    Is it safe to delete those "Where are my files" Icons? And how?


    Apologies if this is the wrong thread, I couldn't decide which sub-forum was best suited, so please move as needed. These Icons are OneDrive icons, but I disabled OneDrive via Group Policy. So now these Icons sit around doing nothing. I was wondering if I should right click and delete and if that would be safe or if that would lead to interesting situations. Or is there some checkbox to turn off those blue Icons? See screenshot. It's in my Documents folder too.

    They are just shortcuts on your desktop.

    OK. I'll delete them then. That's where I was headed, just thought I'd be sure. Solved.
