    OneDrive was not Desktop version but Mobile


    I have just got OneDrive to work correctly, with considerable help fom a OneDrive Support advisor. It seems the root of my problems were that for some reason my PC had the cut down version of OneDrive installed, instead of the Desktop version. For a while my misunderstanding of this made it difficult to install the Desktop version in place of the Mobile version. Does anyone know how this could have happened? The Mobile OneDrive will have replaced the Desktop OneDrive, which had been working OK in the past. As I have neglected to use OneDrive until recently I had not been aware that this had happened

    :)

  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 was not Desktop version but Mobile :)

    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.
