    Install went well, I like the updated UI, Task Tray and Icons. The SP3 Screen looks crisper and performance is improved. I want to see if Wireless Display is fixed will test in a bit....

    Ah gawd - why have Microsoft removed the Placeholder feature? All they had to do was to use an overlay icon to distinguish between a Placeholder and the actual file. But no, they had to go and invoke the nuclear option.

    Since it is impossible to search file metadata in OneDrive online, I rely on Windows Search to search the OneDrive folders on my PC - the Placeholders contain file metadata.

    Now, I can't search my OneDrive files anywhere.

    Agreed, as much as I hate the touch stuff getting changed, reverting this Onedrive feature is just far, far worse.

    And a long response to the Uservoice post:

    https://windows.uservoice.com/forum...n-advanced-option-to-restore-showing-all-oned


    I'm not really satisfied with that response, to be honest.

    Yeah...I'm taken back by this. It is the same backwards thinking that brought back the Start Menu. One or more Enterprise Customers complained about OneDrive Online files confusing their workforce and some users had experienced syncing issues so they ditch the entire functionality.

    On top of that, they locked us out of the MUI OneDrive App, so are only way to see everything is via the web.

    With this response, it would appear that Microsoft has not in fact thrown the smart files/placeholders baby out with the bathwater, but is trying to improve it. That’s a good thing. However, it’s a pity that they couldn’t have been a bit more open about this upfront. Telling us that they were introducing cool new features, whilst in fact apparently removing one is yet another example of Microsoft opening its mouth, only to exchange feet.
