Uninstall OneDrive From Apps & Features in Windows 10 Home
Since Windows 10’s Creators Update, you can now easily uninstall OneDrive like you would any other desktop program.
Only Windows 10 Home users should use the registry file method.
If you are using Windows 10 Professional, Enterprise, or Education, skip these step and use the Group Policy Editor method instead.
The problem with uninstalling OneDrive this way is that it leaves an empty OneDrive folder in the File Explorer sidebar. If you are happy with that, you do not need to proceed as OneDrive has been removed and is no longer doing anything.
However, if the empty OneDrive folder is a problem, you will need to do the following:
Remove the OneDrive Folder From File Explorer by Editing the Registry
Disable OneDrive with the Local Group Policy Editor in Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise
If you are using Windows 10 Professional, Enterprise, or Education, the easiest way is to disable and hide OneDrive is by using the Local Group Policy Editor.
NOTE: If you are on a company network, make sure you check with your admin first. If your work computer is part of a domain, it is likely that it is part of a domain group policy that will supersede the local group policy, anyway.
