    How to Enable or Disable OneDrive Integration in Windows 10


    In Windows 10, you can easily save your files to OneDrive and get to them from any device, like your PC, tablet, or phone.

    OneDrive is free online storage at OneDrive.com that comes with your Microsoft account. Its like an extra hard drive thats available from any of the devices you use. You no longer need to email files to yourself or carry around (and possibly lose) a USB flash drive. Instead, whether youre on your laptop and working on a presentation, viewing photos from your last family vacation on your new tablet, or on your phone reviewing your shopping list, you can get to your files in OneDrive.

    If you disable OneDrive integration:
    • Users can’t open the OneDrive app.
    • The OneDrive app will not run at startup for all users.
    • Windows Store apps can’t access OneDrive using the WinRT API.
    • OneDrive doesn’t appear in the navigation pane in File Explorer for all users.
    • OneDrive files aren’t kept in sync with the cloud.
    • Users can’t automatically upload photos and videos from the camera roll folder.
    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable OneDrive integration to allow or prevent apps and features from working with files on OneDrive for all users in Windows 10.

    *Warning You must be signed in as an administrator to be able enable or disable OneDrive integration.

    *note This will not prevent users from being able to access files on their OneDrive online at OneDrive.com.

    *note This will not affect syncing settings.

    Hello Dede, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Are you using Windows 10, or Windows 8.1 as in your specs?

    Which option in the tutorial are you using?

    Did you restart the computer afterwards?

  10. Due to the recent changes in storage size policy I decided to move to Dropbox. I clicked OneDrive icon on the taskbar, in the settings I disabled "run OneDrive when computer starts" and I also disabled the OneDrive sync option. My plan is to use "C:\Users\<user>\OneDrive" folder as DropBox folder. However, every time I open "C:\Users\<user>\OneDrive" in explorer, the window pops up that prompts me to enter OneDrive login information.. Hehehe, I certainly dont want to use OneDrive anymore, how do I get rid of this?

    Hello Roman, *Smile

    Did you restart the computer after disabling OneDrive integration?

    I just tested this in the latest build 14367, and OneDrive integration is disabled and removed from the navigation pane. When I open my "%UserProfile%\OneDrive" folder, it'll open like any other folder, but there's no online integration available.

  12. Hello Brink, thank you for your response. Yes I did restart the computer couple of times. Not only the form prompting me for OneDrive e-mail address pops up whenever OneDrive foder is opened, but also OneDrave manager keeps being launched into tray icon every time the computer starts. perhaps I should have done more actions.As said, I entered setting by rightclicking tray OneDrive icon, and unchecked "launch OneDriev when the computer starts" on Settings tab, and clicked "Cancel sync with OneDrive" or whatever the text translation in English is on the Account tab. I need the tray icon to disappear and prompting dialog after opening OneDrive folder to disappear aswell.

  14. No I did not , what should I click to actually use OPTION ONE? Enable or Disable OneDrive Integration :) Must say that I thought that stopping to use OneDrive will be as easy as to uncheck some settings, but it looks like more is involved.
