    Nar, it'll only affect file storage in File Explorer and OneDrive.

    I just tested in a VM and my desktop with the same MS acccount and the OneDrive disabled on the desktop. The changes I made (ex: show/hide hidden files) in the VM still got synced to the desktop. :)
    OK good to know then. The list of things that wouldn't work had me wondering. False alarm on my part.

    No worries. It's always good to question and check these sort of things. :)

    I might actually do that GPedit now. The only thing I use Onedrive for is to sync settings across my PC's.
