OneDrive’s new people-focused design is coming to all Windows users

OneDrive's redesigned app, introduced for schools and businesses, is coming to all users.



Any files you have stored in OneDrive or other cloud services are probably organized by file and name so you know where they are. But in the workplace, all bets are off. A new OneDrive for the web UI feature helps solve that problem.

OneDrive’s new feature allows you to organize files by people, not just file name. You can also organize them by meeting, too—even upcoming meetings that haven’t happened yet. Microsoft added this new UI refresh in 2023, but said this week that consumers will see it as well by the end of February 2024. (This update applies to the OneDrive app for Windows, not File Explorer.)

Those are two solid improvements to the OneDrive UI. If you’re the type of person who can mentally categorize files across multiple workgroups, good for you. Sometimes that means navigating through threads and chat rooms to find the relevant file, whether they’ve ben bookmarked or pinned or not. What OneDrive is proposing is simply skipping all that.
