Love to play with Windows 11 and 10. Suggestion - Going for Registry change or system files edit then remember to take a backup or create a restore point before Starting.

  1. Hello Den, the file location has been changed with versions. Now it is located at C:WindowsSysWOW64. Go there and look for OneDriveSetup.exe. Or you can simply paste “C:WindowsSysWOW64OneDriveSetup.exe” in the Run dialog box and press Enter. I am updating the info in the article.

    This doesn’t work. Already at the start, it doesn’t work like you’re describing. When opening the OneDrive update only one file is present: update.xml. No onedrivesetup.exe anywhere.

  3. I spent an hour with this issue until I found this site. Good Fix! Thanks

  4. WORKED! Thank you. The latest usoft update killed my eject icon and OneDrive icon.

  5. Welcome lou, It’s super easy. Navigate to this link, download OnDrive for desktop and run. If already installed select Start OneDrive.

  6. It says that link cannot be found. Been trying to turn off one drive on start up for days now and am just so fed up. No cloud icon in task bar
