    How do I re-enable OneDrive in Win 10?


    Hi all

    I deactivated OneDrive when I installed Win 10 last year as I was paying for Dropbox Pro and didn't need OneDrive duplicating cloud services. I've now cancelled my Dropbox sub as I have a year free of OneDrive, but I can't work out how to re-enable OneDrive in Windows. I have googled it but I can't find anything that actually works.

    I'm reluctant to have to do a full OS reinstall unless absolutely neccessary....!

    Thanks

    :)

  2. How do I re-enable fast user switching in Windows 10 Home?

    OK - it took me a little while to get around to it, but I ran a full reinstall of windows 10 - I chose the "keep my files and applications" option. Now that the reinstall is done, I'm finding that I still cannot use fast user switching. So I'm still
    stuck.

  3. How do I re-enable fast user switching in Windows 10 Home?

    I installed Windows 10 Home (upgraded from Windows 8.1) a few months ago. When I first installed, I could click the start menu, then click on the account picture at the top, and it would give me the option to log into a different account on the PC without
    signing out the one I am currently in. I think that's called fast user switching.

    Recently, and for some unknown reason, that option just stopped showing up. When I click on the account picture, I still get the option to lock, sign out, or change account settings when I click on it - but no option to sign into one of the other accounts
    on the pc directly from there.

    I've read several tutorials that suggested I just needed to either:

    a) Disable the "Hide entry points for fast user switching" setting in group policy, or...

    b) Restart the fast user switching service in services

    I'm using Home, so, of course, I don't have GPEdit.msc, but I found a place that let me download it. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a setting for "Hide entry points for fast user switching" under the Logon folder. It's just not there.

    And, when I go into services, I don't find any service relating to fast user switching at all. Can someone tell me what caused this to spontaneously disappear, and how to get it back?
