How to Disable One-Drive at Startup

Although OneDrive is an extremely useful tool that is free with your Windows license, some people may choose to use a different cloud storage provider or maybe none at all. In either case, you are probably going to want to disable the OneDrive application, so it stops running in the background every time you load up your computer.

  1. First we need to click on the in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, so we can then select “Help & Settings” and then “Settings” on the following menu that appears.
  2. This will then take us to a separate menu where we want to navigate to the “Settings” tab as we will automatically be put in the “Account” tab. Once in “Settings”, we need to simply make sure the “Start OneDrive automatically when I sign in to Windows” is deselected.
