  1. File Explorer latency / OneDrive


    I recently seem to be getting the Windows wait cursor/latency on my Windows 10 Surface when I use File Explorer to either open a folder or left mouse-click or . I use OneDrive and have it set up so all my "Documents" folders and files I marked as "Always keep on this device" so I have better access to all my files if the internet or network I use goes down.


    But if I open Microsoft Word and go to a file, I get nearly instant results. So the problem appears to be with File Explorer, and it seems to have started in recent weeks or days.


    For information, I also have OneDrive on my iPad and iPhone.


    Any assistance on source of problem and how to fix would be appreciated.

    :)

  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.

    OneDrive missing in File Explorer after Fall Creator update

    Hi Jon,

    The following are steps that you may follow in order to see OneDrive in the left pane of the File Explorer:

    • Right-click OneDrive in the system tray and choose
      Settings.
    • On the Microsoft OneDrive window that opens, click on the Settings
      tab.
    • If you see that “Files On-Demand” option at the bottom, make sure it’s selected. If you don’t see this option, you need to download the latest version of the OneDrive desktop app
      here.
    • Open OneDrive settings again after installing if needed and repeat steps 1 to 3. Then, navigate to the
      Account tab.
    • Click the Choose folders button and the Choose Folders window should appear.
    • Choose “Make all files available” or whatever folders you wish. Doing so
      will not download the files and folders, it will just make them visible in File Explorer.
    • Click OK.
    • Wait for the changes to apply.

    Let us know if you need any other help.
