  1. Unlink PC from OneDrive


    All my folders including my desktop are linked to OneDrive. My local PC User folder (Local Disk (C)>Users>user folder) does not have a desktop folder. If I unlink OneDrive, will a desktop folder be created?

    :)

    Hi,

    We apologize for the delay response and thank you for the additional details.

    Upon analyzing this matter, it seems that
    OneDrive is having issues in syncing your
    Microsoft Account that causes the issue to occur. We suggest you to try these following methods and check if there's any changes:

    Method 1: add/remove your account in OneDrive.

    To do unlink your account, follow these steps:


    • Right-click on the
      cloud icon
      on the lower right of your screen.

    • Choose
      Settings.

    • On the
      Account tab, click on
      Unlink this PC.

    • Choose
      Unlink Account.

    To add your account, just run OneDrive again the enter your credentials.

    Method 2: reset OneDrive.

    To reset OneDrive, follow these steps:


    • Press
      Windows key + R.

    • Type
      %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset

    • Click
      OK.

    • Make sure that the
      cloud iconor the
      OneDrive icon
      on the bottom right
      disappears.

    • If the icon doesn't
      re-appear after a few minutes, press
      Windows key + R
      and type
      %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe

    Let us know how it goes.
