    How do I reinstall OneDrive?


    OK so I installed and have been running W10 today. I noticed that I did not have a Quick Access link to my OneDrive. So I went to Programs and Features and found it in the programs list. I clicked on it thinking it would open up and allow me to change the settings. OOPs! It uninstalled OneDrive from the programs list. Now I can't find it anywhere on my computer, other than when I log in on the web page.

    So can I reinstall OneDrive and have it show in my file manager as a drive like it used to in WIN 8.1?

    I hope you get an answer. I have no icon in the system tray and my files won't sync at all. It's like it just disappeared, but I still see it in File Explorer.

    Did you ever find a solution? Microsoft Support can't help me, and they're saying I have to completely reinstall Windows 10. Only thing is, I'll lose about 60GB worth of apps this time as well as the ability to revert back to 8.1.

    Funny how Windows didn't automatically turn on File Recovery or create a system restore point, too.

    I'm so upset. I miss my OneDrive.

    I have had no help yet. I have had a couple replies from others with the same issue.

    Still hoping someone will chime in with a way to reinstall or repair OneDrive.

    Not that it's any help, but I have exactly the same problem. I also don't want to reinstall Windows 10 as I've spent weeks getting it to look like my old Windows 7 setup. I'm amazed and annoyed that Restore Point creation is disabled by default in Windows 10 as that would have sorted the problem easily. Maybe Microsoft will provide a tool to reinstall OneDrive without having to reinstall the whole OS.

    You cannot uninstall onedrive it is part of Windows 10, but if you have problems this is one way to sort them well it worked for me!

    You should have a Onedrive icon in the notification part of you taskbar if you do not right click on the taskbar then properties find Onedrive and turn it on.

    Now right click on the icon and go to settings then unlink this computer this will take everything to do with Onedrive off your computer.

    Then right click again and this time link this computer go through the set up instructions you can now change where you want to put your files and also what files to sync.

    It could take a while to download them all depending on how big your files are. But you should now have the Onedrive link back in explorer and all your files where you want them!

    Having the same issue. When I click "select which icons show on the taskbar" the settings window crashes to the desktop without presenting any options for making changes.

    In my case, the Onedrive icon is missing even when showing all icons. I think the damage was done by an over-zealous PC Cleanup utility. I was hoping that there would be a service I could start or a registry hack that would get the icon back.

    Mine does the same when i click on the select icons link must be a bug but you don't need to go ther to activate the Onedrive icon.

    Just scroll down till you can see Onedrive and make sure it is on

    Ooops wrong you do need to go there mine was working yesterday but not now weird!!
