    OneDrive Search


    I have many folders in my OneDrive.

    When I open my browser and go to www.OneDrive.com, I see all of my folders (so far so good).

    In my Music folder (just one of many folders), I would like to search for all .mp3 files.

    So I open my Music folder, and I enter information in the search box.

    But OneDrive searches all of my folders. I just want to search just in one folder.

    How can I search in just one folder?

    Thank you.

    :)

  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 Search :)

    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.
