How can we improve the OneDrive web experiences?

Enable customisable slideshow speed on

The only way to see photos full screen on 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)

    PLEASE add customisable speed... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At the moment it is useless!

    MS doesn't understand or care what people want in the 21st century. Their products are barely improved from their heyday in the 90s. But they did plop all of the buttons into a jumbled mess on the Office software so I guess they are making changes (that literally nobody ever asked for or wanted.) They are the Oldsmobile of the tech world.

    It is very difficult to use this as an actual slideshow without having control over the speed. The pictures speed past, and you aren't able to see them very well much lest describe what's in the picture to others. Either allow for manual interrupt, or add customized timing controls to solve the problem.

    Slideshow is too fast for poor Internet connexion, and even when fast enough, to quick to take time to see the picture.
    Really need a simple way to select the speed, even if selected by the person who share the picture.

    I love how onedrive automatically backs up the photos from multiple phones or devices and I've been looking for a good way to do slideshows with it but the transition speed NEEDS FIXING.

    Even some VERY simple options like speed, fade, etc. would be welcome.

    Come on Microsoft, get it together. Please!

    I know this isn't the solution everyone is looking for but one clever little trick I came up with to get around this is to just go full screen view then start a screen recording session. Then that way you can go at your own pace. Granted you won't have a perfect timer set for each photo but you could edit that in your movie clip during editing.

    Are saying to date 7/22/2016 nobody has addressed this issue? Or is there a way to adjust the speed now?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate functionality is really really poor for slideshowing. Speed is not adjustable. We are in 2016 with a brand new laptopt, new CPU, paid a lot of money and have same if not worst performance than Win 95!

    This is very disappointing...This has been mentioned since 2014 and still there is no fix??? Come on Microsoft listen to your user groups!

    EVERYBODY: For a temporary fix for now, open a photo, and just go full screen in the browser (F11) and you can manually scroll through photos as if it was in slideshow. Cheers

    OneDrive slide show is so fast that it can't be used. This can't be that hard a technical fix. OneDrive is convenient for storage, worthless for sharing with friends who want to look at our photos.

    The onedrive slideshow is borderline unusable to show pictures to others - it's the only way to see picture fullscreen without a half-transparent bar obscuring the bottom half of the picture.

    Unfortunately, the slideshow scrolls way too quickly to move through pictures and tell a story, and the speed cannot be adjusted.

    Typically viewers should stop the automatic slide when user input (arrow keys) interrupt the flow and allow manual control. This would be my preferred fix for this UX issues.
