    You can hide it via Settings (modern app) -> System -> Notifications & actions -> Turn system icons on and off

    Edit: Meh. Think I mistook it for something else when I had a look there earlier. :\

    right click on the icon and go to settings then uncheck start when computer starts. Then exit the application and reboot. No more onedrive.

    This only works if you set OneDrive up as the option is shaded grey if you don't set it up, what I did if you do not want to go through the steps of setting it up is either right click the start button and select Task Manager or press Ctrl+Alt+Del and bring up Task Manager, click on the Startup tab, find Microsoft OneDrive and right click on it and Disable it, right click on OneDrive icon in Taskbar and exit, next startup it will be disabled. ;)

    Open gpedit.msc under computer policy /windows components /onedrive disable sync. Then remove it from startup.

    Any ideas how to remove this bloatware's icon from file explorer? I guess Microsoft will never learn from past lawsuits, shoving useless apps down end users' throats.:mad:

    Interesting...in previous builds I noticed OneDrive was uninstallable from Programs & Features...not anymore! If you download it and reinstall it in 9926, do you get an entry in P&F, I wonder?
