Microsoft is silently rolling out a new feature to OneDrive users. In latest Windows Insider preview builds, including 18272 and 18277, the OneDrive app follows the global dark theme option of Windows 10.
OneDrive is the online document storage solution created by Microsoft which comes bundled as a free service with Windows 10. It can be used to store your documents and other data online in the cloud. It also offers synchronization of stored data across all your devices. It comes with the "Files on-demand" feature that can display placeholder versions of online files in your local OneDrive directory even if they were not synchronized and downloaded.
Here is how the dark theme looks in OneDrive:
Enabling dark mode in OneDrive is possible using an option in the Settings app, which switches the app theme under Personalization -> Color. Unlike many Store (UWP) apps, File Explorer hasn't a dedicated option to turn on the dark theme separately from Settings. It follows the global option. Many of the first-party apps in Windows 10 follow the system option or have their own options for enabling the dark theme.
The app version with the dark theme support is 18.212.1021.0007. In my case, it is running on Windows 10 Build 18277.
Tip: Windows 10 allows you to save your time and upload screenshots automatically to OneDrive. Every time you capture a screenshot, it can be uploaded to the OneDrive folder. See the article How To Save Screenshots Automatically to OneDrive in Windows 10.
