Offline Files for Windows Now Available in OneDrive UWP App on Windows 10 Fast Ring PCs


Last week during Microsoft Ignite in Atlanta we picked up a nice OneDrive roadmap feature, Offline Files for Windows, that was due to arrive on Windows 10 in the OneDrive Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app sometime before the end of 2016.

Well it appears that feature has been added to version 17.15.5 of the OneDrive App for tablets and PCs on systems in the Windows Insider Fast Ring.

This addition to the OneDrive UWP app brings it up to near feature parity with its counterparts on iOS and Android and enables you to designate files that you want stored on your local drive. This feature is scheduled to arrive on the mobile version of the OneDrive UWP app sometime in 2017 along with the ability to designate offline folders on all Windows devices with the app.

This gallery will give you a look at the capability on the OneDrive UWP app for PCs.
