How to Uninstall OneDrive

We previously posted how to disable OneDrive on your system, however if you'd like to uninstall it fully you can do so via the Control Panel. This means that your synchronised files will be removed from your system and you will have to re-install OneDrive for it to work again. Any existing files will remain in the OneDrive cloud, but they may be removed from your local system and will no longer sync.

  1. If you would like to fully uninstall OneDrive, please open the Settings panel by pressing ⊞ Win + I. Then select Apps and then Apps and Features:


  2. Now find OneDrive on the apps list and click the More Options menu. Then select Uninstall.


  3. You'll then be shown a series of prompts to complete the uninstallation process.
