    On your original right-click pic, see if you can click Share and go thru the options to stop sharing it. May give you the option to delete if you can stop sharing it. Also, you may need to take ownership of it, because you're getting that security tab message.

    (I keep the Take Ownership on my right click context menu options)

    If I click "stop sharing", nothing happens.

    When I tried to take ownership with the elevated command prompt, I get the error message "The system cannot find the file specified."

    There isn't an option to delete when I right click on it.

    In the end, this is all rather pointless - onedrive is a relatively integral part of windows 10, and as other say just disable it from start-up.

    People have to get it into their heads that things like Cortana, Onedrive etc. are not the same as traditional win32 apps, and removing by unofficial means can create all sorts of problems, up to and including breaking windows.

    The obsession with "bloat" by many is silly (imo) - I can understand in the past when disk space was at a premium, getting rid of things not needed was useful, but nowadays (unless on tablets e.g. with 32GB drives or similar), most have plenty of storage space. Hell, the WHOLE of the windows operating system is barely any bigger than the contents of just 1 dual layer DVD! So in simple terms, if you do not needed something, just ignore it.

    Hate to point out something obvious, but you did put your user name there instead of "MyUsername"?

    At a command prompt, copy and paste this command and run it. Post a screenshot of the result.

    dir /s /o %userprofile%\desktop

    Haha no, I'm using my actual username. I just replaced that information with "MyUsername" because it's my name and I'd rather not have that info tied to this username as I use iKing1 for anonymity's sake compared to other more public things tied to my name.

    Running dir /s /o %userprofile%\desktop comes up with a list of the files inside various folders within my desktop, but not all of them, and nothing related to OneDrive. It's just a list of various images and Photoshop documents and such inside of one of my folders that I use for work.

    Only conclusion I can come to after that is it's a phantom image of something. If it doesn't show any reference at all. Try a kilo of C4.
