You will also experience a refreshed layout of the left navigation pane in File Explorer. Update will simplify navigating to folders. Furthermore, the updated organization allows you to easily access your pinned and frequently used folders (“Quick access”) and your OneDrive cloud profiles added to Windows. You will see user’s name associated with the account on OneDrive cloud profiles. Previously, you used to get known Windows folders in the navigation pane under This PC by default. Now this will be absent from there, keeping view focused on your PC’s drives. 

Now onwards, when you navigate to folders syncing to OneDrive such as Videos, Documents, Pictures, etc., the address bar displays the correct path to help differentiate when your folders are on the cloud vs when they are local to you.

This feature is currently not being rolled out to all insiders even though they are in the beta channel. The company will monitor the feedback of insiders and then make it available to all. To lodge your feedback, press Win+F.

Known issues

On File Explorer tabs, the up arrow is misaligned. This will be corrected in a future update.
