    Just to say that if removing OneDrive by any method you should first click the Onedrive system tray icon and dig about in Onedrive settings to find the "start with windows" setting and disable it. Reboot - then remove OneDrive. Much better to remove it when it is not actually running.

    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

    Thanks alot man worked perfectly the problem is Creators Updates on either one of them


    @Brink your Reg key works perfect as well but for creators this key also needs modified to 0 then it goes away from explorer completely

    If 64-bit Windows 10, you may also need to modify the setting for System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree to 0 at the following registry location:HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6

    As long as you dont try to uninstall it as far a I can tell the below method or any of Brinks scripts work perfectly + the extra key value below removes it from explorer perm.

    It is now showing nowhere for me finally I am on Fall Creators
