    Windows setup direct to personal one-drive rather to business one driv


    Hi all,
    hope you can answer on this one:

    I have purchase my office suit with via my business account. However, when I log in to my windows , it is linking my onedrive to my personal x.xx@hotmail.com (which is my microsoft ID)

    even tough I sign out from x.xx@hotmail.com and then signing in my business account (and asking the system always to maintain this choise) - whenever I restart my computer - it links me with x.xx@hotmail.com one-drive

    How can I change it ? I would like my business one-drive to be linked always and automatically to my windows on set up

    You can have multiple OneDrive accounts linked and synced at the same time, one personal OneDrive account (like your Hotmail account) and one or more OneDrive for Business accounts.

    Notice that as you can only link to one personal OneDrive, the button Personal is greyed out when personal OneDrive is already set up. Click Work or school:

    That's it. Windows creates now a folder for your OneDrive for Business in your user folder. The Taskbar notification area shows a white OneDrive icon for your personal account, and a blue icon for each Onedrive for Business account you have set up:

    By default the personal OneDrive folder in your user folder is named as OneDrive (shown as OneDrive - Personal in File Explorer's navigation pane) and business OneDrive as OneDrive - OrganisationName (same name shown in navigation pane and user folder):
