How can we improve the OneDrive web experiences?

folder color

It would be nice for the user to be able to assign different colors to individual folders to improve their readability. I guess this has probably been requested yet,n but I could not find any previous post dealing with that subject.

Thank you for the request. We understand the ask. At this point it’s not in our immediate plans. We will share more info as we have updates.

    Now my Onedrive folders are YELLOW! I have NO idea how the got that way nor do I have any way of changing them to another color!

    Microsoft has always been drab. I think it’s hurt the company to some extent. People like color in everything they do.

    Please add a way to change folder color. Coming over from Google Drive I was surprised to see this was not an option in OneDrive. I see you mention this is not in your immediate plans but I would imagine most users would greatly appreciate this feature becoming available sooner rather than later. Thank you

    Why is MS not responding? Tought they said they will respond to every everything if there are at least 500 votes?

    Folder colors are very useful. I use Google drive only because of the color or my business files.

    We have eight corporations that I maintain and all color coded...except when it comes to OneDrive, please get it so we can change colors on folders! Thank you!

    I need (not want) the coloured folder option in OneDrive. I need to organize and access to my files as quick as possible everytime I access OneDrive.

    This is a basic feature that should be implemented. Look at google interface compare to yours. Please!

    Definitely needed! This organizational tool missing is enough to make me go with Google Drive for storage needs.

    Colored folders may help. Are there better document management strategies? Where may they be found? What turnaround time may be expected by Microsoft teams?

    It would be a great feature if you were able to change the folder colors, even all the sub-folders, sub-sub-folders, and so on... Better organization I think if all your folders are separated by colors.

    OneDrive is already a great product for business but, this would add one additional feature that would be used and greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for starting the thread.
