I'm using Office365 Business for our machines, and I've noted that the OneDrive accounts that come with these subscriptions is also in the default list of drives used for opening/saving files - most notably, the first drive.


We can't use OneDrive for what we do, and I would like to mask/remove it from the list of available save points, but can't seem to find a way to do it.




Help anyone?

No, it comes up in all the office16 apps as onedrive and a sharepoint site. It's not a bad idea, it's just that in our specific instance it's visibility is causing problems, so I wish to hide it and not make available.

You Can also use

Untick "Show additional places for saving, even if sign in maybe required"




Unfortunately I can't find a GPO setting for this
