Enable customisable slideshow speed on onedrive.com
The only way to see photos full screen on onedrive.com is to use the slideshow. But this automatically scrolls through the photos way too quickly.
Please add a customisable speed, preferably with a manual option that only scrolls to the next photo with a key press.
(Being able to view a photo full screen without using slideshow would also help)
Wanted to provide an update here. While this is something we want to do, we are not working on it for the immediate future. When this is in current plans, we will update the status here.
Seriously MicroSoft? There would be a lot more votes if the voting wasn't closed. Forcing Office 365 customers to use other software. Nice. Perhaps your software developers use the competitions product? Once more people use other document software perhaps you might wake up and listen.
Guess it's time to close acct and go to google.
Absolutely terrible that nothing is being done about this after so long. The slideshow feature is completely unusable given the super short duration between images.
The response is just arrogant and only serves to further frustrate and alienate customers. Honestly its really pathetic
With voting turned off the true desire of the community can't be monitored. The idea that this option would not be usable and then provide no effort, is not serving the users of OneDrive. my folder with many pictures when shared with family for their enjoyment, can't be as simple as slide show on line, not requiring downloading (which many of my family members have no idea how or ability to do). If there was nothing more than a "throttle down" to say every 5 seconds, it would be so much more usable than it is now. Please put effort into this need. Thank You.
There may not be 500 votes here, but perhaps that is because a slideshow that never displays images properly is unlikely to get any attention from users. This functionality is not fit for purpose - it would be better to have no slideshow at all than this effort.

Oh for God's sake Microsoft, just fix this already. How can this not be something you would want to have work properly? As it is, it's utterly useless. I think I'm going to have to go back to Google photos.
It is now 2020. Slideshow moves quickly and does not allow image to fully download so the image is blurry. This is an easy fix and would make the slideshow usable.

Echo the same thing. Please accept it.
Due to the too fast sequence in the slideshow, high-resolution photos are only displayed blurred. Next would be in the slideshow a dark background (the best would be black as a background) for the presentation of the photos cheaper.
I also would like to see both a pause, and speed setting, available for the slideshow function.
Also, the Vote button would not operate, so I could not add my vote to this request
This is still a thing we're waiting for... please, do it!
It is now summer 2019 and still waiting for Pause function using using the Slideshow feature in Onedrive. Please provide an adjustable speed function. Just look at the design you have for 3 speeds implemented in Microsoft Pictures as part of Windows 10, when you 'Right Click' and have the possibility to select 'Fast, Medium og Slow speed', and 'Pause' with 'Space'
Go back to the top you, we need this definitely

Four years since first request for either a pause key or button or ability to change slide time for the slideshow. Someone should be able to do this very quickly even in a giant organization like MicroSoft.
Please, I really would like to recommend OneDrive to friends but this is too inconvenient.
Wow, been requested since years, still not there
What are you waiting to add time control for the slideshow ?
you dont necessarily need this feature. however, a delay time of more than half a second would be nice. doesnt take a rocket scientist to realize this .
By the way: when I wrote to Omar, I told him that, to me, a Pause button was even more important than being able to set a speed setting. But I noted that probably every other slideshow application has either one or the other, and usually both.
I wrote to the current OneDrive product manager, Omar Shahine, pointing him to this thread. Here is what he wrote back:
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I sent this to the right set of folks in the team to update.
We generally try to maintain a reasonable contract with respect to how we run and manage user voice. I agree that an item like this warrants more frequent updates than once in 2 years.
Our approach is to use a few categories across all UV items to be transparent with the item such as “thinking about it” or “working on it” – these are meant to indicate if something is “on the backlog” or “in engineering” – in general when we flip to “working on it” you can expect that the item should be delivered in a quarter or two.
For this item, it probably was on the backlog for some time, but other priorities resulted in this not getting funded and we never went back and updates the status. Doesn’t mean we won’t do it, but it is a reflection that the place we track our work isn’t always in sync with User Voice.
With respect to management of the product, OneDrive has about 40 product managers that work on it. Over the past 8 or so years I have lead portions of the team along with Doug and others – in general the leadership has not changed much, but we’ve had different roles across the product in that time. Managing User Voice is a federated effort but we generally only have a few personalities that are public on UV to keep things simple.
The team looks at all the UV requests on a regular bases (at least all new ones) but due to volume really just focuses on those with over 500 votes.
Thinking and thinking and thinking... OMG
You want everybody to go somewhere out from your services?
I myself asked couple of years ago just couple of small basic things:
1. Full screen option with user change/ couple of speeds
2. Black background (or user change)
How hard can these simple things be for Microsoft?
