Microsoft has just rolled out a new Insider update for Office 2016 productivity suite on Windows desktop. The Office 2016 Build 10813.20004 for Windows desktop comes with new features for Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The update is currently only available for insiders, but it'll soon make its way to the users in the production ring as well.

One of the more desired features in this new version of the Office productivity suite is the ability to rename your Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files that are stored in One Drive or SharePoint. To access this feature you would need to click on the top-level app title bar to access this new Rename capability.

You can find the detailed changelog below:

  • When opening OneDrive or SharePoint Online documents, they will open in the desktop Office version when you click them in the Office app. You can change this behavior by updating your preferences.

  • Microsoft has added a new feature that lets you rename the Word, Excel and PowerPoint files if they are stored in One Drive or SharePoint.

  • Microsoft now lets you remove the Word, Excel and PowerPoint files from the Most Recently Used (MRU).

As well as the changes, this update comes with a variety of bug fixes including ones that fixed crashes in Excel and Word.

Microsoft says that the Office Insider program helps the company ensure that things are working smoothly before releasing the feature to a wider audience. If you're interested, you can learn more and join the Office Insider program here.
