  6. Get rid of "copy of" when doing save as

    Please get rid of the "copy of" prefix that automatically comes up whenever I do a file save as! It is never, ever helpful and always has to be deleted.

  11. Stop turning off ONE DRIVE. Leave it on at alll times.

    LEAVE ONE DRIVE ON! NEVER TURN IT OFF. I have to turn it on and that is a really bad idea. One Drive is a bad dog when it is OFF - USELESS AND NOT DEPENDABLE. LEAVE IT ON. WORTHLESS WHEN OFF. LEAVE IT ON! PERIOD! I PAID FOR IT; SO, LEAVE IT ON. i LOSE DATA WHEN YOU EXPECT ME TO TURN IT ON EVERY **** TIME I DO A SAVE ON MY OWN. I HATE ONE DRIVE UNLESS I NEED IT. NEVER TURN IT OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Let user select delimiter when saving as CSV

    When saving a worksheet as CSV, Excel doesn´t allow me to choose which character to use as delimiter. It uses the character set as list separator in the Windows´ Region settings. The only way to change the delimiter Excel uses for CSV is changing that Windows setting, but it causes a lot of side effects in other applications (even in Excel).
    It would be very usefull allowing the user to choose the CSV delimiter when saving a sheet as CSV (at least let the user choose from a set of characters, in order to avoid conflict with decimal separator).

  13. Open protected workbook file with Windows Face recognition

    I think if we can make more options to open a protected workbook file, like Windows face recognition or Microsoft authenticator, it will make opening a protected workbook faster. Also, these options will make working with protected files safer and secure.

  15. Why is it so difficult to export to XML with Excel?

    In Access I can just select Export to XML and done. It's would be great to have that option in Excel too, rather than having to assign fields one by one. Surely it's great to have such powerful options, but when I just want a simple XML file it's not worth the effort. I always end up exporting to Access and doing the job from there.

  20. Keep the dimensions (width and height) of the spreadsheet as it was saved.

    Keep the dimensions (width and height) of the spreadsheet as it was saved and not only be able to resize it to 50%, even though you can adjust it later (Win + arrow). In previous versions it was like this.
