    Onedrive roam desktop

    Hi, I’m looking to use OneDrive to “roam” the Desktop, my docs etc between computers on the domain, similar to how roaming profiles work. I can see that you can sync files from your desktop to OneDrive but when you log onto a new computer and login to OneDrive the files don’t appear on the new desktop. Is it possible for the synced files to appear on the new desktop without user interaction?

  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.

    Hello Francis, Onedrive roam desktop :)

    Doing the steps below to install the latest version of OneDrive may be able to help.

    1. Download and install the latest version of OneDrive that's rolling out with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
    2. Restart your computer.
    3. After your computer restarts, select the Start button, search for “OneDrive”, and then select the OneDrive desktop app.
    4. When OneDrive Setup starts, enter your personal account, or your work or school account, and then select Sign in.
