    How can I "unhide" onedrive from file explorer


    I followed Microsoft's suggestion on how to disable one drive and as part of that where it has you hide it I right clicked on the onedrive icon that shows on the left side of file explorer (the navigation pane), chose properties and hid the folder near attributes (the option where it hides all subfolders etc).

    How can i unhide it? I've tried the obvious things but it doesn't come back to file explorer on the navigation pane.

    Open 'OneDrive' folder from the Start menu/AllApps list.

    Yes that is no problem. But what I want to do is have it listed in the navigation pane in file explorer like it was before i hid it. It is not reappearing no matter what i do. I'm not even going to use onedrive and am going to completely disable it but I just want to understand - how i can "unhide" something that has been hidden in the navigation pane. Showing hidden folders doesn't list it back there. I want to relist it there in the navigation pane in file explorer. How can i unhide it?

    I did try one of the tutorials that can remove and bring back but it doesn't work. I think that it because it is hidden from there.

    I don't see how you hid it through 'Properties' in the first place.
    Try re-instating it using Winaero Tweaker.

    Okay I'm right where you are and it does not offer onedrive in the right side as an option.
