Remove OneDrive from Windows 10

And once again, there's something in Windows 10 you simply must remove. OneDrive. Personally, I am more of a DropBox user myself, but I try to avoid cloud storage services as much as possible. Here is how to remove OneDrive from Windows 10 (at least to the extent that you are not messing with the pc too much)

First off, open Task Manager, switch to Start-up tab, select Microsoft OneDrive and click Disable. That should disable the icon in the system tray.

Now, to remove the element in the File Explorer, you will need to modify your registry a bit. Do remember to backup your registry before diong any kind of modifications to it.
