    Looks like the proper methods on that site.

    rd "%UserProfile%\OneDrive" /Q /S would be: remove directory "directoryxxxx" /Q~uiet, no Yes/No confirmation /S~ubfolders and files and the directory folder itself.

    @Edwin: Thanks, I had no idea what rd stood for. I couldn't find any folders that way. If I do a search for OneDrive, I come up with endless amounts of folders which I'm just not willing - because of my inexperience in these matters - to just start deleting things. About the only thing I felt comfortable in doing was uninstalling OneDrive and I had hoped it would've deleted that folder. Hopefully one day someone sees this post and has a simple solution, but until then I guess I'm stuck with it, even though I'm still gonna google this pretty much forever, lol. Thank you for your responses.

    This is my first post and I apologize if this has been answered before but I cannot find it anywhere on the web whatsoever. Everything points to removing from the Navigation Pane but that's not what I need. I uninstalled OneDrive through Microsoft's correct way of doing so but I can't get rid of the OneDrive "folder" in the two areas you can see in the screenshot. Thanks, I hope someone can help.
    Removing the following key should do the trick :
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}

    That, my friend, is a BEAUTIFUL thing!!! Man, I really appreciate that. I realize it's just a massive OCD thing on my part, but it was like the only thing that was just bugging me that not only was it there, but that I just couldn't find a fix for it no matter what I searched for. Not knowing computer terminology also makes it really tough trying to piece things together on google searches.

    Your a good dude, I thank you!
