    My opinion is it’s not over 'till it’s over. We are beta testing, there are still changes to be made. I wasn't unhappy with the change to OneDrive but what the heck, its beta time. What I was able to do is move/change things that were to my liking so that I could use/not use OneDrive.

    Let’s see what happens in the next build. Produce more feedback to MS on what you don’t want and praise the good. We have a chance to change something.

    Good thoughts!! I have to totally agree with these points.
    More feedback is the best way to get changes done. At least IMO.

    I did - OneDrive context menu in build 9879

    It is much less usable now compared to previous build (or 8.1). It is laborious to choose what folders you want to sync and impossible to select individual files to be online only or not.

    I did leave feedback of course :)

    Yes it does.

    On my W10 VM, I can provoke the auto-feedback by clicking on a feature/function multiple times, without doing anything else.
    It was a large number of clicks though (20+).

    If you have a MS account, you can try to submit feedback/ideas on the website.

    I only use OneDrive to play with, and Google Drive for that matter. Both are just just to slow and cause delays in booting.

    I currently have 8TB of WD MyCloud's for local and personal cloud storage.
    I can access them with any device from anywhere, and as NAS drives they don't slow my system down either.

    "One of my reasons for reinstalling Windows 10 was to get rid of One Drive and anything associated with it. I now have a local account, but I think this prevents me from making to comments to MS about the preview builds."

    You're right it does, but I just log into my Microsoft account to do the input and then log out when I'm done.

    If you try and input info it will ask you Do you want to log into you Microsoft account and give you a place to enter your password.

    On the MS forums, I saw people complaining that doing that changed their W10 from a local account to an online one.

    It certainly looked like that was what it was planning to do (when I tried it a few weeks ago) so I bailed.
    The title shown in that screenshot certainly implies that's what it will do.

    Hi

    It does change it from local to your Microsoft account but you can exit it afterwards and switch back to your local account.

    I only make comments about once a week so it's not a big deal switching back and forth.

    I am going to make a comment here. The Local Account that we are used to, at least some of us, is what we are use to using. I still do use the Local Only account on all of my computers except when beta testing. When I am beta testing there are a lot of things that are directly related to having an MS Account to test with. Do I like all these features, no but I do test them.

    So as far as testing I am doing Windows 10 with the MS Account for now. It is easier to give feedback and do some of the other things. It is actually showing me some other ways to accomplish tasks that I only did on a Local Account.

    MS should "pull their heads in"

    I'll take your word for it as I haven't tried it (I know there is a tutorial about doing it in the W8 series). :)

    MS should "pull their heads in" and fix this.
    It makes it unnecessarily difficult to provide feedback.

    The fact that some people (like me) refuse to use an online account is a piece of feedback that has been provided to them for free.
    There were a lot of complaints on Eight Forums about it too (hence the tutorial).

    There is no reason for MS (or anybody else) to know when I am using my PC.
