    How to remove OneDrive entries from right click context menu


    Hi, this is my first post and I hope this is the right forum section.
    I'm trying to make Windows 10 more "personal", adding/removing some features according to my needs. Now I'm customising the right click context menu and I'd like to remove OneDrive entries, without disabling or uninstalling OneDrive (that I use). Is it possible to do that? Could you explain which reg keys to disable? Thank you in advance.

    Hi Gary and welcome to Ten Forums

    You can get a few apps that will let you change your context menu but a easy way is if you use CCleaner, Go > Tools / Startup left click One Drive and Disable, it will disappear from your right click menu >

    Hi Stephanie, thank you for your welcome
    I've tried your solution but it's not suitable for my purpose, because disabling OneDrive through CCleaner removes the right click context menu entries and also prevents OneDrive from working. I'd like to remove the OneDrive entries in context menu without stopping OneDrive background sync. I also tried ShellExView and ShellMenuView, unfortunately having no success (I didn't find any entries related to OneDrive).

    I finally managed to hide OneDrive entries from context menu, keeping OneDrive sync turned on. I used ShellExView and disabled the DLL extension named "FileSyncEx". The solution is easily reversible thanks to ShellExView, so there will be no problem for future changes.
