    How to Add a OneDrive Open or Close Context Menu in Windows 10


    OneDrive is a cloud-based storage service where you can view, browse, upload, and share the files you saved online to OneDrive.

    By default, choose to sync in OneDrive on your PC is automatically kept in sync with your online OneDrive.

    This tutorial will show you how to add a 'Open/Close OneDrive' desktop context menu that will allow users to quickly toggle to open and close OneDrive for syncing as needed in Windows 10. This can be handy if there are times you do not want OneDrive on your PC to sync until you open OneDrive next.

    While you must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove the context menu, all users on the PC will be able to use the context menu.


    How does the context menu work?

    When you right click or press and hold on your desktop and click/tap on the Open/Close OneDrive context menu, it will check to see if the OneDrive.exe process is currently running or not.

    If the OneDrive.exe process is running, then the process will be killed (end task) to close OneDrive and stop syncing with your online OneDrive. You will get the notification below to let you know that OneDrive is now closed. (If you have OneDrive set to start when you sign in to Windows, then OneDrive will automatically start again after you sign in to Windows next.)

  2. Windows 10 - OneDrive

    Right click on the app and one of the properties has an option to not automatically start it. Uncheck, restart the computer, and it should stop. If you want to go another step further, find the OneDrive app in the start menu, right click on it and uninstall.

    If that is still insufficient, there is a batch uninstaller for OneDrive available online. I can copy the code here if you need it.

  3. Custom context menu entries

    So, just throwing this out there, in case somone knows.

    I have added a custom context menu entry for the program rightload, since by default the menu is broken in vistax64.

    It works pefect with single files, but when I select mutiple files and try to open, I get mutiple instances of the program (which makes sense), here is my entry:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Rightload\Rightload.exe --server=1 --autostart %1

    So the %1 passes the filename to the program, and when I select multiple files it is just opening multiple instances of rightload each with a different file.

    What I'd like to do is be able to pass a list of the files selected to the program. Since I know it is capable of uploading multiple files from the context menu, all in one instance.

    So, is there something I can pass besides %1 that will do this? I have looked around and can't seem to find an answer anywhere... *Frown Add Open or Close OneDrive Context Menu in Windows 10 :(

    Add Open or Close OneDrive Context Menu in Windows 10

    Windows 10 - OneDrive

    This is Windows 10 Pro... Enterprise is an entirely different deal and I'm sure I won't have problems that route, but I'm not forking over more $ to dipshit developers. The only thing I can think of is un-linking my Office 365 accounts within Office, but that defeats the purpose of accessing the files ONLINE and managing them from there. I have two alumni accounts, not a single problem in Windows 7/8 until M$shit devs decided to integrate Onedrive. I've deleted, renamed, set read-only to "msosync.exe," ... but windows continues to add it again and again, and NOW I just noticed it's now linking to groove.exe, instead of onedrive. Sooo fn annoying!



    Onedrive on Windows 10 is not an 'app' it is integrated. Plus I don't fool around with the Windows Store thoughtless developer child bullshit. Windows Store ought to be completely removed from the Windows platform all together. Also I do not intend to completely remove Onedrive, it defeats the purpose... the purpose is to REMOVE it from Windows Explorer navigation and startup.

    Windows 10 - OneDrive

    [/quote] Click to expand... Sorry, but I think you're confused and keep referring to Onedrive. There is a big difference between the consumer version of Onedrive business O365 version. I do not have the consumer version of Onedrive installed... it is Onedrive for Business. Also, this script is for "Onedrive" .... not Onedrive for Business. Thanks anyway.

    OneDrive (for Business) built-in Windows 10 differences?

    No thanks for providing a non-rant version. I ought to recruit about 20 million people and walk down to Microsoft headquarters and do them in. Tired of Microsoft forcing their childish development skills on the masses.
