  1. Add "cut" context menu on onedrive recycle items like on windows recycle bin.

    On recycle bin, ability to cut or more items to other folder should be given along with "restore". Also if file can be previewed or opened to see its content, that will be great.

  4. access computer files from onedrive mobile app

    If on your computer you have the onedrive client running, from the web version of one drive you can access your computer files which is very usefull, but from the mobile version of onedrive you can't do that and it would be REALLY usefull to be able to do that.

  6. How to pass along my digital inheritance to loved ones if I die (or disappear).

    I'm an author. Suppose I have all of my digital files for my books stored on OneDrive. This could include images for the book covers, all of my draft copies, publisher info, etc. If I were to die, I'd like my wife to have access to all of that. Now that we are moving to the cloud as a society, there needs to be a way for valuable data to be transferred to survivors.

    Here's how I see this working: I could fill out a form (when I activate this feature) that allows me to specify who should be notified…

  7. Add Script or Query to manage file

    Since in Windows 10 we don't have Placeholder, it would be better we can select file using script or query.
    For example, I have 200 files which have same prefix and want to a folder, I can only select it by clicking one by one.

  8. Allow the copying of folders on OneDrive.com

    For some reason the copying of folders is not an option on the web version of OneDrive. We are able to do it in the file explorer if the files are synced to our computer, so why can't we copy folders on the web version.

    I for one do not have all files synced to my computer. Afterall, that's part the point of having OneDrive storage no? Additional storage, and not just a backup service.

  9. modify behavior of dual log-in screen for Onedrive

    When I browse to OneDrive.com and click Sign-in, it opens a box asking for my email address and no password. I don't know why this window doesn't ask me for my password as well, because when I hit Next, it takes me to another page where it asks me for my email address again, with the password.

    The troublesome part is that the Form item in focus is the E-mail, and not the password. Which means I have to use the mouse pointer and click on the password field to shift the focus, and then enter the password with the…

  10. Edit EXIF information on Onedrive

    You can display the EXIF information stored in a picture on OneDrive.com, but you cannot edit them.

    It would be great to select some pictures and correct e.g. the exposure date or the GPS coodinates of the selected pictures at once.

  11. Provide a Datastore API like Dropbox does

    Dropbox provides a datastore API which allows anyone to use their free storage as a database. This is great for app developers as it means we can let a user sync data between two devices with the same user account without worrying about the size limits which roaming data imposes

    OneDrive should provide this same service. A simple datastore API which automatically handles locking and conflict resolution. A C# ORM could allow linq queries to be performed on the data, making integration very simple.

  12. Print to OneDrive

    I suggest a widely supported "Print to OneDrive" feature. The idea goes that you're on a webpage, you want a PDF of it (such as in the case of a receipt or transaction). You would use the new "Print to OneDrive" feature, which would create a PDF of the page, and save to a pre-specified location on your OneDrive space.

    It would personally save me loads of time, and take some unnecessary steps out of the way.

  19. send as attachment

    It would be nice if we can select files on OneDrive and send them as attachment instead of sharing the link..
    1) I want to be sure nothing else is shared.
    2) The file location or folder structure may change, in which case the link is useless.
    3) Don't need the other person to login to view the pictures

    Since you can save files from Outlook to onedrive the other way around should not be that difficult

    Thanks
