  1. OneDrive folder still shows up even after uninstalling the app on Windows PC


    It's been over a month since I uninstalled OneDrive on my Windows 10 PC, yet I've noticed lately that I still see the OneDrive folder at the location "C:\Users\microsoftosuser\OneDrive" with nearly 50 GB size when checked the properties. I'd appreciate if you could help me with this.

    :)

  2. 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.

    Windows 10 - OneDrive

    Anyone know how to remove "OneDrive - For Business" from the Explorer navigation panel? I've tried just about every registry modification, and windows policy for "Onedrive" but they only seem to work for the consumer product, not for onedrive for business.

    The onedrive product alone is so damn annoying and continues to load itself upon startup, even when it's explicitly remove from startup. It continues to automatically load and unload itself from within the startup folder... while I'm actively watching it load itself into the startup folder.

    OneDrive folder still shows up even after uninstalling the app on Windows PC

    Unable to uninstall Onedrive For Business

    OneDrive can be uninstalled from some versions of Windows 10:

    1. Select the Start button, type Programs in the search box, and then select Add or remove programs in the list of results.
    2. Under Apps & features, find and select Microsoft OneDrive, and then select Uninstall.

    As OneDrive is built in to some versions of Windows and can't be uninstalled. As a workaround, you can hide it. Reference “Turn off or uninstall OneDrive” for detail steps:
    Turn off, disable, or uninstall OneDrive
