  2. 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

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Apply "Sort By" default in OneDrive Subfolders

    Choose "Sort By" default in OneDrive

    So, in pictures the default sort is by date and I have a lot of folders and subfolders that I have to change manually. So when will I be able to change the default option or at least being able to apply the sort order to all subfolders? Currently I have to go to each folder and choose how I want to sort the contents but would like to set a default (for example name ascending) and it will always show files within each folder in the same way.
    I realize this is similar…

  14. Files Currently Syncing

    I would like to see which files are actively syncing. So when there is a trouble with syncing, I can try to troubleshoot the specific files.

    Facility for locking and unlocking the OneDrive folded shall be provided through mobile authenticator app.
    Some times it required to give access to my window PC to my friends and for this I required this facility so that no one can access my files in OneDrive folder.

  16. Desyncing a subfolder inside a Syncing folder

    A way in which we could specify OneDrive in a way so as not to upload and sync a specific subfolder in a folder which is being synced.
    For example, there’s a folder named A and inside of it there are folders named B and C. We are by default syncing all of them but we don’t want to sync folder C anymore. It would be great to have an option to stop syncing folder C, without it getting deleted from the local hard drive.

  19. Change Location Path name for OneDrive

    I need to rename or change the Location path name for my OneDrive for business. This consumes part of the Path limit for the 260 Characters.

    Example:

    Original path name: C:\Users\User profile\OneDrive - ODB Name

    Rename path name: C:\Users\User profile\ODB Name

    Please add Multiple desktop bakckup mode. I do n’t want the content of the company ’s computer desktop to appear on my home computer desktop. Now I can only cancel the files one by one without displaying it. This is too much trouble.
    And many shortcuts and icons are invalid.
