Enable or Disable OneDrive in Windows 11

OneDrive is built-in to Windows 11 by default.

With OneDrive, you can sync files between your computer and the cloud, so you can get to your files from anywhere – your computer, your mobile device, and even through the OneDrive website at OneDrive.com. If you add, change, or delete a file or folder in your OneDrive folder, the file or folder is added, changed, or deleted on the OneDrive website and vice versa. You can work with your synced files directly in File Explorer and access your files even when you’re offline. Whenever you’re online, any changes that you or others make will sync automatically.

If you like, you can disable OneDrive in Windows 11.

If you disable OneDrive integration:

  • Users can’t open the OneDrive app.
  • The OneDrive app will not run at startup for all users.
  • Windows Store apps can’t access OneDrive using the WinRT API.
  • OneDrive doesn’t appear in the navigation pane in File Explorer for all users.
  • OneDrive files aren’t kept in sync with the cloud.
  • Users can’t automatically upload photos and videos from the camera roll folder.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the OneDrive feature for all users in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
