Uninstall OneDrive

OneDrive is the most annoying and aggravating pieces of s**t software that Micro$oft forces down windows 10 user's throats. If you Google how to uninstall OneDrive you get a bunch of unhelpful articles from Microsoft that don't actually uninstall OneDrive. Eventually I found this article from Lifehacker which appeared to work.

If you need a file syncing application, I recommend Seafile or Dropbox.


Press the windows key + 'r' and type cmd before pressing enter, to open up the command prompt.

Kill the onedrive processs if it is running by executing:

taskkill /f /im OneDrive.exe

Then remove OneDrive with:

%SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\OneDriveSetup.exe /uninstall

If you are a 32bit Windows user (probably not), then the command would be:

%SystemRoot%\System32\OneDriveSetup.exe /uninstall
