  1. Provide a verbose mode for seeing what OneDrive is processing during a sync. It appears hung up, but I'm guessing it is actually working.

    Often we change things on our SharePoint which results in the OneDrive sync getting into a lot of activity on the desktop. In this cases, typically OneDrive just says "Processing changes" and provides no insight into what, if anything, is actually happening. This results in users rebooting their machines, which stops the services and actually could be creating more problems.
    Providing at least a verbose mode that could provide more insight into what's happening when needed could help get through these situations.

  2. Disable automatic Windows Explorer opening at login or quit

    Please make OneDrive in such way that will not pop up Windows Explorer when login or when user it's quitting OneDrive.

    Or put a option in OneDrive and allow user to choose expected behavior when open/close onedrive.

  3. Synchronize and backup automatic

    I hope OneDrive can backup other folders besides documents, for example the folder in Data: D also synchronizes automatically like Google Dr

  7. Sync data from different devices without

    Sync data from different devices without,
    As I use different devices to use OneDrive, but whenever I sync my files it merges all the files from "Desktop, Documents & Pictures" folder into one, making it confusing which file is from which computer.

    Please improve this functionality or add this feature so that we can organise our data in a much better way.

  10. Add File-On-Demand Feature on Windows 8.1 OneDrive for Business app

    Add File-On-Demand Feature on Windows 8.1 OneDrive for Business app.
    The native Windows 8.1's OneDrive App is very buggy and the user can not add business account to it

  12. Process priority into admx

    Could you please add process priority option into admx, setting onedrive process to low really help to make computer responsive again and stop crashing without increasing the sync time.

    When OneDrive finds a file name that needs to be renamed, show the file name and when I click on file name either open in in Explorer for me to rename or allow me to rename there.

    OneDrive is kicking on a file and when I click let OneDrive rename (something I should never have to do) it fails.

  15. Be able to rearrange Folders in what ever order you want

    I had a user ask if they could rearrange the folders in what ever order they wanted because they might access a certain folder more than other folders, and it seems to default to sorting them alphabetically. You can rearrange files but not folders. Seems like an oversight.

  16. Desktop Files

    Thanks for the app. It's been a great option for storing my files across multiple devices.

    Would love if the files on my desktop could display showing the first page of each file (eg, File A, a book, displays the cover of that book - as it used to be until several weeks ago), rather than displaying the bland red and white 'pdf'.

    Thanks.

  18. Use the new input model for share dialogs

    The web based share dialog that appears when you select the share option in the context menu uses the old compatibility input model. By simply adding the app's executable file name as a DWORD to 'Computer\HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURENINPUTLEGACYMODE' with a value of 0 it enables a far better touch screen experience when working with text and when scrolling. This is an easy fix and has existed for years. I think it would make the experience far better for touch screen users.

  19. There are no options for stop syncing in OneDrive now it kept adding folders to my desktop and is really annoying!!!

    There are no options to stop syncing files, there are only options for pause syncing and One Drive is adding screenshots to File Explorer and taking up my disk space.
