Explore the Files list in Teams

Select Files Files button  on the left of the app to view all your team files, which are sorted into the following categories:

  • Recent shows you every Microsoft 365 document you’ve viewed or edited in recent history.

    Note: Another way to view your recent files is to type /files into the command bar at the top of Teams.

  • Microsoft Teams shows you all the documents that have been created or edited recently in the channels that show in your teams list.

  • Downloads contain a list of all the files you've downloaded from Teams. This list clears each time you log out of Teams.

  • Cloud storage shows all the different cloud storage services you've connected to Teams. Select one to see your cloud files. From here, you can delete any personal file you've added to Teams, upload, and create new ones. Files added to cloud storage are private until you share them.

Note: By default, you'll have OneDrive available. Depending on policies set by your IT admin, you'll be able to add other third-party cloud storage, like Box, Dropbox, and more. Look for the Add cloud storage button at the bottom of the app.
