    After unsyncing pc from onedrive,


    I sync'd my files to one drive. I couldn't use some of my apps. I unsynced onedrive from pc. now all my folders show under the user folder \onedrive and are read only and will not allow me to change. How can I get my files so they are not read only? I did right click on the folder and unchecked the read only flag and update subfolders click appy and ok. still read only. PLEASE HELP

    :)

    UNsync OneDrive

    I just got a Windows 10 Pro Dell XPS. In Windows Explorer, when contents of This PC are displayed, what are the 'pushpins' next to Desktop, Downloads, Documents, etc (in the left pane)?


    When I transferred all my files to the Documents folder, OneDrive started to upload them. I do NOT want them all uploaded to OneDrive. I closed OneDrive, ended up in Settings somewhere and unsynced it. It continues to upload all my files when I turn the pc on again. This is a major problem here

    Unsynced OneDrive Folders

    Folders I've chosen not to sync to my computer from One Drive will not appear in File Explorer. Combined with the disappearance of the OneDrive App, the only way to access unsynced OneDrive folders is by opening a browser. Am I doing something wrong?
