What you need to know

  • The Office.com portal is getting a new look.
  • The interface is cleaner than the previous version, with different icon placement and more.
  • The redesign appears to only be rolling out for commercial customer right now. Microsoft has yet to announce the revamp

Microsoft today began rolling out a fresh new look for the Office.com portal for commercial customers. The redesign brings a clean look that also incorporates a bit of Microsoft's Fluent Design language and icons for each service or app flanking the left side.

The redesign was initially discovered by Aggiornamenti Lumia and detailed by Thurrott.com, but Microsoft hasn't formally announced it yet. At least for now, the new design only appears to be rolling out for commercial customers. Presumably, Microsoft 365 personal and family susbscribers will also see the revamp as well. Eventually.

  • Looks nice but I hope the revamp also improves sharing, including an option to share by including a doc as an attachment.
  • But does it support the ability to easily switch between account yet? That’s literally a staple feature in any family or business. On Google you can literally just click your little name icon and just switch to any other google account with so much ease. Yet Microsoft over here makes you completely log out and back in to switch accounts. How far behind can they be for freaks sake?
  • You can have multiple browsers for example I use Brave, Edge, Edge Dev and Edge Canary (one for each account)
  • You can use profiles in Edge for different accounts! (Or, if you use Firefox, container tabs.)
  • Actually, there is a way: Try switching the number at the end of www.office.com/?auth=1 for 2.
  • There are UserVoice suggestions for this already. It's been added to the Mobile version of Office, so hopefully this will be added for the browser soon.
  • Is this just for Enterprise E3, E5, E7 and F3? I am currently using Business Standard licenses for the employees and myself is Business Premium and don't see it.
