  1. have a popup window on the corner of the screen at the system tray

    hi, so idea:

    when youre uploading or downloading via your drive, have a little popup square at the bottom right corner of the screen, above the system tray (similar to the one that pops up when youre running an Avast system scan, it tracks the progress of what's been completed)

    that way you can see some sort of loading bar while your process completes, as opposed to having to click the icon to see what's remaining. so instead of it just going away when you click off the syncing update popup, allow it to remain on top of windows: have…

  2. #1 FIX STATUS

    You should show Online or Off and actual Sync status.
    a. Use colors: Green-online, Blue-Syncing, Yellow-paused, Red-offline b. Use words; Sync Done, Syncing nn Files, Sync Paused, Offline
    c. Use both

    Your current "Amazon Drive - Syncing" is useless since it doesn't
    give any info whether sync is actually ongoing or finished.

  4. Allow OneDrive and Cortana to be disabled or removed.

    I don't use them and don't like not being able to delete them from my computer. OneDrive has pop up boxes asking me to set up an account every time I start a program. I disable it but it pops up again when I start another program. It gets in the way. I haven't had any issues with Cortana popping up but I just don't want it on my system. I would like to be able to use a camera or mic without worrying that it will activate Cortana.

  5. Do something to fix the problem with "Processing Changes" problem, there has to be an easy fix that works.

    The problem is persistent and nothing seams to fix the problem. Surely there must be an easy fix the the coders can come up with. Please fix this problem before you lose a long time (before SkyDrive) user.

  7. Stop forcing one drive on people. It constantly launches whenever I open a file explorer or PDF. When I close a program I want it dead.

    Stop forcing one drive on people. It constantly launches whenever I open a file explorer or PDF. When I close a program I expect it to stay closed until I call upon it again. I do NOT want it to automatically start up.

  8. Más información

    Que cuando esté en estado, "procesando cambios", muestre en el menú contextual que aparece al hacer clic sobre el icono de la barra de tareas, la lista de cambios en los que está trabajando, de la misma forma que lo hace, cuando está descargando o subiendo archivos.

  10. I swear I have disabled OneDrive on all of my computers at least a dozen times now but it keeps coming back. Go away forever.

    I don't want bloatware with my computer, and I especially don't want it to keep coming back after I've already uninstalled. It's even more annoying when I'm prompted every couple days to sign into an app I never wanted in the first place, and further more annoying when I find that one of my computers was syncing files to OneDrive without my explicit consent. I honestly like Microsoft as a company, but my frustration with OneDrive's underhanded installation practices mean I will never use it voluntarily.

  11. A file must be uploaded on onedrive only when it is closed

    I have *.pptx files in my OneDrive folder. When I work on editing the file for a long time and save in-between, there comes a message that the file is read only and cannot be saved. Then I need to use "Save-as" and save the file at some other location in computer. Later on replacing the old file version from the OneDrive folder with newly saved file.

    I think, it comes read only as OneDrive keeps on uploading the edited version of file on continuous basis. Especially, I have seen this when I press save button and in the bottom…

  12. Turn of default syncing!

    You really need to turn ouf default syncing! I never even activated Onedrive on my new laptop and still it has synced 8 GB! When my data allowance disappeared I started looking into where it had gone, and it turned out Onedrive was the quilty culprit. I never even activated it, but it still synced all my pictures. To where I have no idea, when I start the app from the notification area it's not even logged in. Which means that I cant even reach the settings to unsync the frigging folders that Onedrive has decided to sync all by…

    If the name is too long, it is impossible to read it. Let the name scroll on the screen

  19. Reassess the possibility to ignore or exclude selected OneDrive folders and files from the sync process.

    It would be great to be able to ignore or exclude selected files and folders within the OneDrive folder from syncing. It has been requested a few times before and solves user problems in a variety of areas: from software developers having problems with temporary build files and node_modules folders, through users who want to ignore sync problems (or issues like waiting days for a file to upload on a slow connection) by ignoring files in sync, to users who want to ignore files and folders created by applications, especially photo applications. There are many use cases where this feature…

    At Ignite, we announced a new setting that will allow admins to exclude new files based on file name pattern or file extension. These files will have a new “excluded” icon. Announcement here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-onedrive-blog/celebrating-the-top-onedrive-moments-from-microsoft-ignite-2020/ba-p/1679821. This feature will be rolling out later this year and we are thinking of expanding it to folders after that.
