It appears that Microsoft is working on a UI makeover for OneDrive. The redesigned cloud storage client will match the aesthetics of Windows 11 and is currently being tested. Leaked images of the new UI were shared by a Windows Insider on Twitter.
From the leaked images, it can be assumed that OneDrive will only be getting cosmetic upgrades, with no changes in the overall functionality. The app will be more in line with the look and feel of Windows 11, sporting transparency effects, rounded corners, and updated fonts, among other UI elements.

Screenshots of the new settings section of OneDrive show significant changes in the UI. The new interface gives the old “General” tab a miss and instead includes sections on the left-hand side. The Sync and backup page allows you to change settings pertaining to the backup. Additionally, a major portion of the General tab has been shifted to the new Notifications section.
Furthermore, the new upgrade removes the Network tab and Office tab. All the features included in these sections have been shifted to the Backup and sync page, under Advanced settings.

Do note that the version seen in the leaked images is a Microsoft internal build of OneDrive. We wouldn’t recommend you to download the update as it could still have some bugs. Moreover, since the update is still in the testing phase, it’s likely that the version that will be rolled out the public could be different from the leaks.
