Same problem. I have to show photos extensively in my position as a fiber optics instructor for the U.S. Navy. I have to MOVE ALL PHOTOS from the OneDrive folder to make them hard and fast in my "true" Pictures folder so I can see thumbnails. I HATE when I forget and allow pictures to be saved to the default OneDrive folder then have to go back and MOVE them so I can find the picture I'm looking for using the thumbnails AS THEY ARE INTENDED TO BE USED! I'm about ready to disable OneDrive entirely to avoid all the extra steps I need to take, AND which results in MULTIPLE COPIES of entire folder structures in TWO SEPARATE LOCATIONS on my laptop, which SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASES THE HARD DRIVE SPACE REQUIRED TO DO MY JOB!!!
