    You might also send feedback to Microsoft for this to see if it may help. :)

    OK, I found out how to do this for any folder - not just OneDrive or BoxSync!

    Open the Registry Editor and do a search for this keyword: "IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree".

    There will be other keys that contain this, not just OneDrive or BoxSync. There may or may not be a description in the other variables, but with the Windows File Explorer open on one side of your desktop and the Registry Editor open on the other, you can open the "IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree" and change the value from 1 to 0, and see what changes in Windows File Explorer.

    Some values go to system settings (like This PC) and cannot be turned off. Windows will give you a note, and the value won't change.

    If you changed what you want, you are done. If not, change the value back before continuing on your hunt.
