    Help - OneDrive/Quick Access bypass not working

    I am getting a bit frustrated with Windows 10 Pro and not sure what to try. So I do not want to use OneDrive or Quick Access. One of the first things I did was go to folder options and changed "open file explorer to:" this PC instead of quick access. I then unchecked both quick access options under privacy. So now when I hit start and select downloads, pictures, or file explorer, it actually opens to this PC. Not documents though. It still opens to quick access every time. I tried a restart, still nothing.

    Hello ResurrectedXlll, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you like, you could use the two tutorials below to disable and remove Quick access and OneDrive.

    Well, that did not work. The quick access tab on the left is completely gone now, but when I click start and documents, it still goes to "C:\Users\kacyg\OneDrive\Documents"

    Please post a screenshot showing this Documents folder in Start to help verify what this could be. :)

    Sorry for the late reply. I missed your post somehow.

    By default, the Documents from the Start list opens to Documents in This PC. The Documents folder in This PC is just a link of your "C:\Users\(user-name)\Documents" folder though.

    Since it opens to your OneDrive location instead, it sounds like you have Documents set to save to OneDrive by default. You can use the same steps in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below to set Documents to save to the default This PC only again.

    THAT WORKED! Thanks! I had to go back in and reactivate OneCloud so I could do this.
