    Delete Onedrive icon from file explorer


    We are using OneDrive for business in our office. I link OneDrive to my business email address for a long time. Couple of days ago I linked of our colleague account to copy some folders to my desktop.

    After copying his data I unlinked his account but the OneDrive icon is still drive. Today I unlinked my account then delete the OneDrive folders from my account but this blue icon is still there.

    Please help me

    The tutorial can be simplified into one line of command:

    Code:
    (REG ADD "HKCR\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}" /V "System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree" /T REG_DWORD /D "0" /F)

    Right-click on the Start button --> Windows PowerShell (Admin).
    Run the following command to open Registry Editor:

    RegEdit

    Press Ctrl + F and search for C:\Users\HP\OneDrive XXXXXX (1)

    Replace XXXXXX with the actual name.

    I suggest that you post a request for help in the tutorial thread itself. In your post, point out that the full name of the entry includes OneDrive-----(1) because I think that is unusual.

    Thank you Mattheow.
    Your suggestion solved 90 % of the issue.
    I found four entries in the registry under OneDrive.. (1).
    As you can see in the picture there is a folder without a name in the file explorer. I hope there is a way to get it of it please

    The following command will reset OneDrive:

    %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset
