I’m a real fan of Windows 10, I think Microsoft have done a great job. I’ve been supporting a number of local businesses transition from Windows 7 and they too have nothing but praise for the new system, even on older systems.
I also like OneDrive as a cloud storage solution however due to some bugs with older Microsoft Office files I prefer to use Google Drive. Unfortunately though Microsoft has embedded OneDrive pretty solid into Windows 10 and they don’t offer a simple option to disable it.
This isn’t difficult to do and below I’ve provided steps to completely remove OneDrive from your system – these steps can be used on any version of Windows 10 at the time of writing.
- Click the Start button and type “cmd” without the quotation marks.
- Right-click the Command Prompt app and select “Run as administrator”.
- Enter the command below and press return to disable the OneDrive process.
taskkill /f /im OneDrive.exe
- Now we will remove the OneDrive app itself using either of the commands below, the top command is for 32-Bit systems and the bottom for 64-Bit systems.
