    OneDrive as an application?


    Lately OneDrive appears as one of the applications installed on my system; and the Windows Exprolorer lists it among the content of the system.
    As shown there, it appears to contain a single file (or feature, maybe not a real file) with this name: .849C9593-D756-4E56-8D6E-42412F2A707B. Clicking on this just opens an empty Notebook and nothing else happens.

    - How can I get rid of this application, as it seems quite useless, and I'm not aware of having installed it myself?
    I cannot delete the file mentionned because a process keeps it open, a pop-up says.
    I cannot uninstall OneDrive because that option is disabled on the list of applications.

    - And what is this OneDrive application anyway? It doesnít seem to be the same thing as OneDrive, the storage space in the cloud, which I use regularly, and performs all right.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hello aca,

    The tutorial below can help explain what OneDrive is, and show you how to disable OneDrive integration in Windows 10. :)

    OneDrive can be quite useful if you have a need for cloud storage or sharing of files.
