I just removed onedrive (and unlinked my pc/account) from my computer however there is still a really irritating thing that I cant seem to remove and that is Onedrive is (still) in the path of my files (ex: Documents)


Is there any way to remove this? Do I maybe need to reinstall Onedrive and do something in the settings?

Kind regards.


You may examine and modify the two paths, system/global and user, by

Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings > Advanced tab > Environment Variables button

Click on the OneDrive path in the corresponding section, then click the Delete button. When finished click OK.

You might need to logout and login for the update to take effect.

    I did what you said but it didn't work. I still have onedrive within my paths (ex C:\Users\$user\OneDrive\Documents) – R_ Flintstone Oct 8 '18 at 7:35
  • What you report sounds impossible. Try it again, but only when booting in Safe mode. – harrymc Oct 8 '18 at 7:56
