Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can disable Microsoft OneDrive from starting up automatically on your Windows 11 computer when the system starts.
Step 1: Click on the “OneDrive” icon from the taskbar. If the icon isn’t visible, then it might be hidden under the Overflow menu and you will need to click on the upper arrow button to access it.
Step 2: Now, you will see a panel for OneDrive. At the bottom, click on the “Help & Settings” option, and from the context menu that loads, click on the “Settings” option.
Step 3: A new Microsoft OneDrive window will open on your computer. In the “Settings” tab, uncheck the box for the “Start OneDrive automatically when I sign in to Windows” option.
Step 4: Once you have made these changes, click on the “Ok” button to save them.
That’s it. From now onwards, when you restart your computer, the Microsoft OneDrive application won’t be starting automatically. You will need to manually open the app to use it or sync your files and folders with the cloud storage.
