Favorite folders and files
Can you add a feature to add favourite folders or files for quick access. Not like the recent folder. Like a list of bookmarks that never changes.
We’re working on a feature to flag folders and files to access later. This feature will be for commercial accounts (business) initially.

Thanks Matthias, I agree fully a clickable windows explorer style hierarchy tree would really sell One Drive to me. Currently I see One Drive's potential, but the lack of this feature holds me back from using it. Also - just looking at Dropbox - this has a prettier front page, is more intuitive and more navigable
In onedrive.live.com, on the left of the screen where it has Files, Recent Docs, Photos, Shared there should be an option to drag onedrive folders onto that panel to link to them
Need a kind of collection, having categories and within that links to actual files and folders.
On web interface allow creating bookmarks or favorites against certain files/folder for quick navigation to it. Sometime I have to navigate 5-10 times to reach a particular folder. This means 5-9 different page request.... and each time. I can't keep everything at the base folder.
Web interface would be much more usable in future while ppl will start putting TBs of data, a large chunk of which will only remain on Onedrive i.e. not synced to local copies. I fear that Many users will shift to Google once they get out something like free space.
I love the ability to pin files to my phone Start screen and would find this valuable in OneDrive as well.
No we need a real section for pinned/Favorite files and folders. Especially now that we enjoy so much storage

I like the idea to pin favorites.

I know I have applied this suggestion strictly to OneDrive.com, but realistically this feature should span all platforms. I normally bury my files in a cascade of complex folder structures, and getting to something may be reliable, but cumbersome. Any way to implement a custom 'Favorites' section? This section should be able to point to an entire folder, or a document. Potentially, if you want a leg up on the competition, I would go a step further and set up 'Collections' so that you can add a group of things together for your own easy reference or for sharing, so that you don't have to keep everything to share at once in one location.
In short, favorites / collections across all platforms, please!
The modern-UI influenced File Explorer looks very simplistic and is good if you are on a touchscreen. It would be awesome if the online File Explorer would include similarities to the Windows Explorer with a structured folder layout on the left where you can pin favourites and fastly switch back two folders/create new folders.
