    iCloud Drive on Windows

    Windows and Icloud Mail etc: Failing to initialise

    Hi
    TomParkinson2
    ,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Could you please help me with the below questions:

    1. Are you aware of making any changes to the computer prior to the issue?
    2. Do you receive any error message when the spinner stops?

    I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:

    Method 1: Uninstall iCloud application.


    I would suggest you to Sign out from the iCloud account from the app, then uninstall the application.

    1. Press Windows
      and R key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Type appwiz.cpl and hit enter.
    3. Select the iCloud application and click on Uninstall.

    Method 2: Reinstall iCloud application.


    Step 1:

    I would suggest you toDownload
    the latest version of iCloud

    from the apple website. Follow the Onscreen instructions and install the application. For more information, check the article on
    Set up and use iCloud for Windows.


    Step 2:

    Once the installation is completed, tap on the Windows key on your keyboard, search for ICloud app. Right click on the app and click on
    Pin to taskbar.

    If you are using Surface PC, I would suggest you to follow steps mentioned in the Microsoft article about
    Using Surface with iPhone, iCloud,
    and iTunes.


    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.
