Download the OneDrive app for Windows 10 on your PC to access all your personal and work files

We’re continually working on making the OneDrive experience on Windows 10 even better. At Build, we demonstrated how you can use OneDrive on Hololens. Recently, we also added new features to our mobile app that allow users to automatically upload screenshots, receive notifications when someone starts editing a shared document, and pin specific folders to the Start screen. But today we’re releasing an update that brings our app to your Windows 10 PC and the Surface Hub – a top requested feature on our UserVoice forum.

OneDrive already comes preinstalled on Windows 10 PCs, and with it, users can easily access their synced files through File Explorer. But this new app is a great, touch-friendly complement that lets you get to, 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 drag and drop files to the app to upload them, view pictures and albums from the Photos tab, quickly access recent documents (which will open directly in the Office applications on your computer), find shared files from friends or coworkers, and more. And finally, you can protect your data in the OneDrive app with Windows Hello. If you use a shared PC this can come in handy!

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.

In the meantime, make sure Windows 10 is up-to-date and head on over to the Store to download the app, and let us know what you think.
