  1. One Drive-Windows 10 - I want it gone!


    I just bought my Lenovo desktop and One Drive was activated. I don't know diddly about. It's backing up things, red Xs everywhere, syncing, I have dual folders and files, etc. I do not like it and I would like to do the following:

    *Retrieve or delete all of the files that were backed up on it;

    **Eliminate One Drive completely!

    *No backups or anything to backup my computer. I have Drop Box and software to do my backups. Microsoft can't seem to make anything easy.

    I just want the standard C drive without any backup software except what I want to install.

    Please help this is driving me nuts looking at and trying to find my files.

    Specs and screen shot available.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.
