Can I turn off OneDrive in Windows 10?
In this post, I will show you how to disable one drive in Windows 10. Fast and easy.
How to uninstall OneDrive in Windows 10
Since there is no easy way to uninstall OneDrive from Windows 10, we will use the command line to remove it. Before doing this, we need to close the OneDrive application.
To do this, right-click the OneDrive icon in the taskbar and select the Quit OneDrive option.
This action will bring up a confirmation window. Just click the Close OneDrive button to exit the OneDrive application. This action will also exclude the OneDrive process. If you are not sure, you can check the same in the “Processes” section of Task Manager.
After exiting the OneDrive application, click Cortana search and type cmd, and then at the command prompt, click Run as Administrator.
After opening the command prompt, enter the following command, depending on the architecture of your system.
If you are using a 32-bit system, use the command below.
If you are using a 64-bit system, use the command below.
As soon as you execute the command, Windows will delete the OneDrive application forever.
The command line will not generate a confirmation message. In fact, if you open Windows Explorer, you can no longer find OneDrive in it. You can also try searching for it in the Start menu.
You can also now safely delete all your OneDrive folders elsewhere if you don’t want to have the rest of the application.
To do this, open Windows Explorer, select the View tab, and select the Hidden items checkbox. After the hidden folders have been canceled, open the ProgramData folder and delete the Microsoft OneDrive folder.
Now go to your profile folder and delete the OneDrive folder. If you are wondering where the location is, it will be like your C:\Users\Username.
In the same folder, open the application data folder and open the local folder and then go to Microsoft. Delete the OneDrive folder.
If you have problems deleting a folder, restart your system first, then try deleting it again. You have successfully removed OneDrive and its folders from Windows 10.
