In MS Teams we can access the Teams using the MS Teams desktop app, but my question is if SharePoint online has a desktop app similar to MS Teams desktop app?

So users can access the SharePoint sites using the desktop app installed inside their windows PCs?


I have windows 10 machine, and i get the app from this link https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/sharepoint/9nblggh510hb?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

and now it showed me that i own the app, as follow:-

enter image description here

but i can not find any sharepoint app inside my windows 10. so how i can have SharePoint app inside my windows 10 laptop?

    It's probably showing that the account that you are logged in to when you access that page has downloaded the SharePoint mobile app, not necessarily that the SharePoint mobile app is on the device that you are accessing that page from. Feb 11, 2021 at 19:44
  • @DylanCristy ok so the question is if we can have sharepoint desktop app inside our windows Pc?

  • I think Ganesh Sanap answered that - there is no desktop app for SharePoint. Feb 11, 2021 at 20:35
  • @DylanCristy but what does this app @ microsoft.com/en-us/p/sharepoint/… refer to?

  • The mobile app. The first line of the description says "Get your intranet in your pocket with the SharePoint mobile app." It is meant for mobile devices, not desktop/laptop PCs. Feb 11, 2021 at 21:16

There is no desktop app for SharePoint online but you can use Onedrive and sync sharepoint files in there if you're using Office365. Please refer to below link for details:
