Windows 10: Add or Remove OneDrive from Navigation Pane in Windows 10
As mentioned, I have previously changed the registry manually to make the settings "0" in both places it occurs - which is still the case. There must be something else controlling the icon in the non-admin account.
I'm not sure why it's not working for you unless you may have some 3rd party tweaking type program installed that may be overriding it.
Removed OneDrive but the subfolders won't go away
Good morning. I have followed these instructions and it appears that I have partially been successful in removing OneDrive. Here is my problem.
Under This PC, the main OneDrive folder keeps coming back and the Pictures, Documents, and Videos folders will show OneDrive in the location. When I try to move them to the respective folders on my computer, I get a message that Access is Denied. I can't move the target and I can't get rid of them. So whenever I click on them, I get an error message since I (partially?) removed One Drive. How can I get this infernal problem to go away?

One Drive Removed from File Explorer, Now from Office?
Thanks this worked perfectly, after trying and failing with other tweaks. Now does anyone know how to remove it from Office 2016 applications? I've misplaced many file with this frustrating default save, especially when in a hurry.
If you're not using OneDrive, then you could also use the tutorial below to completely disable and remove OneDrive to help. You would still be able to access OneDrive online via a web browser though.

thanks for the advice regarding the other tutorial.
I tried the reg file (and verified the correct setting with regedit), but onedrive is still shown after reboot.
Interestingly OneNote (the Universal App) is also still able to sync to OneNote.
I thought this would be gone, or is OneNote NOT using the WinRT API?
Another option you could use is to uninstall the "Microsoft OneDrive" app in Settings using OPTION ONE below.
Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10
OneNote would be a separate app.
I gave this a shot within my Virtualbox, but that didn't work either.
The icon was changed to default exe icon (like old DOS exe files that have no icon), but the entry was still there.
But I found the right registry entry
I had to delete the following registry entry completely:
Now OneDrive is not shown in any of the previous positions.
Thanks for your advise!
