  1. Would like to see ability to search single folder only and also ability to show properties of files and folders similar to file explorer

    Would like to see ability to search single folder rather than "Search everything" or at least the ability to filter results by folder, file type etc.. Also ability to show properties of files and folders similar to file explorer.

  2. Find and compare duplicate files across OneDrive platforms

    This feature will enable users to find and compare duplicate files in their OneDrive. They can also delete the duplicate in order to free up space.

  4. Automatic file sharing with all family members

    OneDrive needs a space where anything put in that space is automatically shared to the whole family. This would be included with a Microsoft 365 Family subscription. It should not be limited to one terabyte.

  5. Organize shortcuts in folders of My files

    Hello team,
    I've been suggested to add shortcuts of the shared folder or file to My Files.
    Now I can see this feature is available.

    But, I can not organize the shortcuts to the structured folders. If all the shortcuts were only stored in the root of My files, then the root folder of My files will be very messive.

    So, I hope you can enable that when I add the shortcut of folder or file which shared from others to My files, I can organize the shortcut to my subfolders.

    If I only can add the shortcut to the…

  7. "Note-to-Self" tab

    I suggest a "Note-to-Self" feature, so a person can have a place to write short notes about the organization of the OneDrive folders.
    ~example: note-to-self- place new client files /directory
    ~example: note-to-self- place funny snaps /directory
    it would be a great help,

    Thankyou Microsoft

  8. path

    I wish I can go directly to a specific folder in cloud drive.
    Since OneDrive on my PC map to cloud
    e.g. my local folder is C:\OneDrive\
    I have a folder e.g. C:\OneDrive\Photos\2021\JAN\15
    Then I wish I can type \Photos\2021\JAN\15 in web and go directly to "15" folder.

  11. File Location in Details for Search Results

    When I search for files I am unable to determine where the file is located. That information is not provided in the file details or any list visible on the search results page. This makes it very difficult to figure out where the file is for the sake of moving it.

  12. The ability to exclude individual files or folders from automatic sync

    I'd like the ability to mark or flag individual files or folders to be excluded from OneDrive Sync. There are some shortcuts on my desktop for installed applications that get synced to all devices through known folder redirection, I'd like the ability to right click those files and choose not to sync them with my OneDrive account.

  13. Video player with playback speed and caption

    I wish the OneDrive web version would be able to play videos with setting for different playback speed ratio or maybe auto-generating caption, or even more add quality setting too

  14. Move folders shared with me inside of my drive

    Shared files can be imported to my own one drive but not moved without loosing the link to the share. In addition it should be possible to move this shared folder inside of my own one drive folder. Otherwise the top level of my folder is full of shared folders but I want to order and organize them as I like. Maybe similar to "add to One Drive" in one drive for business?https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/blog/2020/07/01/introducing-new-onedrive-features-to-share-and-collaborate-across-work-and-life/

  17. Office 2019 Pro

    Please don't force the system to open and save all Office's programs on OneDrive. After installing Office 2019, that is all I can do. I also use Solidworks, which doesn't access OneDrive so easily to open Excel, for working with and storing Tables. I would love to learn how to stop using OneDrive with Office and only do it when I need a file posted on the Web.

  18. Add file expiration for all sharing types.

    It would make a lot of sense to add this security feature to the more restrictive OneDrive sharing types, instead of being forced to enable "share with all" links in an organization, as this option is often disabled specifically for security concerns.
