    OneDrive


    Hi. I never use or trust the mS cloud or any system. I like everything where I need it at home. If I want to share it or make it more accessable I can do that myself.

    Every time I try to save a word(2016) document. It insists on sending it to one drive. I am not allowed to choose a default directory.
    Where is this one drive as I have acedently saved stuff their?

    I have already gone to settings and set E:\Emergency\1_Word_Documents\ as the default location but MS word ignores this.

    You can try changing options in the Group Policy Editor under Computer Configuration // Administrative Templates // Windows Components // OneDrive. I tend to change all options there to stop OneDrive from doing anything.

    As you have Win 7 (according to your specs) you may not have group policy available.

    If you don't use Onedrive at all, then disable it synching, disable integration (see Tutorials as appropriate - there are plenty on Onedrive) and uninstall Onedrive completely. Be cautious in that sequence- don't rush to uninstall.

    Any synched data can still be retrieved from your online account by logging in via a browser.

    I guess that you need to stop using Linux, Windows, Github, multiple gaming companies, the list goes on.

    You are posting in the Windows 10 forum. If running Windows 10, Please update your Specs in the My Computer section of your Profile. This says you still are running Windows 7.
    When you save a Word document, choose Save AS instead of Save and choose where you want to save it. That will be the next Save location by default after that.
    Here ae some other tips: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/files-save-to-onedrive-by-default-in-windows-33da0077-770c-4bda-b61e-8c8e8ca70ac7

    As you have Win 7 (according to your specs) ???
    I am using Windows 10 and this is a W110 forum.

    What is a Group Policy Editor ? This is a single stand alone computer. I am not part of a group within a big companny like MS.

    Profile -> System speck shows W7. There is no edit button.

    Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc in Pro Systems - can be added to Home systems) is used to edit the policies that run a Windows computer.

    There are sections that cover various Windows components such as OneDrive.

    To have local drive as default save location is this specific policy.

    admin -> windows components -> onedrive -> "save documents to onedrive by default"

    if you prefer a reg import

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\OneDrive]
    "DisableLibrariesDefaultSaveToOneDrive"=dword:00000001

    Thank you so much for your polite reply.

    Here's how to change that:

    As for the group policy editor... if you had used Google you might have discovered it's included, for example, in every Windows 10 Pro installation, but not in Home.

    Now your specs don't say if you have Home, Pro or something else.

    I have the group policy editor and I use certain policies. And this is my personal PC.
