Step-by-step: Remove OneDrive from Windows 10

OneDriveOneDrive is the storage service from Microsoft that comes installed with Windows 10. It also will be started on computer boot, resulting in a slower boot time. So as myself, you may wish to remove OneDrive from Windows 10.

With a couple of steps, you can completely disable OneDrive from your Windows installation luckily.

Step 1 – Open a text editor, such as notepad and paste the following text into it. If you have a 32-bit operating system:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}]
"System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree"=dword:00000000

If you have a 64-bit operating system:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}]
"System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}]
"System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree"=dword:00000000

Step 2 – Save this file as onedrive.reg somewhere you can find it back easily, such as on your desktop.

Step 3 – Now open that file and click Run. Click OK on the window prompt.
