    Two OneDrive Icons


    I have a blue one and a gray one. I'm used to the blue one, but the gray one shows a different UI. Where could it have arrived from? Is this another case like "Outlook" and "Outlook.com? Can I delete or merge the gray one? Edition Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1 Installed on ‎11/‎14/‎2020 OS build 19043.1055 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.2020.0

  2. OneDrive folder icon changed to plain

    Hi,

    Thank you for replying.

    I understand your concern and suggest you to Unlink OneDrive and run OneDrive setup
    again and check. Here is the steps:


    • Right-click the white OneDrive cloud icon in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar.

      (You might need to click the Show hidden icons arrow next to the notification area to see the
      OneDrive icon.)

    • Click Settings, and then click Unlink.

    • Follow the steps in the Welcome to OneDrive wizard to set up OneDrive.
    Do notify us if the issue still persists and we'll be glad to help.

    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.
