    Onedrive "Where are my files" shortcut


    OK I made the big mistake of trying to setup OneDrive this morning and now can't fix a problem . OneDrive was syncing and then told me i don't have enough space. When I stopped the sync I now have a link on my desktop saying "Where are my Files". This seems to be the only way I can get to files like my pictures.

    I'm not sure how to fix this. All I want to do is turn off OneDrive and go back to having all my file in the "normal" place with no "where are my files" shortcut"

    Question if I unlink the account will that fix it?

    :)

    • Go to the folder C:\Windows\System32 and sort by file type.

    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.
