    Disable New One Drive "Save this file" Pop Up Window


    Hi is there a way to stop the Save To ONE Drive Popup window every time I try to "Save" Or Save To with a Doc" this Popup comes up and says save to One Drive?
    I don't use One Drive I haven't used it for at least a year. I don't want it and I have deleted every mention of One Drive in my PC Yesterday? That stopped it' but now it's back?
    Once the Popup window opens you cannot Close it and save normally? Unless I go to Task Manager and End-Task it there
    This has only started since I extended my Google Drive storage 3 Days ago
    Kind Regards Dasha

    Hi, you might try
    Enable or Disable OneDrive Integration

    (the reg fle in your case).

    If you have a Onedrive account, you might also try making sure you're signed out if it if you can find a way to do that:
    Sign Out of OneDrive in Windows 10 (Unlink PC)

    - if you're signed out, no syncing occurs.

    I thought I had eliminated it and now find it's in
    %userprofile%\appdata\local\Microsoft\Onedrive

    as onedrive.exe - shown here:

    If you're using a Microsoft account you'll be signed into OneDrive but you can unlink it from your PC to prevent further syncing....

    To unlink right click OneDrive, Settings, click the "Account" tab and click "Unlink the PC" link. Your file are now no longer sync'd between the OneDrive folder and your online account. Once that's done you can prevent OneDrive from opening when you login by again, going to settings and going to the Settings tab and unchecking the "Start OneDrive automatically when I sign in to Windows" box.

    That's it. No more OneDrive. The OneDrive folder will be there (I wouldn't advise deleting it) but you can treat it as an empty folder or leave the files that's already there as they'll no longer be sync'd.
