  1. OneDrive folders appear under 'ThisPC' dialog windows of many programs


    Hi everyone,

    whenever I open a dialog window in a program (i.e. to open/save a file) I get, under ThisPC all Onedrive folders before getting the Drives.
    Under This PC I cleaned all folders that are not drive, so it looks like:

    While my OneDrive folder (location: D:\OneDrive) :

    Well, these are my dialog windows for 3 different programs.

    The onedrive folders are before any drive unit.

    Thank you for any help

    cheers

    (Win 10 ver 1511)

  2. Folders in thisPC open to oneDrive

    Just recently, my HP laptop running windows 10 had the problem that the documents folder and the pictures folder in thisPC redirect to their respective oneDrive folders instead to my user folders. I have not been able to fix this yet in thisPC, but I was
    able to fix it in quick acces where I had the same problem. I did this by deleting unpinning the folders and then pinning the correct folders. However, I am unable to do this with thisPC.

  3. Folders in thisPC open to oneDrive

    I am having this problem on my desktop.....I have two sets of everything and it's very confusing. I just had to reformat my hard drive to upgrade to the latest Windows 10 upgrade. I have a new HP PC and it was a problem with the partition that caused me
    to upgrade.

    I want to totally delete OneDrive. I followed instructions, but it's still there. Microsoft technical support was useless and sent me to this website.

    Can anybody help?
