  4. Subfolders in photo album

    When creating an album from folder, it does not include any subfolder.
    The albums should take them instead of adding all pictures in subfolders manually.
    Also, doing that manually, would be much easier to just drag the subfolder and drop inside the album, and not having to open each subfolder, selecting pictures, etc.

  6. Ability to pin the OneDrive status window

    Currently, the OneDrive client disappears as soon as you click off of it. It would be nice to have the ability to pin it so it stays open. There are times I prefer to watch which files, if any, are being synced.

  8. Develop a feature that allows user to back up selected files only. OneDrive backs up working files. its very annoying to see OneDrive start

    make this easy for users PLEASE! Otherwise will find a cloud that lets me decide what files I save.

  10. Allow to sync shorcuts or not

    Simply just allow to right click and toggle sync shortcut or not, while seems very simple we must add this feature just the sake of broken icons in other computers.
    For myself I find this very annoying.

  11. Agregar Comando actualizar al menu de One Drive PC

    Deberían colocar un comando para poder actualizar los datos de la nube en forma manual, esto es porque pongo la info en la nube y no descarga automaticamente esta a la PC, tengo que esperar, la sincronizacion no es automatica.

  13. Sugestão

    Olá. O OneDrive para Windows deveria permitir a escolha das pastas que quero sincronizar. Teria que ter uma opção para eu navegar no computdor, navegar nas pastas e subpastas para eu conseguir ir selecionando as pastas que quero sincronizar. Além de permitir que eu escolha uma pasta compartilhada na rede como \\192.168.0.1\compartilhamento. Dou esta sugestão porque o Google Drive para computador oferece este recurso e eu acho super interessante.

  15. Facility for locking the OneDrive folded shall be provided through mobile authenticator app.

    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. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

    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.

  20. 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.
