Microsoft has updated the Office UWP app that is available for Windows 10 users via the Store with a new vertical layout. The feature is already rolling out to Insiders, so there is a chance that you will get it soon.
The change, as spotted by Windows Blog Italia, includes the following key changes.
- App shortcuts are moved to the rightreach.
- You can now use
Ctrl + clickon the app to instantly create a new document or file.
- Click the
All appstab to view all Microsoft 365 apps.
There is also a nice looking "New document" button.
As above noted, the change is rolling to Insiders. However, this time it is a server-side change, so updating the app is not required. For most users restarting the app is enough. If you are a Windows Insider, but have no Office app installed, you can get it from the Store.
