    OneDrive folders appear under 'ThisPC' dialog windows of many programs


    Hi everyone,

    whenever I open a dialog window in a program (i.e. to open/save a file) I get, under ThisPC all Onedrive folders before getting the Drives.
    Under This PC I cleaned all folders that are not drive, so it looks like:

    OneDrive folders appear under 'ThisPC' dialog windows of many programs-thispc.jpg

    While my OneDrive folder (location: D:\OneDrive) :
    OneDrive folders appear under 'ThisPC' dialog windows of many programs-oned1.jpg

    Well, these are my dialog windows for 3 different programs.

    OneDrive folders appear under 'ThisPC' dialog windows of many programs-oned2.jpgOneDrive folders appear under 'ThisPC' dialog windows of many programs-oned3-adobe.jpgOneDrive folders appear under 'ThisPC' dialog windows of many programs-oned3-dup.jpg

    The onedrive folders are before any drive unit.

    Thank you for any help

    cheers

    How did you "clear" them under This PC​?

    How about the file dialogs opened by Notepad​?

    I think I cleared them with a tutorial found in this site, it works with this registry edit:

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{088e3905-0323-4b02-9826-5d99428e115f}]

    for every folder you want to delete.

    Actually with notepad the dialog window is fine!

    Ithiught it would be. All your screenshots were of legacy (32-bit) dialogs.

    Look in the registry under:
    Code:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace
    Delete the subkeys there as well.
