  2. How to uninstall OneDrive from Windows 10

We help your business Grow!

One Drive come pre installed with MS Windows 10 and it’s a great tool for having all your files on all your devices.
If you don’t use it then, like anything else, it is just more clutter that you can live without.

Most software can easily be removed from the Programs and Features applett in the contorl panel, but OneDrive is not listed there and there is no obvious way to remove it.

This guide will show you how to very quickly and cleanly uninstall OneDrive 🙂

Here we go.onedrive

  1. Open the contect menu by hitting the Windows Key (the key with the four boxes) and the ‘X’ key – this is often referred to as’WinX’
  2. Left click on the ‘Command Prompt’ to open the command window.
  3. Type the following (64 bit machines)
    taskkill /f /im OneDrive.exe    [Enter]
    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\OneDriveSetup.exe /uninstall      [Enter]
  4. Type the following if you have a 32 bit machine (not commonly used anymore)
    taskkill /f /im OneDrive.exe    [Enter]
    C:\Windows\System32\OneDriveSetup.exe /uninstall      [Enter]

Note: It won’t hurt if you type in the 32bit instruction on a 64bit computer, you’ll just get an error.

There won’t be any notification regarding the success of the OneDrive removalm, it will just be gone.

That’s it, happy uninstalling 🙂
