    Eliminate One Drive

    I don't want, don't need, don't use one drive. How do I eliminate it? I've tried and have setup preferences in MS Word but it still wants to "Browse" to one drive and save if I'm not careful. Same with some other apps.

    "Right-click/Quit OneDrive" in taskbar icon . Doesn't that stop any posting to OneDrive?

    Hello fireberd,

    You could use the method in the tutorial below to disable OneDrive integration and remove it in Windows 10.

    I've previously used the tutorial and option 1, but it hasn't completely stopped it.

    Odd. What is OneDrive still doing?

    Did you also do step 7 in Option One to remove OneDrive from the navigation pane in File Explorer?

    Have you uninstalled onedrive? I recall doing so - as a conventional program. You can additionally do that via Revo or Geek uninstaller. It's also available as an app from store though.

    I tried step 7 but it didn't remove it from mine.

    I uninstalled one drive with Revo Uninstaller Pro but still around.

    I disabled what I could find with Win Patrol but apparently not enough.

    I'll run the Utility and see what that does.

    @fireberd Is it possible that there is saved data in OneDrive and the data needs to be deleted before you can accomplish what you want to do? I don't really know but I suspect the tutorial works from here on out: but if there is still data that hasn't been deleted OneDrive is still visible? I know I'm speculating but I'm just thinking "out loud" of what's happening.

    I should mention that when I wanted to disable OneDrive (I don't want to remove it, I just don't want to use it at the present time) on one of my computers, I was notified that I had to go to OneDrive's "location or wherever" some data was sent to. I wish I could remember accurately but unfortunately I didn't take notes of what I had to do.

    I followed that tutorial afterward and now documents do not go to OneDrive anymore.
    --- However pictures will go to OneDrive unless I ensure they go to my C:\Users\pictures directory.
    --- I don't know why yet but I'll see what I can do as time goes on.
