Access iCloud Files in Windows
Announcing the release in a blog post, Microsoft’s Giorgio Sardo said the app “introduces a new iCloud Drive experience for Windows 10 users powered by the same Windows technology that also powers OneDrive’s Files On-Demand feature.” It allows “users to be more productive offline on mobile devices and quickly share files on iOS,” he added.
Through the app, users can:
- Access files stored in the cloud via Windows File Explorer,
- Choose the files and folders to store on the PC
- Access files stored on iOS devices, Mac and on iCloud.com
- Share files from File Explorer to collaborate and sync edits across devices.
