    Yes, that worked for the Personal OneDrive icon, thank you! However, the link to OneDrive Business (with the new sync client) remains. Do you know if there's a similar technique one could use to remove that icon?
    As a heads-up, it did remove the Personal icon without requiring a reboot or even a refresh. I did do a full reboot though to see if it would also handle the OneDrive Business icon, but it did not.

    Great news so far.

    I'm afraid that I'm not sure about the business version. You might check in it's settings to see if there may be one to toggle it off.

    I downloaded the latest file to edit the registry in order to remove the one drive icon on the windows 10 desktop which worked perfectly for me. I am trying to do the same task for my dropbox icon on the desktop and was not able to find anywhere which registry entries I will need to edit. would it be possible for someone to help me or point me in the right direction? thanks
