    How to Enable or Disable OneDrive Integration in Windows 10

    information   Information
    In Windows 10, you can easily save your files to OneDrive and get to them from any device, like your PC, tablet, or phone.

    OneDrive is free online storage at OneDrive.com that comes with your Microsoft account. Itís like an extra hard drive thatís available from any of the devices you use. You no longer need to email files to yourself or carry around (and possibly lose) a USB flash drive. Instead, whether youíre on your laptop and working on a presentation, viewing photos from your last family vacation on your new tablet, or on your phone reviewing your shopping list, you can get to your files in OneDrive.


    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable OneDrive integration to allow or prevent apps and features from working with files on OneDrive for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able enable or disable OneDrive integration.

    Note   Note
    If you disable OneDrive integration:
    • Users canít open the OneDrive app.
    • The OneDrive app will not run at startup for all users.
    • Windows Store apps canít access OneDrive using the WinRT API.
    • OneDrive doesnít appear in the navigation pane in File Explorer for all users.
    • OneDrive files arenít kept in sync with the cloud.
    • Users canít automatically upload photos and videos from the camera roll folder.


    This will not prevent users from being able to access files on their OneDrive online at OneDrive.com.

    This will not affect syncing settings.

    Hello Dede, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Are you using Windows 10, or Windows 8.1 as in your specs?

    Which option in the tutorial are you using?

    Did you restart the computer afterwards?

    Dede,

    Odd. It should have removed OneDrive from your navigation pane as well. If you like, you can also use the tutorial below to remove OneDrive from the navigation pane.

    Due to the recent changes in storage size policy I decided to move to Dropbox. I clicked OneDrive icon on the taskbar, in the settings I disabled "run OneDrive when computer starts" and I also disabled the OneDrive sync option. My plan is to use "C:\Users\<user>\OneDrive" folder as DropBox folder. However, every time I open "C:\Users\<user>\OneDrive" in explorer, the window pops up that prompts me to enter OneDrive login information.. Hehehe, I certainly dont want to use OneDrive anymore, how do I get rid of this?
