    What happens when you disable/uninstall OneDrive?


    I know how to disable OneDrive but wonder what will take its place in the defaults for Word, Excel and Oulook's PST files among many other apps.

    Thanks.

  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.

    Unable to uninstall Onedrive For Business

    OneDrive can be uninstalled from some versions of Windows 10:

    1. Select the Start button, type Programs in the search box, and then select Add or remove programs in the list of results.
    2. Under Apps & features, find and select Microsoft OneDrive, and then select Uninstall.

    As OneDrive is built in to some versions of Windows and can't be uninstalled. As a workaround, you can hide it. Reference “Turn off or uninstall OneDrive” for detail steps:
    Turn off, disable, or uninstall OneDrive

    One Drive Uninstall or Disable


    Won't work.
    It will lead you to Programs and Features.
    But, you won't find Onedrive listed there because it is part of the operating system. It cannot be uninstalled.
    Disable is the only option available.
