Enable or Disable Notifications when OneDrive Syncing is Paused in Windows 11

You can use OneDrive to sync files between your computer and the cloud, so you can get to your files from anywhere Рyour 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 use OneDrive to sync files on your PC, OneDrive will notify you by default when syncing is paused automatically when the device is in battery saver mode, and/or when the device is on a metered Ethernet or metered wireless network.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable notifications when OneDrive syncing is paused automatically for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
