  2. One Drive automatic synchronization at one drive map

    I frequently have that one drive doesn't start automatically and because the icon of onedrive doesnt appear at background tasks I cannot start the sync manually. I suggest that you ad this option to the one drive map itself (in documents, where you also have other settings, but no this one), because now you have to reinstall onedrive because there is no other option to force it to start. Thus an option to force it to start or a sync option in the map itself would be nice

  5. Allow use of ondrive photos for desktop background

    My photos app is always up to date with content from my phone, but I cannot set any of those as a desktop background. This is really dumb

  6. Improved syncing mechanism when meeting large amounts of files

    When uploading large amounts of files (in my case, 4000 pictures) on one device, other devices spend a loooooooooooooooong time just to update the file catalog. The same thing happens when changing the directory of files, etc. Onedrive seems to process the changes forever.

  11. Fix OneDrive without Annoying PowerPoint Link Pop Ups

    Allow ability to universally change PowerPoint hyperlinks (both internal links to other slides AND external) in order to prevent annoying popups indicating something to the effect "Warning: files on web may contain viruses. Do you want to continue?" This happens with EVERY LINK and would be horrible in any presentation

  12. ********

    Forced update of an hour, and now all of my ******* files are going to one drive. I did not ask for this, or agree to it.

    It has ****** my day up, and I had no time for this. I can't figure out how to REMOVE THIS OPTION. WHY IS IT NOT AN OBVIOUS CHOICE.

  13. remove the false claims about Autosave compatability with windows Vista.

    Make the Auto Save options function so that checking a box does not clear when one OK's out of the screen. I can only assume that the in-application feedback also does not actually function. Woorks fine in Win 10 Pro and only half an app in Vista.

  15. Use more specific language for OneDrive

    Microsoft uses "OneDrive" to refer to both storage in the cloud and storage on your local PC. For example if you choose to no longer sync a folder, the warning reads something like "This folder will remain on OneDrive but will be hidden from File Explorer. Files in that folder will be deleted from your PC".

    Well that is really confusing since OneDrive is a folder on my local PC and it's my storage in the cloud. Warning should read: "This folder and its contents will remain on the OneDrive cloud but will be will be deleted from your PC.…

  16. Ask me before even activating this! I refuse to use OneDrive simply because you screwed me before Microsoft on storage before.

    I just refuse to OneDrive at all anymore period. I used it at first when you asked and said people would get 50gb or whatever it was. Guess what, I used it then was forced to move things off. Guess what I sat on that forever until I guess you just deleted my files. I won't log on to OneDrive to even look, that's how much it annoyed me.

  20. Stop forcing OneDrive on Windows 10 users.

    Stop forcing OneDrive on Windows 10 users. Its really agitating me. Especially since the location for pictures and documents on the 'This PC' window in File Explorer was changed to the OneDrive folder. Like Microsoft, Windows 10 is a significant improvement over the previous Windows versions. Stop ruining my user experience with attempting to force me into using OneDrive .
