Official OneDrive app for Windows 10 Universal Windows Platform released

Mark Coppock


A preview of a OneDrive app for the Universal Windows Platform has been floating around for a little while now, with unofficial workarounds to get the app installed on Windows Insider builds of Windows 10. Now, however, Microsoft has made the process a bit easier by officially releasing the app for all Windows 10 users.

As Microsoft highlights on the Office blog:

The new OneDrive sync client already comes pre-installed on Windows 10 PCs, allowing users to easily access their synced files through File Explorer. But this new app is a great touch-friendly complement to sync that lets you open, edit and share any of your personal or work files without having to sync them to your device.

Additional features previously only available in the browser experience are also available, such as restoring files from the Recycle Bin, easily dragging and dropping files to the app to upload them, quickly accessing recent documents─which will open directly in the Office applications on your computer─finding files shared with you by others and more.

This update delivers OneDrive experiences to even more devices, and we will bring other capabilities to this platform over time. As we announced last week, this app will also provide an easy and lightweight way to access your company’s SharePoint libraries, and we look forward to sharing additional details on what else we’re working on very soon.

Head on over to the link below and get the app installed. Let us know in the comments what you think of it, and Microsoft is requesting your feedback as usual.
