      The 5,000 item threshold is likely here to stay. We are aware that it takes awareness on both sides to get past this limitation: list owners have to build the right fields, indices, and indexed views so that end user queries can run successfully in large lists. And then, end users have to run the correct queries – they can’t just open the root of the list, they have to use a filtered, indexed view.

      We want to pursue work that helps on both these ends – for example, proactively indexing more lists, making suggestions to list owners for views to create that will help end users, and helping end users at query time pick filters that will unblock their queries. Additionally, we want to increase our support for running more types of queries in large lists when an index is present – for example, instead of requiring an indexed…

      SharePoint stores it's content in a SQL database. The 5000 items limit in a document library makes no sense especially when there is an item limit setting in the view, which btw is ok if it's lower than 5000. Many of my customers have up to 20000 documents in a single document library and wants to find duplicates which requires the use of "Show all items without folders" in views. A view without folders but with a item limit of lets say 1000 would work just fine. But it doesn't.

        I can only agree with others. This is a must!

          I can't understand why Microsoft hasn't built in a tool for copying/moving files and folders BETWEEN document libraries. This a very common request! Keep in mind that SharePoint was released in 2001. 15 years later, the product STILL lacks this tool.
          Many users are now on Macs or run FF or Chrome without support for the Explorer view. Keep in mind that Microsoft has developed the SiteManager (/_layouts/sitemanager.aspx) but for unknown reason stopped the development of that tool. Yes it's there in SPO but lacks move/copy capabilities (!)
