Implement a folder tree like Google Drive. It would make navigating and moving files around much easier.
I'm surprised this isn't already a feature. Clicking through folder labels to get to where I want to go is irritating. It'd be much better to expand a folder tree and go right where I need to. We need a navigation pane for a more friendly UI experience.
Thanks for all the feedback on this item. Its one the team hears and we are continuing to track this as part of our future roadmap. Please continue to share your thoughts and ideas here!
the last three years i had p-c again after 20 years for my studies i follow a way of road or a tree my steps more than 10 ours spending to learn and joy home with my P/C ,my way....christos papavasiou.

Microsoft had this feature before but took it away due to consumer confusion.
I think the confusion is easy to get around.
Just use a cloud icon instead of a folder icon for items that are online only. For items that are both on the cloud and on the PC do a hybrid folder-cloud icon.
Please reimplement ASAP. Thanks!!

How can I do that folder tree structure?
Really?!?! Microsoft has known that this feature has convenience value since at least WINDOWS 3.1 http://muegge.com/images/blogimages/0018_screeshot002.png

It looks like this one has enough votes, don't you think? I mean if you check "Boom it's done" category, I don't see "too much" 1500+ votes. Folder structure is crucial, please add this into Ring 1 ;-)

better file copying/moving would improve things. why dont you have a choice of UIs for this? I use classic shell on windows 8/10 because i like the older style menu systems, having a choice of UI is the way to go
If onedrive wants to actually compete w/ GDrive, then a hierarchical folder structure is essential. I was pushing for O365 initially, but every feature that is added seems half cooked. This again is another perfect example. Google seems like a much better option for my school as o365 keeps adding more and more fluff but ignoring core functionality.

Yes, the web UX in particular just gets in the way of basic navigation. Windows for Work Groups was easier to navigate than OneDrive.
This would save a lot of time as I have a number of sub folders.
Chris Church commented
This would be so helpful and you already give this function when viewing OneDrive through Windows Explorer. Please add this!!!
Yes please do this. End users get lost so easily with this default navigation.

Navigating through a hierarchical file structure requires a tree. Hard to imagine why anyone would think otherwise.
Agree. File Management needs to be made easier, along with favourite folders/starred folders and colour coding of folders.
I think, that this idea should merger with one called "Allow shared folders to be stored within sub folders". Thus, I flagged it as inappropriate.
In other case votes would be distributed to different "baskets".
Why wasn't this available from the beginning. Microsoft do you even use your own products?

I agree completely with this suggestion. It's the most important improvement. (That's one of the few details, where GoogleDrive is better.)
I have to totally agree with this suggestion. I would change the leftmost menu (now reserved for ONEDRIVE>Files-Recent-Photos...) to display folder structure. Shortcuts for recent files, documents, photos and shared files could be placed elsewhere.
The online navigation is just useless. Period.
