    The googled way I found to pause onedrive:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/how-to-cancel-or-stop-sync-in-onedrive-4885c27e-3d89-4d69-be75-2646c71367d3... doesn't work for me. It says to find the Onedrive cloud icon on the task bar and right-click on it. Well, I have a Onedrive icon there, but it looks more like an open folder with a small cloud on it. When I click on it, it opens File Explorer. When I right-click on it instead, I get a small pop-up with two items, one with that says OneDrive with the cloud icon, and another "Unpin from the Taskbar". If I click on the OneDrive clou

    Where is "Pause" on OneDrive?

    i get the menu you show: "view online", "settings", etc.

    But "Pause" is not on the menu.

    Please see the pic i posted.

    In my previous installation of OneDrive, OneDrive automatically paused sync'ing on a metered connection. Now it does not. It only suggests that i pause it myself. Plz see image in my first post, above.

  3. 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.

    cannot pause onedrive

    Onedrive is pausing - why?

    Hi

    First step removed the onedrive icon

    This: %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe

    -opened the onedrive setup map (!) only.

    I moved back to the onedrive map and clicked onedrive.exe.

    It started, and at once its paused.

    I need no sync at all for the moment, I use onedrive only for easy method

    to make schreendumps.

    Perhaps ite better to find a working program for that.

    I will try to reinstall onedrive but cant understand why its needed, the win10 is

    not used much since installed, fully updated and no virus detected by Defender.

    Regards /Hans
