    Not sure why you guys are trying to uninstall it, simply disable it from startup, that's all you have to do.

    Why the icon is showing up is a mystery.

    Apparently, only if you`re running the Creator`s Update does One Drive show up as a stand alone app and can be removed from Add/Remove Programs

    I for me i'm not trying to uninstall it, i tried because i do not use it, i think it is
    normal to not install/keep software you do not use; but i think now onedrive
    is part of windows 10 system so removing can cause some harm.

    Did you read the article, it states One Drive can be uninstalled if you run the CU, but I just disable it.

    I don't store anything in the cloud, only games and they do that on their own

    Those Steam Cloud servers must be massive

    Since it seems like GPedit.msc is only for Pro editions and I have a Home edition, any option that comes along with that step is null and void for me too

    It seems like I've tried every regedit tip along with uninstalling OneDrive from the Control Panel and it just does not want to get rid of this.

    What is weird is that I didn't have this problem before with my previous version, so this is new to the reinstallation that Microsoft Support did (in their failed attempt to fix a certain multi-screen issue that I had to fix on my own after 8 techs kept screwing things up and getting me nowhere lol)

    I'd really rather not just reinstall Windows again to start with another fresh version, and in the grand scheme of things, this empty OneDrive folder doesn't seem to be causing any *problems*, but it's definitely annoying and if I can rectify that problem, I'd like to, if not just for peace of mind, you know?

    Since you say there is no option to delete it when you right click, could you post a pic of what you do see when you right click? All the options that you do have. Sounds suspiciously like a rogue symbolic link pointing to nowhere. Would like to see those options. Thanks.

    I assume you didn't create an image of your previous version ?

    Nope, and since the previous version I had where this wasn't a problem was from so, so long ago, I can't remember what steps I had originally done to get rid of OneDrive. Clearly, whatever those steps were at the time, I either did them in the wrong order this time, I'm missing something, or they don't work anymore haha.
