    One thing I found shocking in moving to Win10 was the clutter of the File Explorer navigaton pane. I use a bunch of those reg tweaks to get rid of that stuff, Heres the whole ugly list just to show how much clutter. BTW, One Drive is not in there because I run LTSC 2019 which does not have it.

    Right click OneDrive icon in system tray ( if present )and set it to not start with windows. Reboot.
    In an elevated command prompt:
