Sharing files from OneDrive (opens in new tab) will soon be both easier and faster as Microsoft is currently working on a new update for its cloud storage (opens in new tab) service.
According to a post (opens in new tab) on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap, the software giant will soon allow users to pin and reorder shared libraries. When this new functionality becomes available next month, it will be easier for users to manage the list of places they've recently accessed or opened a file from.
OneDrive users will also have a simpler time picking up where they left off as they will be able to pin their frequently used shared libraries to the menu on the left side.
While this isn't a major update, it could prove especially useful for those that depend on Microsoft's online collaboration tools (opens in new tab) and office software (opens in new tab) as part of their daily workflow as they won't have to waste time trying to find a particular file or shared library.
Add to OneDrive shortcuts
In a separate post (opens in new tab), Microsoft announced that users of its cloud storage service will also soon be able to organize their “Add to OneDrive” shortcuts.
Just like with the ability to pin and reorder shared libraries, this new file management (opens in new tab) feature will be available next month and with it, users will be able move their “Add to OneDrive” folder shortcuts into any private folder they create in OneDrive.
Microsoft has spent a good part of this year adding new features and functionality to OneDrive and it will be interesting to see what improvements the company has in store for its cloud storage service next year as more people begin upgrading to Windows 11 (opens in new tab).
