    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?
    Hello Roman,

    Did you restart the computer after disabling OneDrive integration?

    I just tested this in the latest build 14367, and OneDrive integration is disabled and removed from the navigation pane. When I open my "%UserProfile%\OneDrive" folder, it'll open like any other folder, but there's no online integration available.

    Hello Brink, thank you for your response. Yes I did restart the computer couple of times. Not only the form prompting me for OneDrive e-mail address pops up whenever OneDrive foder is opened, but also OneDrave manager keeps being launched into tray icon every time the computer starts. perhaps I should have done more actions.As said, I entered setting by rightclicking tray OneDrive icon, and unchecked "launch OneDriev when the computer starts" on Settings tab, and clicked "Cancel sync with OneDrive" or whatever the text translation in English is on the Account tab. I need the tray icon to disappear and prompting dialog after opening OneDrive folder to disappear aswell.

    No I did not , what should I click to actually use OPTION ONE? :-) Must say that I thought that stopping to use OneDrive will be as easy as to uncheck some settings, but it looks like more is involved.

    The Disable_OneDrive_Integration.reg file worked well. Thank you. Unfortunately, using the Enable_OneDrive_Integration.reg file does not work. Whilst it makes the change to the registry, OneDrive integration is not fully restored, irrespective of whether you restart or sign out then in again. The OneDrive icon has re-appeared in the Notification Area but not within the navigation pane of File Explorer. I'm using Win 10 Pro x64 (Version 1511, Build 10586.545).

    Hello Rick, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    See if OneDrive will show in the navigation pane again after opening the OneDrive app for Start Menu -> All apps.

    Hi Shawn - I've already tried that and checked in Task Manager that it was running. I didn't log into it though. I forgot to mention... I'm using a local account in the Administrators group, not a Microsoft Account.
