  1. OneDrive setting to save screenshot is not working properly


    I had a problem because my files, recently, does not sync automatically in OneDrive. Because, i had other problems, too, i formatted my PC and re-installed everything from scratch. But this problem with autosave and sync files keeps on.


    I have found out that mo matter how many times, i check the box at OneDrive icon/ more/settings/Backup/Automatically save screenshots i capture, to OneDrive icon at taskbar, this options dis-selects by itself. I can not figure out what causes this. I suspect that this has to do with a service that changes or makes my PC accept this command after many times i set this option and, then after restarting PC it unchecks it.

    Could someone figure out why this occurs and whether it can be fixed? How else could i activate autosave once and for all?


    ***Original title: OneDrive command to sync automattically screenshots does not accept it***

    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings to OneDrive


    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings

    I am trying to save my files to OneDrive as a default. It has always worked as my default. For some reason, the default save location is now Recent. Something caused it to change. All default locations settings in Word Options, my computer and OneDrive settings are set to save to OneDrive. It appears my computer does not recognize these default settings.

    Do you have any suggestions how I can have my default locations for files change back to OneDrive?

    I use Windows 10. My computer is Dell XPS 8910.

    See Screenshots. Screenshot with Recent highlighted shows my current default location as Recent. OneDrive should be highlighted.

    Also, I reinstalled Microsoft Office.

  3. Save images/documents to my computer WITHOUT OneDrive being in the link

    We suggest that you change the Auto Save location to This PC only in OneDrive settings. To do so, follow these steps:



    If the OneDrive available in the taskbar, follow these steps:

    • On the right-hand corner at the bottom part beside time and date, click the up arrow to get the OneDrive icon and then right-click on it and then select
      Settings. Like the image shown below:
    • Go to the Auto Save tab, Change the Documents
      and Pictures location to This PC only and then make sure there no tick for
      Photos and videos and also for Screenshots. Like what’s shown below:
    • Click OK to apply the changes.
    • Go back to step 1, go to the Account tab and click the
      Unlink OneDrive
      .
    • Follow the step 1 once again and select Exit.


    If the OneDrive is no longer available in the taskbar, follow these steps:



    • Click the Start menu and type in OneDrive and then select the first result.
    • Sign in with your Microsoft account associated with your OneDrive and then follow the instructions to complete the login.
    • On the right-hand corner at the bottom part beside time and date, click the up arrow to get the OneDrive icon and then right-click on it and then select
      Settings. Like the image shown below:
    • Go to the Auto Save tab, Change the Documents
      and Pictures location to This PC only and then make sure there no tick for
      Photos and videos and also for Screenshots. Like what’s shown below:
    • Click OK to apply the changes.
    • Go back to step 1, go to the Account tab and click the
      Unlink OneDrive
      .
    • Follow the step 1 once again and select Exit.

    OneDrive setting to save screenshot is not working properly

    No more saving a screenshot when press ALT+PRINT after changing storage place

    Hello,

    There are several factors that may cause this issue. To better assist you, we suggest that you answer the following questions:

    • When you press the keys to take a screenshot, can you paste the image to paint or to any photo editor apps?
    • Have you made sure that the auto save screenshot has a check mark in OneDrive? (Right-click OneDrive icon in the notification area> Click Settings> In the Auto save tab> Put a check in
      Automatically save screenshots I capture to OneDrive box)
    • What other troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    In the meantime, you can also refer to the answer provided by
