  1. Please change photo viewer background colour to dark gray.

    White background is very distracting. What was the rationale behind white bkg?

      • Allow Editing of File Information

        For example title/artist of MP3s so they're filed correctly within Groove Music. At the moment, you have to download the files and fix the information in Windows Explorer, which is counter productive.

            • Rotate photos from OneDrive Photos and Pictures folders from Mobile devices Android and IOS

              I can rotate photos from my computer Windows, but not able to do it from my phone (Android) or from Ipad (iOS). There are lots of blank time where I am not on the computer but I can manage the photos from my mobile devices. Please update such that this important function is available from OneDrive both Photos and Pictures folders.

              • Show which files/folders are not syncronized

                I have one folder under my OneDrive Symbol and checked to synchronize it with the cloud for backup. All files folders, even OneDrive Symbol shows the green dot. Now I want to cut the link to my notebook by unchecking the sub folder in the 'Sync your OneDrive files to this PC', but can't save and a failure message appear:
                'Sorry, your changes couldn't be save, some of the items you tried to stop syncing aren't in OneDrive yet. ...'
                Why can't stop syncing now? What OneDrive needs to

                • Add "cut" context menu on onedrive recycle items like on windows recycle bin.

                  On recycle bin, ability to cut or more items to other folder should be given along with "restore". Also if file can be previewed or opened to see its content, that will be great.

                  • Box.com like apps marketplace

                    There should be a marketplace, similar to that of box.com, so, that additional features could be supported optionally, without having to edit the onedrive.com core.

                    Like the SFTP access feature, WebDAV access features & etc...

                    • Refer to Local OneDrive and Cloud OneDrive. It helps to know we are not changing cloud data, when unsynced.

                      When manipulating and organizing data, it would be nice to know that we are working with local OneDrive copies or Cloud OneDrive copies, when files are not synchronized. This is especially true when checking back on progress...

                      • Add ability to convert video file formats at server level from quicktime to windows media conpatable format

                        Would relly like it if you built functnality into onedrive.com and the sync client to covert the video clip formats from the format used on iPhone and ipad to a format that can be read by windows media player so it can be edited in programs like Roxio creater next pro and others without loaoding quicktime on my computer since it is now known to have a security venerability for windows users since apple will no longer put out program updates for it and it would be best to have a solution for us windows users to help with theses…

                        • Let non-OneDrive users change language

                          Let users change language when viewing or editing a shared document - even if they do not have a Microsoft account.

                          I've had the mistake that a document gets shown in US English but I needed German. Since I logged in from a computer without a Microsoft account I couldn't change the regional settings and the Excel document was shown wrong (in US English format). Please make language choice available on all One Drive sites, especially when viewing or editing a document.

                            • Menu item order consistency across all platforms

                              The Windows 10 and Android apps menu list has this order:
                              Files, Photos, Recent, Shared, Offline, Notifications, Recycle bin

                              OneDrive.com menu list has this order:
                              Files, Recent, Photos, Shared, Recycle Bin

                              I suggest keeping the order consistent on all platforms. Therefore on OneDrive. com swap Recent and Photos, so Photos will come second and then Recent after.

                              Small consistency improvements like this makes OneDrive even better!

                                    • the ability to access upload and edit a file on a computer.

                                      if you could make it so we can access, edit, and send document to a computer or laptop that has onedrive installed on it. if you could do this it would be helpful because then we could send document to the computer directly through onedrive. I HOPE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THAT. Also, if you do do this can you make it FREE.

                                        When I was decreasing or cutting limit to 5GB warning I feel upset. I am 19 years user. As to not lose my files I'm must pay your price to upgrade or lose them. Or find another source of storage. I think that's a way to treat customers and Microsoft has plenty of money that they don't need to extort more.

                                        • Display/Hide OneNote shortcuts in OneDrive

                                          There must be an option to hide OneNote shortcuts from OneDrive folder. I don't want to see these shortcuts with my documents.
