Windows 10: What happened to my OneDrive? Solved

    What happened to my OneDrive?


    I got an email today from microsoft about all the "wonderful" changes they made to onedrive. I went online and looked at my cloud storage and am ticked (not the word I'm using in my head) that they changed everything so that it's filed by date (like google drive/photos) instead of by the files that I specifically uploaded. Yes, the files (folders) are still there somewhere, if I do a search. Not happy, I want to open onedrive and see my folders like I do on my desktop file explorer. Is there any way I can make it do that instead of showing stuff by date? When I'm out and about looking for a folder I may not know how to search for it, sometimes I have to scroll thru the folders and then I figure out which one it is I'm looking for. It's the main reason I stayed with onedrive (and pay now) instead of going to google photos and drive.

    Hello Andreah,

    While at OneDrive online, you should be able to click on the two buttons below to do this. The button to the right of sort lets you set to List, Tiles, or Photo view.

    Well gosh, I wish you could reach thru and slap me. I got worried for nothing. I went onto onedrive just now (by not clicking on THEIR link in the email I received) and it was the way I like it. And, never thought to look at sort. Ugh, it's been a long week. Sorry to bother you all!!!!!
