  1. Go back to original Word and Excel

    Because when you type in Word and then print nothing ever lines up. Also trying to move files around is a nightmare and trying upload too! One drive is the worst invention.

  3. Enable the possibilty to stop syncing a specific file

    In places of bad internet connection or some circumstances, synchronizing large files seem to block synchronizing of files added later to the queue. Here, it'd be nice to let the user stop syncing specific files.

  4. Automatic shutdown after finishing synchronizations

    Add a button to schedule the shutdown of the machine after finishing synchronization, and also after finishing only Downloads or Uploads, currently I make a forecast for the rest not synchronized with my connection speed to put a shutdown -t, a button that would trigger the shutdown on end of synchronization would be much more practical and accurate.

  5. Dictionary

    If it isn't already possible, I think the option to download different dictionaries (ie. Greek/Norse Mythology), would be swell.

  7. You should try again by completely rebuilding from scratch. OneDrive behaves like ransomware on my computer.

    Make a functional storage solution that doesn't hold files ******* or behave in odd and unpredictable ways when one has multiple microsoft accounts.

  9. Fix creating new folder

    Fix the fact that when you create a new directory on a pc ... getting a "new folder" it's practically impossible to rename it. One drive starts immediately syncing and whatever you type gets replaced, refreshed, select all happens... in any case impossible to use. The only way around is to create a folder on the pc locally, then rename it, and then only put it on onedrive.

  10. Please fix the Stored Log in for OneDrive on Windows10 Pro!

    The One Drive no linger stores my log in / stays connected even with me checking the "Stay Logged In [ ] EVERY TIME! on Multiple Win 10 Pro Computers!

    Also it would be nice to have a way to delete the stored email SHARING addresses one at a time. I have several with typos and they show up as multiple choices. I would like to delete the bad ones when they pop up??

  13. OneDrive Backup should allow other personal folders to backup

    OneDrive Backup should allow other personal folders to backup. Now it allows only Documents, Pictures and Desktop. But if I have some other important folder that I like to backup regularly, there is no option available. This makes OneDrive backup incomplete.

  14. Recycle Bin Search Function

    hello

    how can it be that it is not possible to search the recycle bin ?

    the restore function is totally useless if I cannot search the recycle bin in an appropriate manner.

    I cannot browse through thoundands of deleted files by hand.

  15. A single OneDrive for all my platforms.

    Make OneDrive simpler to use, more intuitive. It's too complicated for non tech users. Simpler and more automated would equate to more users making better use of it. A single OneDrive interface for viewing and controlling all my platforms would maybe be a way forward - laptop, tablet, phone

  17. GPO to manage 'start onedrive automatically when i sign into windows' setting

    Can we please get a GPO to manage the option of:
    'start onedrive automatically when i sign into windows' and prevent users from being able to untick this option.
    Having OneDrive silently sign in is useless if the app does not auto start when a user logs into Windows.

  18. you hi-jacked my computer and I HATE ONE DRIVE - I NEVER WANTEF IT

    you need to automate BACKUP OF THE FILES YOU HI-JACKED, AND AUTOMATE REMOVAL OF THIS PROGRAM.-- JUST AS YOU AUTOMATED THE POP-UP I REPLIED "YES" TO IN A MOMENT OF LAPSED JUDGEMENT - AND ONE DRIVE JUST TOOK OVER, AND LOCKS UP MY COMPUTER DAILY.

  19. Synchronisatie verbeteren

    Als ik op een computer van mijn werk bestanden in mijn one drive plaats (Via de webbrowser) en deze vervolgens op mijn thuis pc wil openen dan lukt dat niet. De bestanden zijn dan in eerste instantie niet zichtbaar en als ik ze uiteindelijk heb gesynchroniseerd zijn ze niet leesbaar.

    Het zou fijn zijn als er een makkelijke procedure zou zijn om te synchroniseren.
    Bijvoorbeeld 1 knop waarmee je bestanden/mapen **** synchroniseren met elkaar. Eventueel dat je nog wel moet aangeven dat de oude bestanden worden overschreven door de nieuwere bestanden.

  20. Make it easy to determine what folders or areas of 1 drive are using the most space.

    It's difficult to determine which folders or areas of 1 drive are taking up the most space. Idea: make this easy.
