Windows 10: How do I stop Groove checking Onedrive? Solved

    How do I stop Groove checking Onedrive?


    On a fairly new local user, I played a song and Groove loaded and started creating a library of all my songs. I didn't intend to use Groove and swapped to another player but now every day Runtime broker/Onedrive will run at least once and consume about 40% CPU & up to 1.9gb of ram for about 20 minutes, but it gives all the resources back once finished. This happens a few times in a day, I wouldn't mind if it wasn't every day. Or I knew why it was doing it, or if it would eventually stop.

    I have all my music on onedrive but only as a back up, I don't actually use it.

    I noticed if I remove Onedrive from list of sources in Groove it would stop the Runtime broker but I have to do this every day as it seems to forget the settings even if I restart PC.

    I thought it might be a scheduled task as it repeats the process every few hours even after I remove onedrive as a source of music in Groove, it runs some process called music. I couldn't find a scheduled task anywhere.

    I don't use Groove at all, I would like it to just stop this behaviour as its not necessary. How do I do that?


    I asked about this on Microsoft forums and got no answer.

    Hi,
    The easiest way i have found to stop this is to go into Settings, then Privacy, then select Background Tasks from the left
    When in here toggle Groove to Off, this should stop it running in the background

    Hopefully it stays working

    I have a couple of Apps blocked from running in the background, they only do something if i physically open them up now
