Microsoft is celebrating OneDrive’s 15th anniversary With a new landing page called OneDrive Home, you can easily keep track of your work. Instead of going to the My Files tab when you first open OneDrive, you’ll find yourself on a new home page that looks like the dashboard in the online version of Office.
Like the Office web app, OneDrive Home includes a list of files sorted by how recently they’ve been accessed. Above the list are filters that allow you to sort documents by Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF file types.
There’s also a new “Activity” column to the right of the “Owner” file field, which indicates when someone posts a comment, @ indicates another user, or assigns a task within a shared document. On the left side of Home View, Microsoft is adding a new Quick Access section where (just like Windows) you can find and pin frequently used locations.
Unfortunately, these changes aren’t in effect yet – Microsoft says OneDrive Home will be available in the coming months. It looks like the new home page could act as a central hub to help you stay organized while collaborating remotely.
In addition to the OneDrive web app, Microsoft also publishes files Photo history feature The OneDrive mobile app (essentially OneDrive – the equivalent of Instagram Stories) for Australian users. The feature will not reach users in the US or other regions until the end of the year.
