  1. Sharing a folder to mail address, is not sending automatically the link to this mail! You have to send the links by mail manually!

    It is not an idea. Is a bug report.
    The link workaround is confusing and counterproductive. You have to copy-paste the link to your mail account and send the mail from there!!
    How is possible?

  3. Option to change language with one keystroke (e.g. Right Alt)

    That way you will not fail to change language, as it happens often when is needed a two key combination (e.g. Alt-Shift)

  4. choose video thumbnail

    I have uploaded a video on onedrive and it automatically selects an image from the video for the thumbnail image. Why can´t I choose the image to use as the thumbnail?

  6. 'Largest files in your OneDrive' page does not work well.

    That page does not seem to enable sorting from largest to smallest, and contains many very small files, which appear before much larger files. It should sort from largest to smallest by default, or at least allow the user to sort.

  7. Add a Mirror Feature between OneDrive and Sharepoint

    The ability to have folders (and subfolders) in OneDrive to be mirrored in Sharepoint.

    Example, I have a Clients folder in OneDrive that I routinely add new subfolders and files too. I would like my team to have access to an exact copy in Sharepoint.

    There is currently not the ability to add a flow like this through Power Automate.

  8. Re-enable search of file contents

    Searching the file contents used to work. Now, search does not search inside files, severely hampering the usefulness of onedrive as a long term archive.

  11. Create shortcut files on your cloud from files that were shared with you

    Say someone shares a word file with me. I should have the option to create my own word file in my onedrive cloud that is either a shortcut to the shared file, or it automatically syncs with the shared file

  12. Recycle Bin view folder structure

    Viewing the Recycle Bin as a folder structure instead of 10,000 individual files would be very helpful when trying to restore individual folders full of content.

  13. Moving files between OSs

    It is very hard to move a file or photos Onedrive to either the Windows or Android. When you figure it out, it downloads it to an obscure folder. I want the ability to drag/drop as with any folder or to move or save the file, in the normal way, in the case of Android.

  20. In Photos > Places, Let the Display Show Long Place Names

    When browsing Photo > Places, the tiles will attempt to display city and state. However, if the place name is long, the display will drop anything but state.

    Please revisit the display logic for tiles on this page so that full info is displayed more often.
