Dropbox for Windows 10 update brings design refresh, new file layouts

Dropbox is getting a new look and some handy new features on Windows 10.

Dropbox recently shook things up with a colorful rebranding and design refresh, and now it's bringing some of that magic to its Windows 10 app as well. Dropbox version 5.0 is now rolling out to Windows 10 users with a refreshed design in tow, along with three new file layouts and more.

The biggest changeup most Dropbox users will latch onto right away is the design refresh. The app now carries an overall minimalistic look that fits in nicely with Microsoft's own Fluent Design language. The sidebar transparency effect, which initially debuted in an earlier version further drives home the Fluent Design inspiration.

Here's a full look at what's new in Dropbox version 5.0 for Windows 10, according to the release notes:

  • Display your files with 3 different layouts: gallery view, list view and content view
  • New design
  • New features for Dropbox Business users

Given Dropbox's recent drastic branding overhaul, it would be reasonable to expect some further design changes may be in the pipeline. For now, you can grab Dropbox 5.0 and all of the changes that come with it from the Windows Store now.
