Windows 10: Add or Remove OneDrive from Navigation Pane in Windows 10
Looks like a change has been made. I have updated the downloads in the tutorial to include this location as well now.
Oh my god... THANK YOU! I could not get the blasted thing to go away, until I found your message here.
Hello Joey, and welcome to Ten Forums.
The downloads in the tutorial include this to help.
I have a frustrating problem that I have wasted half a day on now.
I use both OneDrive personal and OneDrive for Business on my work computer. Both services work - they autostart on login and show the syncing clouds in the notification area (blue cloud for business and white cloud for personal) and my files are synced. So far so good.
The problem is the icons in the Navigation Pane of File Explorer. The OneDrive for Business is present but the OneDrive personal is not! I have checked these keys and ensured that "System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree"=dword:00000001:
And I checked that this key exists:
For some reason the OneDrive personal icon won't appear in the Navigation Pane. I tried to find where Windows 10 gets its system logs so that I could see if File Explorer emits a message when it starts up or when I change the value in Regedit for "System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree" but I can't find where File Explorer logs are (or if they exist).
Anyone have any ideas?
So my problem is quite similar and I know when it started. All was fine until I moved the OneDrive folder to another drive. Everything works just fine, but the OneDrive Icon / Link disappeared from the Windows Explorer Navigation Pane (Windows 10 Slow Ring / Standard Consumer Build, up to date). No matter what I do and I've followed the very same instructions to ADD it back, but no joy. I have unlinked the account, disabled OneDrive, re-enabled, set up OneDrive from scratch pointing to the new drive location... nothing has worked.
I'm thinking it has something to do with being on a different physical drive other than the system drive.
Has anyone run into this before and have come up with a fix? Any help is very much appreciated.
I believe that OneDrive Business replaces the personal OneDrive.
If you like for now, you could "Pin to Quick access" your personal %UserProfile%\OneDrive folder to have available in the Navigation Pane under the Quick access group.
Quick access - Pin or Unpin Locations in Windows 10
I do have the location pinned to Quick Access for now, but that's not what I want. Ideally I want the typically standard behavior with OneDrive in the Nav Pane just like 'This PC' and 'Network'.
Also, the OneDrive application now handles OneDrive (personal) as well as OneDrive for Business and now lately even SharePoint Team Sites (pretty well, too) so no longer are there two separate applications for personal and business, just one app for both. As a result, synchronization on either side is finally working pretty well again!
With the latest Cumulative update just released today, I'm hoping that will correct the issue and I'm about to give that a try. If not, I guess I'm holding out for the Creator's Update to do the job. We will see.
Thanks. - Jim
