OneDrive in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 can be disabled through your computer's Local Group Policy Editor. This doesn't remove OneDrive from your PC, but it stops it from syncing with the cloud or connecting with other apps, and removes it from the navigation pane in File Explorer.

Follow these steps below.

  • Press (Windows Key) + R to open Run box

  • In the Local Group Policy Editor, in the folder list under Local Computer Policy, navigate the folders to Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > OneDrive.
