when i installed windows 11, i had to create a microsoft account. After the installation, I created a local account and deleted the microsoft account.

Now when I want to save a file in Micosoft Word, I get the proposal to save it in One Drive and I can see the email address I used during the installation of windows 11(screenshot).

I already deleted the microsoft online account. I also uninstalled OneDrive.

How to delete all references (email) to the account that was used during the installation?

To remove OneDrive from Save As :

  • Open Word
  • Go to menu File > Account and ensure that you're not still signed in to the Microsoft Account
  • Go to menu File > Options > Save and uncheck "Show additional places for saving even if sign-in may be required"
  • Click OK
  • Restart Word.
