Microsoft updates OneDrive for Business for easier file management in your browser

OneDrive Web update

Microsoft’s OneDrive for Business Web app is getting an update to make it easier to create, share and find your files in the cloud.

For starters, a simplified right-click menu for files and folders gives you options to quickly edit, download, share, copy or move and delete them. The contextual menu also includes advanced actions like viewing version history.

There’s a revamped search tool that shows you files and folders that match your query as you’re typing — including those that other users have shared with you.

In addition, recently uploaded and accessed files are displayed in a more informative card layout, eschewing the traditional list format. Each card includes a file preview and contextual information to help you easily identify the content at a glance.

Finally, you can now invite people to share a folder while you’re creating a new one.

These small changes look like they’ll certainly improve the user experience for OneDrive business users on the Web. The new features will begin rolling out today through the month to all users.
