than opening directly in onedrive folder in file explorer. My idea is that why can't we access shared folders in onedrive folder in file explorer.

  8. password protection

    There's a four digit password on my OneDrive app that secured access to my personal files. But I just came across the online album option in Photos that doesn't require the password to access my OneDrive photos folder by folder. That kills the privacy. Also, the password on OneDrive stays on Windows Phone app. Written synced with laptop, there's no password there. My files are free to view. No logout either. Please fix asap. Privacy is always the top concern.

  11. O APP poderia exibir a lista dos arquivos, com uma barra de progresso indicando o status de cada arquivo sincronizado ou a sincronizar.

    O APP poderia ter uma tela mais amigável, exibindo a lista dos arquivos, com uma barra de progresso indicando o status de cada arquivo sincronizado ou a sincronizar, com um hint exibindo o caminho completo do arquivo. Simples assim.

  12. No change made, but in order to sync it again you need to máke a change and login again

    Fixing the Problem, when you just open a Document and close it again, that you need to make a Chance in order for Onedrive to sync the file again. The there's a Pop up wich asks to log inb again and then the Problem is fixd for the one file but happens again with the natx one.

  13. Organisation/Company Files

    Overview:
    OneDrive for Business should provide folders which are associated with the 'Organisation/Company' rather than individual users.

    Detailed Background and Explanation:
    1TB storage per user is great, but for many small businesses, shared files are more important than personal ones. Microsoft's focus on giving each OneDrive for business user 1TB of ‘personal’ space is bizarre.

    We are a small company with 4 members of staff, 3 of whom work from their own laptops.

    We are an architectural practice and it is necessary for everyone to have access to every project. We have a job folder for each of our 700+…

  14. Make the Word program run more smoothly

    The auto save function on it is useful, however it gets in the way as it currently is. It will save while I am in the middle of typing a sentence, causing me some frustration as the program will not run during saving. It will, however, buffer my keystrokes, and I will often type something two or three times during the saving period, thinking the program is not working. I therefore suggest that the buffering during the saving process is removed and that auto saving occurs when typing is idle for five seconds or longer, causing less interruptions to people's…

  15. We need manual synch.

    My colleagues sharing my folder can not see my updates immediately. We need manual synch option on individual file or folder. (I recall DropBox provides this feature.)

  16. Speed up synchronisation

    I always have to wait for a long time (several minutes) until the files that have been previously uploaded from my desktop computer at home to one drive are synched onto my surface, even if the files are only small .docx with a couple of kB. This can be annoying when you do not have WiFi coverage everywhere at your work place. You depend and rely on having some files and then you end up not having them on your hard drive due to a delayed snch process.

  18. Allow renaming of files while editing, especially online

    Currently, if others are editing the file you can't rename it, and it's harder to do Offline than online. Other competing solutions (Starts with G) allow you to rename a document while editing it online, which is super useful.
    Alternatively, add a way to all out of a document so you can rename the file.

  19. Fix sync status icons issue

    As requested by forum moderator, I post this one here: In Windows Explorer, the sync status icons are gone when too many other applications use shell integration (e.g. TortoiseGit/SVN, Dropbox, OwnCloud, etc.) due to the limitation to a maximum of 15 shell icons. For a more detailled description, see http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/forum/odoptions-oddesktop/onedrive-sync-status-icons-gone-on-windows-10/e67c271a-6ee8-409f-b6c7-194037e25a41
