Microsoft has today announced that it's pushing out an update to the Office hub website and built-in Office app for Windows 10 and Windows 11 with new features and an updated UI. The Office hub is where you can find all the documents you've been working on within Office, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote items.
The new Office hub experience includes a new homepage, which has been redesigned for quick access to your most important content. Additionally, there's a new "My Content" page which provides robust search and filtering experiences, making it easy to find any of your content across Teams, Outlook, OneDrive, and SharePoint.
There's also a new "Create" page that lets you see all your apps and tools, along with templates from all the different Office applications available to you.
Microsoft says the new Office hub experiences will begin rolling out in the coming weeks. You can access the Office hub by visitng office.com or opening the Office app that's pre-installed on Windows 10 and Windows 11 PCs.
Another Office Hub? How many's that in the last few years? 3? 4?
I wonder if they finally give me a reason to not uninstall it ASAP. Currently it's a mess. Some things open in an app, others open in a browser while having the app installed... I believe there's an article on this site from a while back describing all that too. Useless currently.
Agree. Without the ability to open things in the actual office apps Installed on your PC, this is worthless bloatware.
