    This caught me! I had to take ownership of the checked out documents that were uploaded using file explorer, turn off "Require check out", go back into file explorer and delete all the files that were uploaded, then re-upload them, and then turn back on the setting. I spent too much time on powershell script because I only wanted 1 folder and those documents that I took ownership. Due to time constraints - this is how I worked around it. You are correct that hiding the check in/discard under "more" is very confusing to the end users.

    Tried it with Chrome Version 72.0.3626.109 (Official Build) (64-bit) in Windows 10 and Outlook Version 1901 (Build 11231.20130) - still not working.

    We are a government agency - and we cannot drag/drop any email in any browser going from the Outlook client into SharePoint online.

    Actually, that is not what is happening which is causing the main consternation - the file is not for editing, just browsing, but if it is a PDF portfolio - the users cannot view it. It is the same as .msg files. You cannot view it even if you have the software installed. There is an "Open in Client" option that does not work for these files.

    Adobe Portfolio PDF's won't open online - even if you set the library to use the client application - it still uses the browser. I have the desktop default to use Adobe Acrobat DC and will only work if I download the file - does not default even though Word/office will use the clients if I set it on site collection and/or library.

    Every library has an option to allow a file to be opened by the client as a default. It is supposed to be part of Office 365 - but looks like it excludes .msg files which makes no sense. This is extremely important for SharePoint Online to be a records repository!

    We are continuing to make our large list experiences better, please keep the feedback coming.

    Spring 2018 update:
    - We now support being able to manually add indexes to lists of any size (increased from lists up to 20,000 items previously).
    - Starting with the February release of the Office 365 Excel client, you will be able to export your full list instead of getting cut off part of the way through.

    What we are working on now:
    - Predictive indexing will start to work for lists larger than 20,000 items so your views will automatically cause the right indexes to be added to your lists.

    In our backlog:
    - Being able to index/sort/filter by lookup column types (like person, lookup or managed metadata columns) without being throttled.
    - Making sure that our REST APIs support querying in ways that will guarantee that the call will not be throttled.

    For…

    The issue of displaying the list has been improved, but the issue still remains that as soon as you exceed 5000 records - you cannot change the views nor create new ones. This is a fundamental requirement for end-users - and a procedure on SQL can be done to do the paging that you created on the list display. Of course - you cannot download 1 million records/metadata in 1 postback, it would be detrimental to the network - but as a web coder and an SQL DBA - I do know that it is not that difficult to provide procedures to bring the data down. At the very least, allow modifications of views and put the limitation of batches not to exceed 5000.
