How can we improve the OneDrive web experiences?

preview html files inside onedrive

Provide an option to view a basic HTML file preview, right inside the www.OneDrive.com .

Currently when I click a .html inside the onedrive, it gives me the code to edit. Instead of just code, provide an option to preview the basic HTML without any JS or CSS

    Olá Antonio,

    Bem-vindo ao suporte do OneDrive.

    Relativamente à sua questão relacionada com abertura de arquivos HTML dentro do OneDrive, informo que tal funcionalidade não é ainda suportada, mas está sendo considerada em futuras atualizações. Poderá votar no pedido da funcionalidade através do novo site de opiniões do OneDrive (Inglês).

    VAMOS ,VAMOS ,VAMOS .........GO AHEAD

    it should open html files in a browser - ridiculous it doesn't

    This just so wrong. Why does Microsoft One Drive have to be so difficult and painful to use. Seriously. Open HTML in a browser.

    Can't believe that this needs to be a feature request. Until this feature is available, dropbox continues to be my goto.

    Obviously there is no technical difficulty in interpreting an .htm/.html file, there is only the misinterpretation of what is "View" this file type. So what are still waiting for to change this behavior?

  • João commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Menu options "View" and "Open in the Text Editor" has the same effect and this is obviously wrong. The "View" should interpret the file, as it is done with .PDF, .XLSX or .DOCX.

    Também apoio a sugestão. Publico planilhas no formato .htm para visualização mas são exibidos o código e não a interpretação visual.

    O mesmo não ocorre com arquivos .PDF, .DOC ou .XLS, que também possuem códigos mas são INTERPRETADOS e exibidos.

    I'm glad I'm not alone in this. It baffles me that "opening" an HTML file in OneDrive just displays script. Maybe it's time to move to S3....

    I would also like to see this — are you guys still "thinking about it"?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I found that if you either : Copy link to a new tab or Download I can view it - but it is not intuitive. Even if the button said... DOWNLOAD to PREVIEW..... would help.

    When can we see HTML file ?, not possible that in 2018 microsoft does not provide this feature

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I have no idea how a cloud based storage system could not allow html file to open in a browser. It baffles me that this would not be doable!

  • Peter Mead. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Challenge here is that html filewould need to add associated css file and any other embedded html files within the html to at times be useful. Would be a useful feature yes, but can see that there will need to be some limitations.

    Still unable to view HTML from OneDrive. Boo to Admin response.

    Also provide a view only link that open as a web page and editable as an html file
