  1. Right-clicking on the OneDrive icon in tray should tell you how much space is used

    Right-clicking on the OneDrive icon in system tray should tell you how much space is used. It was very convenient with Google Drive (or was it Dropbox?)

    It's probably been suggested already, but couldn't find it with a quick search.

  5. Enable users to customize icons of synced folders (ger rid of annoying green check mark)

    I am using Windows 10 enterprise evaluation edition.
    Previously on windows 8.1, there was no green check mark on folders being synced by Onedrive, and there was a blue syncing mark only on folders not yet synced by Onedrive, which was acceptable.

    After upgrading to Windows 10, all icons of folders being synced by Onedrive has ANNOYING green check mark, and I couldn't find an option to manage this.

    I was able to get rid of them by deleting every onedrive-related key in below registry addresses:

    HKLM\Softwares\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers

    HKLM\Softwares\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers

    But after I remove those, Onedrive asks for a permission to install…

  8. This version of OneDrive for Windows 10 is a shit! A preffer the Windows 8.1 version, and this the one you might put into Windows 10.

    Here I can not have my files in my computer and download when I want it. Or I download everything at once, fulling my Hard Disk, or I don't download NOTHING for not occuping my HD. Horrible!

  10. In Windows 10, when you link a OneDrive account without having signed into Windows with a Microsoft account, you can't pause sync. Fix!

    Why can't you pause OneDrive sync in Windows 10 when you've signed in to OneDrive, but have not signed into Windows with a Microsoft account? Please fix this.

  11. Enable remote control of the remote PC via OneDrive connection.

    Enable remote control of a remote PC via OneDrive connection. This would allow a remote PC to be controlled without needing to establish an inbound network configuration/ports/etc, which can be an issue.

    Both parties need to be able to see what is occurring on the screen.

    My personal preference is to manage the remote PC from Windows and Android devices.

  12. Dynamic / Background Operation

    This will allow initial sync to run without using tremendous amounts of system resources.

  16. Start Onedrive manually on Windows 10

    I disabled Onedrive to start automatically on my Windows 10 PC. Every once in a while I want to sync my Onedrive with my PC but I have no idea how start Onedrive manually.

  17. how do you clear notifications?

    I had a notification that I had duplicate files and decided to stop including the folder in question but now the icon for OneDrive in the hidden items folder still has a big ugly red x on it which is strangely annoying. I also wish there was a way to delete duplicates in batches instead of one by one

  19. File Syncing problem on OneDrive for Windows10

    After upgrading to Windows10, my files are no longer synced on OneDrive... I get frequent message that some or other file needs my attention. Also, it has been syncing (uploading/downloading) files for last 2 days and does not complete this process irrespective how small the file size is.

    I liked the way OneDrive worked on Windows8.1 instead of 10.

  20. Use the fetch any file from PC feature to move a file from PC to onedrive (not copy it)

    Now, we can fetch any file from any PC using OneDrive and we can download those files or copy them to OneDrive. Actually, it would be better to be able to move those required files to OneDrive instead of copying them because it means that on the PC where the original file is, the same file will duplicate (locally and in the OneDrive folder) and that is something we want to avoid.
